Singer successfully had the proceedings brought to a halt last week and a motion will be heard at the end of May at which time it will be determined if the case will be sent to arbitration.

Kayden's lawyer, William Waldo, fired off a letter to Singer that reads "please tell Steven Seagal two things. First, the cheap shot threats that might have intimidated other victims and their lawyers don't phase me. Save your ink. Second, Ms. Nguyen's claims are not going away. Five other victims called me yesterday."

Singer fired off a legal salvo to Kayden's attorney and said, "It has become abundantly clear that your strategy is to try this case in the media instead of on its merits," and then goes on to warn Kayden's attorney that if he doesn't dismiss the lawsuit and go to arbitration, per the confidentiality agreement, "we will immediately file a motion to compel arbitration and will seek attorney's fees, costs, and sanctions against your client and your firm in addition to the $50,000 in liquidated damages already due pursuant to the terms of the confidentiality agreement."
