*One of the five men who accused former Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash of underage sex has dropped his lawsuit in New York, saying he wants to focus on his career instead, reports TMZ.

The lawyer for the man who dropped his case tells the website that no settlement is involved, and that his client stands by his story. The lawyer says his client can re-file his case later, though he’s not saying that’s going to happen, reports TMZ.

This leaves four men who’ve sued Clash for allegedly engaging in sexual escapades with them when they were underage.
