The sexual assault case made against actor Kevin Spacey drew to a close after paperwork was filed in federal court this past week. Just after the death of the accuser, the case was settled in court with the son of the unnamed alleged victim present during the proceedings.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a settlement was made with Spacey’s attorneys and the court to dismiss the case. The actor settled the lawsuit with the late accuser’s estate, following his death earlier this year. No terms of the agreement have been released to the public. The accuser, who was a massage therapist, alleged that Spacey forced him to grab his genitals and attempted to kiss him when he was hired for a session in Miami back in October 2016. Spacey had denied the allegation made against him. 

The accuser died of cancer in September, which led to his son filing a petition in court to become a special administrator. Despite Spacey objecting to the plaintiff refusing to share his identity, the case ended up moving forward with the judge. Now with the case coming to a close, the accuser’s estate filed a notice to dismiss the lawsuit on Monday with both sides agreeing to pay for the costs. Under the court ruling, the case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning it can’t be filed again.

This latest development just comes days after the death of another one of Spacey’s accusers, Norwegian author Ari Behn, who died after an apparent suicide. The ex-husband of Norway’s Princess Martha Louise accused the actor of groping him under a table in 2007. Earlier in July, the actor’s case against an 18-year-old busboy was dropped in Massachusetts after he also accused him of assault in 2016.
