As we previously reported, the unidentified masseur's former attorney, Okorie Okorocha, formally dismissed the lawsuit against Travolta on Tuesday, after he and his client parted ways.
The powerhouse civil rights attorney tells RadarOnline.com exclusively, " I represent John Doe #1. Mr. Doe's lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice which means that he is still legally entitled to file another lawsuit against John Travolta if he chooses. We are in the process of conferring with him regarding the next steps, which he may wish to take. Our client and our firm has no further comment at this time."
The Texas man had hired Los Angeles lawyer Okorie Okorocha to represent him, but in a stunning turn of events, the two stopped working together last week. John Doe #1 claimed Travolta sexually assaulted him in Los Angeles on January 16, 2012 and said he could prove Travolta was in town on that date.
But Travolta’s attorney Marty Singer not only vehemently denied the charges, he also provided proof that his client was in New York on the day John Doe #1 claimed the assault took place. John Doe #1 has subsequently claimed that his original date of Jan. 16 was a “miscalculation” and that the alleged assault actually took place a few days earlier.
Okorocha will continue to represent the Atlanta masseur that also made similar allegations against the Pulp Fiction star and is also suing him for sexual assault and battery.
