In one of the lawsuits that ended Kevin Spacey's career, a jury on Thursday found that the actor did not sexually abuse Anthony Rapp, 

who was 14 at the time, while they were both relatively unknown actors in Broadway shows in 1986.

The civil trial's verdict was rendered in an instant. After deliberating for a little over an hour

the jury in a federal court in New York concluded that Rapp had not established his claims.

After hearing the verdict, Spacey bowed his head and hugged his attorneys. As he left the courthouse, he avoided speaking to reporters.

His attorney, Jennifer Keller, said, "We're very appreciative to the jury for seeing through these fraudulent charges.

 That there was no truth to any of the allegations," she added

making reference to additional allegations of the actor's sexual misconduct, which included legal action in England.

Rapp claimed in court that Spacey invited him to a party at his apartment and then approached him in a bedroom after the other guests had left.
