Kevin Clash just scored a big win in the child molestation cases filed against him, as a judge has ruled that three accusers waited too long to file lawsuits.

Suits filed by Cecil Singleton, Kevin Kiadii and a third, unnamed accuser have been dismissed on grounds that the statute of limitations had run out.

Singleton sued in 2012 (when he was 23) claiming an adult Clash seduced him when he was 15. He says they had sex years later, when Cecil was an adult.

In court documents, the judge explains that the statute of limitations expired three years after the accusers turned 18. In other words, it's too late.

The former voice of Elmo, Clash resigned Sesame Street after several men, including Singleton and Kiadii, publicly alleged inappropriate sexual relationships.

Clash, who is openly gay, but has denied any wrongdoing in terms of underage molestation, settled out of court with his initial accuser, Sheldon Stephens.

Clash, the longtime voice of Elmo, left his job after a slew of accusations of underage sex with boys. So is this the new voice of the beloved red puppet?

A rep for Sesame Workshop tells TMZ that this is just a temporary guy/girl and that "no decision has been made for a permanent replacement as of yet."

He says Clash gave him "poppers" to intensify the experience ... and that the limo driver masturbated while watching Clash and Stephens have sex.

Former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash is trying to get all three of the lawsuits alleging sexual misconduct by him dismissed, citing statutes of limitations.

He stands accused of inappropriate sexual relations with boys under the age of 18; Clash previously denied all of the allegations against him.

Clash attorney Michael Berger wrote in a brief Friday:

"There are two applicable types of statutes of limitations, a six-year one based on when the right of action has accrued, and a three-year one based on when the alleged victim turned 18 and was therefore no longer under the disability of being a minor."

According to Clash's camp, both have lapsed.

The unidentified man says he was 16 or 17 in the '90s when he met Clash in Miami Beach.

Afterward, Clash "lured the boy to visit him in New York, with promises to pay for his plane ticket, be a 'dad' to him in New York and give him cash and a free place to stay."

That's according to an excerpt from the filing released by Miami-based attorney Jeff Herman, who also represents two of the three previous Clash accusers.
