Director Bryan Singer Sexual Assault Lawsuit

FREE Case evaluation

Serious injuries deserve experienced attorneys

Sexual Assault Lawyer Washington D.C.Cesar Sanchez-Guzman filed a lawsuit against “X-men” director Bryan Singer Thursday, claiming Singer sexually assaulted him on a yacht in Seattle when he was just 17.

The two met at a yacht party in 2003, and Singer gave Sanchez-Guzman a tour of the boat. After he showed the then 17-year-old the master bedroom, he shut the door and requested oral sex from him. When Sanchez-Guzman declined, Singer allegedly raped him.

“Later, Bryan Singer approached Cesar and told him that he was a producer in Hollywood and that he could help Cesar get into acting as long as Cesar never said anything about the incident,” the lawsuit said. “He then told Cesar that no one would believe him if he ever reported the incident, and that he could hire people who are capable of ruining someone’s reputation.”

Sanchez-Guzman requests damages for experiencing “severe psychological, mental and emotional injuries, shame, humiliation and loss of enjoyment of life.”

Singer denies these allegations and plans to defend himself in full force, according to his lawyer Andrew Brettler, who threatened to bring a malicious prosecution lawsuit against Sanchez-Guzman for the claims.

Brettler said that Sanchez-Guzman didn’t disclose the alleged claim when he filed bankruptcy a few years ago. “But conveniently, now that the bankruptcy court discharged all of his debts, he is able to recall the alleged events.”

Brettler added that Sanchez-Guzman’s attorney is the same attorney who represented Michael Egan, the convicted felon who sued Singer in 2014. The lawsuit was thrown out after all the facts came out and Egan’s claims fell apart.

The lawsuit against Singer surfaced the same week he was fired from his film “Bohemian Rhapsody.” According to reports, the director didn’t show up to the set in weeks and forced production to shut down last Friday. Singer said he was helping a sick parent at the time.

Singer is one of the many directors in Hollywood accused of sexual misconduct recently. In October, 38 women accused director James Toback of sexual harassment. These women claimed the “Two Girls and a Guy” director persuaded aspiring actors to go to his hotel room after approaching them on the streets. In the hotel room, Toback reportedly asked the women about their sex lives and then rubbed his groin against their legs.

In 1989, Spy Magazine even published an article describing Toback’s sexual behavior. The article went into detail about how the director allegedly harassed aspiring actresses, but it referred to the women as “pickupees.’

Toback said the allegations against him are false and that he didn’t remember meeting any of the women. He added that it was biologically impossible for him to do those acts because of the medication he takes.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
