A jury concluded Tuesday that Kevin Spacey did not molest actor Anthony Rapp when Rapp was 14, while both were relatively unknown actors in Broadway plays in the 1980s.
The verdict in federal court in Manhattan brings to a conclusion a civil trial that was an outgrowth of the #MeToo movement. The lawsuit, based on 2017 claims by Rapp, sought $40m in damages.
Deliberations lasted just over an hour. When the verdict was read, Spacey dropped his head, and then hugged lawyers and others before leaving the courtroom.
What if the other cases all turn out this way too?
