John Travolta Lawsuit -- First Accuser Dismisses Case


The first man to accuse John Travolta of sexual assault has just filed papers dismissing his lawsuit against the actor ... TMZ has learned. 

The masseur had claimed Travolta assaulted him on January 16 at the Beverly Hills Hotel. But as TMZ first reported, flight records show Travolta was in NYC that day ... and was even photographed inside the Greenwich Hotel.

The dismissal papers were filed this morning in California and specifically state that it is only John Doe One who is dropping his claim.

A second masseur -- John Doe #2 -- is still pursuing his claim, which alleges Travolta sexually assaulted him in an Atlanta hotel.
