Former Disney Honcho

Sued Again by Sexual Assault Accuser

In Bizarre New Case

6/11/2014 6:03 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0611-neuman-egan-01

The 31-year-old man who DROPPED his sexual assault case against former Disney exec David Neuman has now refiled the case with some significant changes ... changes that are just plain weird.

Michael Egan held a news conference in April to publicly skewer Neuman, claiming Neuman repeatedly molested him when he was a teenager, at pool parties in L.A. and on vacation in Hawaii.

Egan's lawyer, Jeff Herman, filed the lawsuit in Hawaii because of a forgiving statute of limitations, but then without explanation dropped the lawsuit last week.  It probably had a lot to do with the fact that Neuman busted Egan, who signed a sworn declaration in 2003 saying Neuman NEVER did anything inappropriate with him.

But now Egan has filed another lawsuit -- this time dropping all the Hawaii allegations and focusing on allegations of molestation at L.A. pool parties.

In a bizarre move ... Egan doesn't name Neuman in this lawsuit ... he calls him John Doe.  But it's clear he's referring to Neuman.  The suit refers to Neuman's position at Disney -- there's no doubt it's him.

And get this ... Egan admits he signed that 2003 declaration saying Neuman did nothing inappropriate, but says he signed it "under fear, threats, and duress."  The reason that's so weird -- at the very same time Egan signed it, he was on the attack against 3 other men making the same allegations.

Neuman's lawyer has called Egan's tactics a smear campaign and a shakedown of an innocent man.

This makes me sick. It sounds like this man is jut trying to get money, and using the most f@@@ up way to get it. Of all the things to lie about, especially about someone else is making up sexual things. The accusers life gets ruined. Not only do they have to go through all the legal trouble, they're labeled a pedophile to the world, regardless of whether it's true or not. With that being said, if it really happened why did he drop the suit the first time. Your goal should be to get the sicko off the streets and in jail, not seeing how much money you can get!!

Egan and Herman were counting on public opinion and disgust ?

...weighing heavily in their favor.

Problem being no one believes either.

They're suing an alleged life-style - not actual people.

The weakest thing to ever come around.

Whoa ... back up a minute ... He was supposedly underage but was going to multiple pool parties AND to Hawaii where he was repeatedly molested all those years ago? It seems that someone should be looking at legal action against his parents/guardians too, if these charges move forward. Money Grab!

Players (Egan/Herman) figure if the "Play" doesn't work?

Slickness and glibness will backfire each/every time.

Even Gloria Allred turned this case down.

Egan went to her first, she told him get_lost.

What's weird about saying one person threatened you? I had it done to me when I started a valid lawsuit. They brought around the guy who they said was paid $3,000 to kill me. He looked like he would have done it for a nickel. Anyway, I'd sign something too if I had strong evidence someone was going to hurt me or my family.
