The unidentified masseur who first sued John Travolta for sexual battery has dropped the claim. Tavolta’s lawyer released a statement, saying his “client is completely vindicated by Doe No. 1 dropping his claims and dismissing his lawsuit. We fully expect that my client will similarly be vindicated with respect to Doe No. 2.” (E!)
Update: John Doe No. 1 is now being represented by attorney Gloria Allred, according to Radar.com. “Mr. Doe's lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice which means that he is still legally entitled to file another lawsuit against John Travolta if he chooses,” Allred said. “We are in the process of conferring with him regarding the next steps, which he may wish to take. Our client and our firm has no further comment at this time.”
