Former Sesame puppeteer Clash files for dismissal of lawsuits

By Dru Sefton

Puppeteer Kevin Clash, who resigned his Sesame Street role as Elmo after multiple charges of sexual impropriety surfaced last year, is seeking to have the charges dropped, according to The Wrap, an entertainment news site.

An attorney for Clash filed papers in U.S. District Court in New York on Friday. Clash contends the three lawsuits against him should be dropped because the statute of limitations on the allegations has expired.
