Marilyn Manson Sexual Abuse Lawsuit Dismissed
The lawsuit that accused Marilyn Manson of sexual assault has been dismissed by a judge.
The accuser, listed as Jane Doe, previously accused Manson of raping and sexually abusing her throughout their relationship in 2011.
PEOPLE report that Doe had “repressed her memories” until other women came forward and accused the singer of similar abuse.
However, a Los Angeles judge has now dismissed the case.
According to court documents, obtained by PEOPLE, the judge stated that the accuser made claims in her lawsuit that are “not sufficient to invoke the delayed discovery rule” to get around the lapsed statute of limitations period.”
Documents state that the claim “alleges neither when the repression began — such as immediately after the events took place, or outside the limitations period — nor its nature or extent, such as what memories were repressed or the extent to which Plaintiff was prevented from recalling them.”
The court has issued that Jane has 20 days to “refile the lawsuit and address the judges concerns.”
Attorney’s Adam Wolf and Tracey Cowan released a statement:
“Marilyn Manson wants to silence our client about her rape. He tried to use technical legal arguments to get her case thrown out altogether. The judge thoughtfully analyzed the case law, and rightfully held that her case can go forward, so long as she amends her Complaint to add some additional details.”
“We intend to amend with those additional details very shortly, and look forward to the opportunity to make Manson answer for his actions.”
Marilyn‘s representative failed to comment.
