Actor has been hit with a lawsuit for an alleged groping of a busboy at a Nantucket bar in July 2016.
Spacey is already facing a criminal charge of indecent assault stemming from the incident. He has pleaded not guilty and is set to go on trial sometime this fall.
In the suit, the plaintiff alleges that Spacey plied him with alcohol and then sexually assaulted him, by “touching and fondling the Plaintiff’s private areas, including the Plaintiff’s genitals.”
The suit alleges that Spacey caused the plaintiff “severe and permanent mental distress and emotional injuries,” forcing him to seek therapeutic care and causing a loss of income.
