Judge Weighing Motions in Kevin Spacey Alleged Groping Case

A judge is weighing motions filed by lawyers for Kevin Spacey, charged with groping an 18-year-old man on Nantucket in 2016.

The Oscar-winning former "House of Cards" actor didn't attend Thursday's hearing at Nantucket District Court.

Spacey's attorneys have been seeking to preserve phone and electronic records between the man -- who says Spacey unzipped his pants and fondled him -- and the man's girlfriend at the time.

USA Today reports the hearing concluded with the judge taking the motions under advisement.

The assault allegedly occurred at a restaurant on the island off Cape Cod where the young man worked as a busboy.

Spacey pleaded not guilty in January to felony indecent assault and battery. His lawyers have called the accusations "patently false."

The next hearing is June 3.
