Alleged Abuse Victim Drops Case Against Dylan
This news comes after a woman who accused Bob Dylan of sexually abusing her during the 1960s, dropped the case.
Dylan had always denied these allegations, branding them “ludicrous”.
“Mr. Dylan will vigorously defend himself against these lawyer-driven lies and seek redress against all those responsible. Including by seeking monetary sanctions against persons responsible for manufacturing and bringing this abusive lawsuit”, his lawyer said back in January.
Dylan’s lawyer Orin Snyder said, “This case is over. It is outrageous that it was ever brought in the first place”, he said. “We are pleased that the plaintiff has dropped this lawyer-driven sham and that the case has been dismissed with prejudice”.
