    The woman, who has not revealed her real name and only goes by Jane Doe sued Manson is May. She claimed that the two dated in 2011 before things turned bad and he raped her.

    The woman claimed that she had repressed her memories for all these years. The judge dismissed it becahse the woman was not able to say in detail how her memory was repressed, or why she didn’t step forward with it earlier.

    Meanwhile, Manson isn’t out of the woods yet. He is currently being sued by three other women as well. This includes his former assistant and Game of Thrones star Esmé Bianco.
