According to court documents obtained by Radar, Rapp rushed to court this week opposing Spacey's plea to block certain topics from being discussed.
As we first reported, the House of Cards actor wrote a letter to the court claiming he believed Rapp was planning on asking him questions meant to harass him at the depo.
Spacey asked for Rapp not to be allowed to ask questions about his past sexual or romantic relationships that dealt with consenting adults.
“To the extent Plaintiff questions Mr. Fowler about his prior sexual or romantic relationships with other consenting adults, he should not be permitted to request that Mr. Fowler reveal the identities of his partners,” his letter read.
The actor also wanted any allegations of inappropriate behavior from unnamed alleged victims not allowed. He believed Rapp planned to reference "various tabloid stories of third parties’ unsubstantiated (and in some cases, anonymous) allegations that Mr. Fowler has behaved inappropriately."
Rapp accuses Spacey of an alleged sexual assault in the '80s.
Rapp, who was a child actor, says he was 14 at the time when the actor invited him back to his apartment. He claims Spacey had him go to the bedroom where he grabbed his butt. The suit claims Spacey proceeded to lay on top of him without consent.
Spacey denies the allegations and has moved to dismiss the lawsuit. He hired an expert who came to the conclusion that Rapp fabricated the story because he wanted to be a part of the #MeToo movement.
In his newly filed document, Rapp demanded the judge shut down Spacey's request.
He agreed to a protective order that prohibits both sides from publicly disclosing the name of any witness who alleges that he or she was sexually harassed, abused, or assaulted by defendant Spacey."
However, Rapp did not agree to a protective order over the other topics. He wrote, "Spacey asks this Court to block all questioning into the following areas: prior sexual or romantic relationships with other consenting adults, allegations of inappropriate behavior by other accusers (including C.D.), and the investigation by the London Metropolitan Police, citing virtually no case law in support of his claims."
"He submits no evidence whatsoever that questions about his allegedly consensual sexual or romantic relationships will harass, annoy, or intrude on his privacy," his attorney argued.
The letter reads, "Mr. Rapp has no intention of exploring generally what happens in the bedroom between defendant and his consensual, of age partners." However, believes questions concerning whether Spacey’s romantic and sexual relationships with other adults (totally unknown to Mr. Rapp) are relevant to the case at hand and could lead to other victims' names coming up.
A hearing was held yesterday on the matter where the judge ruled on the terms of Spacey's deposition. The order has yet to be released.
