Spacey must stay away from the young man who accused him of groping him at a MA bar in 2016 and his family, the judge ordered.
Defense lawyer Alan Jackson persuaded Judge Thomas Barrett to order Spacey's alleged victim to preserve all data from his cell phone for six months following the July 7, 2016, incident.
He is back in court on March 4. Spacey will not be required to appear at that pre-trial hearing, as long as he is available by phone, the judge ruled. The alleged victim was represented by assistant district attorney Michael Giardino.
He is accused of groping an 18-year-old waiter.
Spacey's accuser told authorities that he was "texting and Snapchatting" while Spacey allegedly reached down his trousers and repeatedly touched his genitals over the course of three minutes, where the accuser worked as a busboy.
The civil attorney for the accuser said in a statement ahead of the hearing that his client is "leading by example" by coming forward. Spacey also asked the teen about his penis and described his own, the records state.
The 59-year-old actor is one of dozens of men in the entertainment industry, business and politics who have been accused of sexual misconduct since accusations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein in 2017 sparked the #MeToo movement. The man said Spacey bought him several drinks and tried to convince him to come home with him before unzipping the man's trousers and groping him for about three minutes.
"My client is a determined and encouraging voice for those victims not yet ready to report being sexually assaulted,"attorney Mitchell Garabedian said in an e-mail".
