The move comes after similar cases were withdrawn against television executives David Neuman and Garth Ancier. “X-Men” director Bryan Singer remains the only defendant still being sued. Egan sued the four in April, accusing them of sexually abusing him during trips to Hawaii in 1999. Singer denies the allegations.

Egan’s attorney, Jeff Herman, did not respond to a request for comment.
