Follows on the heels of the first plaintiff, who moved to dismiss his complaint earlier this week
John Travolta's second massage accuser has dropped his case — but the "Pulp Fiction" actor isn't out of the woods just yet.
The second masseur to accuse the "Pulp Fiction" star of inappropriate behavior during a massage session — identified as John Doe #2 in the complaint — moved to dismiss his complaint Wednesday, following on the heels of the first plaintiff, who moved to dismiss his complaint earlier this week.
However, like John Doe #1, the second accuser filed to dismiss his complaint without prejudice, meaning he can refile if he chooses. He's also followed in the first plaintiff's footsteps by retaining media-friendly lawyer Gloria Allred to represent him.
Allred said in a statement that John Doe #2's case may be re-filed in another legal venue.
"We are now representing John Doe #2," Allred said in a statement provided to TheWrap. "We believe that the lawsuit should be filed in another court and, therefore, the lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice. We will be conferring with our client regarding what will happen next in this case."
Allred told TheWrap on Wednesday that she is "in the process of conferring with" John Doe #1 "regarding the next steps, which he may wish to take."
The attorney who filed the original complaint, Okorie Okorocha, has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment.
John Doe #2 — who was added to the lawsuit with an amended complaint days after the complaint was originally filed — claimed that Travolta groped his buttocks and began masturbating during a Jan. 28 massage session at an Atlanta resort.
The initial plaintiff made similar claims about an alleged Jan. 16 massage session at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Jan. 16, though photos and a restaurant receipt placed Travolta in New York City on that day. Reports soon surfaced that the plaintiff had gotten the date of the alleged encounter incorrect, and he parted ways with Okorocha soon after.
Travolta's attorney Martin Singer — who has venehmently denied both men's claims — has not yet responded to TheWrap's request for comment on the second plaintiff's dismissal.
