Former “Party of Five” star Jeremy London dropped his bid to for a permanent court order preventing his family from expressing doubts about his claim that he was kidnapped and by two men and forced to take drugs in Palm Springs. London, 37, claimed the men abducted him in June, and Brandon Adams, 26, was taken into custody in connection with the alleged kidnapping.
But Adams said London went willingly with him and another man and took Xanax and Ecstasy before they dropped him off at his hotel.
London’s mother, Deborah Nielsen, and his twin brother Jason and his girlfriend have said they don’t believe the actor was kidnapped, and on June 30 London filed papers seeking a temporary restraining order to stop them from further talking to the media.
But on July 1, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Irving Shimer said there was no emergency basis for granting the order and that London had other options, including filing a lawsuit for slander.
Although Shimer’s order did not prevent London from seeking a permanent injunction after a trial, on Tuesday London dropped the case altogether. His lawyer, Catherine R. Lombardo, was not immediately available for comment.
