John Travolta's First Masseur Accuser Hires Gloria Allred: [ send to a friend ]
After the lawyer reprsenting John Travolta's first masseur accuser dropped his client and withdrew the lawsuit, the accuser has hired powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred.
Okorie Okarocha, the lawyer representing both masseurs who claim they were victims of sexual battery during a massage session, said he dropped the client identified as John Doe No. 1 because he incorrectly listed the date of the alleged incident at the Beverly Hills Hotel as January 16 -- when Travolta wasn't even in Los Angeles.
"I represent John Doe Number One," says Allred. "Mr. Doe's lawsuit was dismissed without prejudice which means that he is still legally entitled to file another lawsuit against John Travolta if he chooses."
"We are in the process of conferring with him regarding the next steps, which he may wish to take. Our client and our firm has no further comment at this time."
Meanwhile, Okarocha says his second client has a strong cases with several witnesses.
"I can guarantee that we has a truckload of witnesses to back up what he's saying." Okarocha says, adding he also has e-mails in which he complained to his supervisor about Travolta's alleged advances.
Travolta's lawyer, Marty Singer, says he also expects the second lawsuit to crumble.
"We fully expect that my client will similarly be vindicated with respect to Doe No. 2, as well as with respect to any other person who makes meritless claims against John Travolta."
