Director’s accuser quits case

A former child model accusing “X-Men’’ director Bryan Singer of sexual abuse in Hawaii said he wants to dismiss the lawsuit - not because it lacks merit but because he can’t find a new attorney to represent him.

Michael Egan III said in a court filing Wednesday that he previously sought the dismissal in sealed documents in federal court in Honolulu. He wants the case dismissed without prejudice, meaning he could file it again later.

His motion to dismiss “has little to do with the strength of [Singer’s] defense, but rather, it is a consequence of the current circumstances regarding my case, my lack of legal counsel and my inability to proceed in this matter acting on my own behalf,’’ Egan said in his latest filing.
