Final Sex Abuse Suit Against Kevin Clash Dismissed by Judge

Last sex-abuse lawsuit against Elmo actor, Kevin Clash, tossed

The final sex abuse claim against former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash has been dismissed. 

A judge in Pennsylvania dismissed the last of five sex-abuse lawsuits filed against the Emmy-winning puppeteer who voiced the “Sesame Street” character Elmo. The ruling did not weigh the merits of the claims but said 25-year-old accuser Sheldon Stephens filed suit too late against actor Kevin Clash.

Stephens accused Clash, now 53, of luring him into a sexual relationship after they met at a 2004 networking event for actors when he was about 16.

Four similar lawsuits involving other accusers were previously dismissed in New York, where Clash lives, defense lawyer Michael Berger said.
