A young man who accused Kevin Spacey of groping him at a resort island bar in 2016 filed a lawsuit against the actor, who is also fighting a criminal charge stemming from the alleged assault.
The lawsuit filed Wednesday seeks unspecified damages for “severe and permanent mental distress and emotional injuries.”
The accusation was first brought in 2017 by former Boston TV anchor Heather Unruh, who said Spacey got her then 18-year-old son drunk and sexually assaulted him at the Club Car, a restaurant and bar on Nantucket where the teen worked as a busboy.
Spacey, who has denied the groping the teen, pleaded not guilty to indecent assault and battery in January. His lawyers have accused the man of lying in the hopes of winning money in a civil case against the two-time Oscar-winner.

After a Netflix cancelation in March seemed like the end of the show, fan favorite One Day at a Time will have a new life on the Pop network, beginning in 2020.
The multicam sitcom, created for Netflix as an update of the classic ’70s comedy of the same name, follows a Cuban-American family living in Los Angeles.
In this revised deal, the series will air on the CBS-owned Pop for a 13-episode Season 4. Once the full season has aired, CBS has the option to air those same episodes on the main broadcast network.
On Pop, One Day at a Time joins a programming lineup that also includes the increasing-in-popularity CBC production Schitt’s Creek, from creators and co-stars Eugene and Dan Levy.
The slate of network originals also includes the Anna Paquin-starring Flack and the comedy series Hot Date. One Day at a Time will be designated as a Pop original going forward, with the original three seasons staying on the Netflix platform.
