Director gets July hearing for alleged abuse in isles

    A former child model and aspiring actor is accusing "X-Men" franchise director Bryan Singer

A federal judge in Hawaii has set a July 7 hearing on a motion by "X-Men" franchise director Bryan Singer to dismiss a sexual abuse lawsuit from a man who claims he was raped as a 17-year-old.

U.S. District Judge Susan Oki Mollway set the hearing date Thursday, one day after Singer’s lawyers moved to throw out the lawsuit, claiming the accusations are fabricated.

A former child model, Michael Egan III, is accusing Singer of abusing him several times during trips to Hawaii in 1999. Egan also accuses Singer of abusing him earlier in Cali­for­nia as part of a Hollywood sex ring run by another man convicted of luring minors across state lines for sex.

Egan’s lawyer, Jeff Herman, says Egan maintains he was in Hawaii with Singer.
