Former Disney Exec

Effectively Cleared

In Questionable Sex Abuse Suit

Former Disney Exec David Neuman has been quietly dropped from a sexual molestation case filed by a man who raked him over the coals at a very public news conference.

Michael Egan -- now 31 -- filed the suit against Neuman in April, claiming Neuman was part of a Hollywood sex ring repeatedly preying on Egan at pool parties, who was 15 at the time.  Egan's lawyer, Jeff Herman, held a news conference where he and Egan attacked Neuman and others.

But Neuman's lawyer, Patty Glaser, filed legal docs blowing Egan's claim out of the water, producing a sworn declaration from Egan back in 2003 in which Egan said he "never had any kind of physical contact" with Neuman that was sexual and that Neuman "never acted inappropriately."

Egan and Herman did not hold a news conference to announce the dismissal of the lawsuit. We spoke with Herman but he had no comment.

Neuman's lawyer, Patty Glaser, told the Hollywood Reporter, "We will hold accountable those who wrongly created the hurt and damage by making outrageous, unfounded assertions that cannot be undone."

Egan has not dropped his cases against 2 other Hollywood big wigs, but this isn't going to help his credibility.

Why did Egan have to sign this sworn declaration back in 2003 in the first place?

Why would they have him sign a declaration stating that he wasn't molested?

That is extremely suspect imo

Power with money can hide truth, even change it. What do you call 100 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? A good start.

This Egan guy is disgusting. He’s just making it more difficult for people who were actually molested to get justice. They should be able to prosecute him for filing false lawsuits just to make a quick buck.

Egan is just looking to make a quick buck, and he got caught in his lies, at least regarding Neuman. I hope they prosecute him for false accusations. Americans are too quick to yell "lawsuit" looking for a payoff, and the only ones who really win are the lawyers. It diminishes the effectiveness of the laws.

Soooo the accusor accused ppl a while back and signed a paper outlining who did and didn't participate?! Now he was trying to sue one of those he said didn't but got caught in his lies when the paper was presented to him?! Lol. Idiots like Egan are why so many victims are called liars and not believed. These twinks and their money grabs are why real victims go unnoticed and have no help.
