Kevin Spacey is once again trying to stop the lawsuit alleged sexual abuse that has been filed against him. There is a chance that he will actually succeed this time. According to TMZ, the alleged victim of Spacey’s abuse relied on his right to remain silent during the hearing today.

The actor’s lawyers then asked the court to drop the case. According to them, it has now been watered down because the victim did not want to testify.

The judge gave the prosecutors time to decide how they would like to proceed. “It will be difficult to ignore this in court,” he referred to the silent testimony. “It may well be that the case be dismissed for the reasons mentioned, but that will not happen today.” 

The 59-year-old Spacey was the victim in July 2016 in a bar in Nantucket have touched immoral. The former House of Cards actor denies that.
