Kevin Spacey is demanding a judge throw out the lawsuit accusing the actor of sexual battery and wants the man suing him to pay his legal bills.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Spacey denies all allegations of wrongdoing in the case brought by John Doe.

Spacey argues that Doe has "suffered no damages attributable to any wrongful conduct" by him. He claims the man also is owed no damages.

The actor also argues that he "did not engage in any wrongful conduct, let alone wrongful conduct with malice or reckless disregard to Plaintiff’s rights and feelings."

He is adamant “no sexual battery” occurred and wants the case to be dismissed quickly. Spacey also wants the accuser to pay his legal bills.

As The Blast first reported, Doe sued Kevin Spacey for sexual battery, gender violence, battery, assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment.

The man claims in October 2016, he was assaulted by the actor while giving a massage at his private residence in Malibu. The man claims Spacey grabbed his hand and forced him to fondle the star’s genitals and made an offer for oral sex.

Doe said he eventually grabbed his massage table and left after refusing the actor’s alleged advances. He sued seeking unspecified damages.

Kevin Spacey filed docs demanding the case be dismissed unless Doe revealed his identity.

The judge recently sided with Doe by ordering he can continue on without revealing his identify. The decision was a blow for Spacey who had been fighting to force him to name himself.

The accuser claimed he feared threats from Spacey’s fans and believed he had every right to proceed anonymously. Spacey demanded he reveal his name, arguing it was unfair for him to not use his name.

The judge in the case ruled that "Plaintiff’s vulnerability to humiliation, harassment, and threats, is further exacerbated by the nature of Defendant’s status as a high-profile celebrity and the media attention that comes with it. The Court finds that anonymity is necessary to protect Plaintiff’s privacy and to protect against any further trauma."

The case is ongoing.
