Spacey also faces a criminal charge of indecent assault and battery stemming from the alleged Nantucket incident.

A MA man who accused Kevin Spacey of groping him at a resort island bar in 2016 has filed a lawsuit against the actor.

A civil lawsuit was filed against the actor in the Nantucket courthouse on Wednesday.

The lawsuit reportedly seeks unspecified damages for "severe and permanent mental distress and emotional injuries", according to the AP.

On Christmas Eve, Spacey posted a weird video in response to the Nantucket allegation in the voice of Frank Underwood, his character from the Netflix series "House of Cards". The plaintiff is identified in court papers but has asked that his name not be published, as a victim of an alleged sexual assault.

Spacey's attorney did not immediately return PEOPLE's request for comment.

Spacey became embroiled in controversy in October 2017 when actor Anthony Rapp accused him of trying to seduce him in 1986 when Rapp was 14. The controversy led to Spacey being dropped from the Netflix television series "House of Cards" and erased from the film "All the Money in the World". The accusation came amid a flurry of other sexual misconduct allegations and claims that Spacey made unwanted sexual advances towards young male actors.

The Nantucket accuser alleges that Spacey bought him several drinks, unzipped his trousers and groped him for about three minutes, though he tried to move Spacey's hands.

The allegations first emerged after former Boston TV anchor Heather Unruh claimed the actor got her son drunk and sexually assaulted him.

The girlfriend said it seemed that Spacey was hitting on him, and told him to have fun. but not too much.

The criminal case against Spacey has centered on the cellphone used by the accuser the night of the alleged groping, which the defense says it needs to recover text messages it says will support Spacey's claims of innocence.

The alleged victim's attorney said they could not find the phone, but Nantucket District Court Judge Thomas Barrett has set a deadline of July 8 for them to locate it and hand it over.

Unruh accused Spacey of assault in a 2017 press conference, leading Massachusetts State Police to open an investigation into the allegation and the eventual criminal charge.
