A lawyer for the estate of the massage therapist, a Los Angeles County man identified in the lawsuit as John Doe, did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Tuesday evening.

The massage therapist sued Mr. Spacey, 60, last January. He accused Mr. Spacey of grabbing his hand and putting it on the actors genitals during a massage at a home in Malibu, Calif., that had been rented by Mr. Spaceys production company. The lawsuit claimed that Mr. Spacey groped and tried to kiss the massage therapist before offering him oral sex.

But the massage therapist died in September at 62, leaving his estate 90 days to take over as the plaintiff in the lawsuit. In November, a California Superior Court judge signed an order appointing the mans son as the special administrator of his estate.

The cases conclusion came less than a week after Ari Behn, a Scandinavian writer who had accused Mr. Spacey of groping him, died by suicide, according to the Norwegian news service NTB.

Mr. Spaceys acting career, which includes a pair of Oscars, all but vanished after several people accused him of sexual misconduct.
