A judge has dismissed a case accusing Marilyn Manson of sexual assault. 

According to TMZ, which obtained legal documents, the lawsuit was dismissed on Tuesday due to the statute of limitations having expired regarding the claims. 

The case was filed against the shock rocker in May by an accuser known only as Jane Doe. She claimed that she dated Manson in 2011 and when things went south, he raped her. The accuser also claimed that she had repressed the memory, but was unable to specify how the memory was repressed. 

Manson, born Brian Warner, still faces several other lawsuits from women with their own allegations of sexual assault by the rocker, including actor Esmé Bianco, model Ashley Morgan Smithline and Warner’s former assistant, Ashley Walters.
