In August 2021, Bob Dylan, was accused of sexually abusing a 12-year old girl fifty years ago.
However, last July 28 hearing, the unidentified accuser requested the case to be dismissed “with prejudice.” It means that it will be permanently closed and cannot be refiled. The sudden action came after the defense team alleged the plaintiff deleted crucial messages related to the case, which is by the way, true.
Dylan was accused of abusing the woman more than 50 years ago, supplying her with drugs and alcohol, threatening her with physical violence and leaving her “emotionally scarred and psychologically damaged to this day.” The singer’s lawyers alleged that the woman’s lawyers were just looking “to profit off of this fraudulent lawsuit.”
Prior to the recent hearing, the judge warned the plaintiff’s attorneys that they may face serious consequences if they did not turn over emails and text messages that had been requested for the case. Days later, the accuser fired her lawyers, a move Dylan’s legal team characterized as “designed to evade court-ordered document production obligations and the threat of sanctions.”
Dylan’s attorneys later claimed the plaintiff permanently destroyed the emails and text messages in question. Dylan’s lawyer said in a statement to Billboard:
“This case is over. It is outrageous that it was ever brought in the first place.
“We are pleased that the plaintiff has dropped this lawyer-driven sham and that the case has been dismissed with prejudice.”
