Terry Crews' lawsuit dismissed

A criminal complaint filed by actor Terry Crews against a Hollywood agent who allegedly groped him has been rejected.

The Expendables star sued William Morris Endeavor talent agent Adam Venit and the company for sexual harassment in December, after accusing the film executive of grabbing his genitals during a party in 2016.

According to TMZ, the case has been dismissed by Los Angeles lawmakers as it exceeds the statue of limitations - a misdemeanor charge in the state must be filed within a year.

Venit completed a 30-day suspension in November, while his bosses carried out an internal investigation. He was reinstated but demoted at the end of last year as WME executives stated they had found no evidence of sexual misconduct.

Crews recently voiced his frustration over the fact he still earns money for the agent he claims violated him.

"What's so strange and crazy is that I'm still paying them (the talent agency that employs Venit)," the 49-year-old told Variety reporters last month. "I go to work, and I still have to send a check to my molester.

"This is Hollywood, it is insane. I look at my bank statement, and I'm like, 'D**n, this is the most wrong thing of all time'. I'm calling it, I'm going to play this whole thing out. If I don't get justice, nobody can."

Venit issued a legal response, in which he maintained he did not mean to be sexual when he grabbed the actor's genitals.

"He (Venit) tried to tell everyone it wasn't sexual. How do you do that? How is that possible?" Terry questioned. "No woman, no child, no man, anywhere, in whatever business, should ever put up with being treated less than a human being, ever."
