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.
