According to the article, this is the fourth celebrity lawsuit he's dropped.

Not two or three. Four.

You'd think, at some point, he'd just say to himself, "Maybe I should find a real job."

But I heard tell from the fark GEDs in Law that this was a slam dunk.

Just because the victim discredits himself and Singer's lawyer can provide exculpatory evidence doesn't mean it didn't happen. It's, like, Hollywood. Everyone knows what it's like in, like, Hollywood, man.

I wonder what's going to happen to the documentary that was following all of this. It'll be a fascinating watch if they actually finish and release it.

There are people who still believe he's a molestor and got away with it because he's rich and famous so they cover up for him.

You can't punish people for making up stories... otherwise it might discourage other people from coming forward and making up stories!

Where's all the farkers that piled on the "Singer is a kiddie diddler" bandwagon? Guess the Court of Social Justice was wrong on this one.

No, it just means that Bryan Singer wasn't diddling a kid in Hawaii at the same time he was shooting X-Men in Toronto.

Didn't stop people all over Fark from believing it was a cover up and that the movie studio was covering for him.

Nightcrawler has a two mile limit, unless there are exceptional circumstances, and he's usually exhausted after he goes over two miles.

Some people just don't understand that being credulous about every possible claim doesn't make them defenders of victims, just outright suckers. That said, we always need to hear the claims to judge.

I read that as a "two minute limit" initially, and it seemed to fit.

I was one of those. I argued that Singer's well-known habit of chasing barely-legal casting-couch tail put me on the side of believing the accusation until more information came down the pike.

More information has come down the pike.

So I still think he's a perv and a predator for using his position in Hollywood to get barely-legal technically-consensual tail. But if even the accuser's lawyers don't want anything to do with the case, I'll say that the creep isn't guilty of this one.

Technically consensual is the best kind of consensual.

Unless there's a woman involved. Then it's misogyny.

Damn that blonde kids is going to be hot when he's legal.

On a more serious side, I suspect that Singer's going to spend a lot more time vetting his possible sexual conquests for age.  That's a good thing, regardless of what happened with this guy.

Unfortunately, it is way too hard to get someone like that declared a vexatious litigant in California.  He'll keep doing it even if he has to start going pro se.

That's not actually what the article says. What it says is that Egan's lawyers were keeping info from him so he dropped them, and that he decided not to try and find new counsel to take over their case, meaning he wants his new counsel to build their own case instead whenever he finds them. If this case had no merit, the judge has had plenty of chances to throw it out on that basis; that's not to say Singer's guilty, but it is to say there's enough here that the judge wants to give Egan a fair chance to make his case.

Heron: If this case had no merit, the judge has had plenty of chances to throw it out on that basis;


Oh really?  Please, share with us at which point the judge had  an opportunity to throw out the case. The Judge would not be able to evaluate the truth of the evidence presented at any point in order to throw it out.  Assuming the guy is making things up, his complaint would survive demurrer because the Court must assume all facts alleged as true.  Assuming he would testify that he was assaulted, that would be sufficient to raise a single triable issue of fact to permit the case to survive a motion for summary judgment/adjudication.  The case would ultimately be able to go to trial and the judge would not be able to dismiss the case.

It's not about whether there is enough there for the judge to "want to give Edgar a fair chance."  Them's the rules even in some of the most frivolous of cases.

As I recall you were one of the "less than awesome" Farkers who kept on believing he was guilty even though very clear documentation surfaced indicating Singer wasn't even in the country when the supposed molestation happened. Buddy, you really should stop letting your prejudices rule your perceptions, you have a poor track record when relying on those prejudices. Maybe, I don't know, try to get some info then decide how you feel about something?
