Three Sexual Abuse Lawsuits Against Elmo Puppeteer Kevin Clash Dismissed Published: April 24, 2014

Three sexual abuse lawsuits against former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash will not proceed after the U.S. Court of Appeals upheld a district judge’s July 2013 ruling that the cases fell outside the statute of limitations for civil action, according to BuzzFeed.

In 2012, Kevin Clash was accused of abusing multiple men when they were minors; Clash resigned from Sesame Street that November, after working on the show for nearly 30 years.

“Personal matters have diverted attention away from the important work Sesame Street is doing and I cannot allow it to go on any longer,” Clash said at the time. “I am deeply sorry to be leaving and am looking forward to resolving these personal matters privately.”
