The man who says actor Kevin Spacey groped him in a Nantucket, Massachusetts, bar in July 2016 filed a civil lawsuit against the actor, who also faces criminal charges from the incident.
The civil complaint alleges that Spacey plied the accuser with alcohol and then sexually assaulted him by “touching and fondling” his genitals.
Spacey has denied the allegations through his attorneys in the pending criminal matter. The allegations in the civil complaint match closely with the accusations in the criminal case, where Spacey has pleaded not guilty to a felony indecent assault and battery charge after the encounter with the man when he was 18.
The lawsuit alleges that the accuser has “suffered, and will continue to suffer in the future severe mental distress and emotional injuries.”
