John Travolta's lawyer insists his client has been "vindicated" after an unnamed male masseur moved to dismiss his sexual battery lawsuit against the star on Tuesday.

The plaintiff, identified only as John Doe, sued Travolta earlier this month, claiming the Grease star touched his genitals and sexually propositioned him during a massage at the Beverly Hills Hotel on January 16.

Travolta's attorney Marty Singer immediately dismissed the allegations, insisting that his client wasn't even in California on the day the plaintiff claims to have met the actor.

And now it appears the accuser has changed his mind.

In a statement, Singer writes, "My client is completely vindicated by Doe #1 dropping his claims and dismissing his lawsuit."

And the lawyer fully expects another unnamed masseur who also filed a suit against Travolta to move to dismiss his case too: "We fully expect that my client will similarly be vindicated with respect to Doe #2, as well as with respect to any other person who makes meritless claims against John Travolta."
