The man who is anonymously suing Kevin Spacey for sexual battery will have to reveal his identity but not to the general public, just to him.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a judge ruled that John Doe "will reveal his true and complete name" to Spacey's counsel.
"The Parties will continue to confer in good faith to try to reach agreement on a more comprehensive stipulated protective order that addresses each Party's needs and interest," the order states.
The order does note that "unless otherwise ordered by the Court, Plaintiff's name cannot be disclosed in a public filing with the Court while Plaintiff's name has been designated as 'Confidential.' A filing Party will redact Plaintiff's name or use the pseudonym John Doe on any materials filed with the Court."
