A U.S. District Judge in Manhattan has decided that a man accusing Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey of sexually abusing him when he was 14 cannot proceed with the case anonymousuly. On Monday, Judge Lewis A. Kaplan refused to let the man proceed only as "C.D." in a lawsuit filed in September in New York state court and later moved to federal court.

The study, which was obtained by the Times and has not yet been published, determined that two months after treatment, 67 percent of participants who received MDMA did not qualify for a PTSD diagnosis any more, compared with 32 percent who did not take the drug. The research is expected to be published in Nature Medicine later this month and moves MDMA closer to getting Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorization for therapeutic use. The FDA would need to analyze another phase three trial showing the benefits of MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD with approval coming at the earliest in 2023.
