Kevin Spacey will not be prosecuted for an allegation of sexual assault dating back to 1992.

The statute of limitations has also reportedly passed for Seagal's case, and the reporting party declined to be interviewed for the case against Anderson.

Los Angeles prosecutors said on Tuesday they did not plan to file sexual assault charges in three separate cases targeting actors Kevin Spacey, Steven Seagal and Anthony Anderson. The allegations, which he has repeatedly denied, have been levelled by actresses, film workers and reporters.

In a statement to PEOPLE, Anderson "unequivocally" disputed the woman's claims.

The D.A.'s task force was formed after dozens of Hollywood directors, producers and actors were accused of sexual misconduct in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sexual abuse scandal.

According to the district attorney's office, the victim was not a minor at the time of the alleged crime.

They say any alleged sex crime involving an adult that occurred in 1992 would fall outside of California's statute of limitations.

A number of allegations of sexual misconduct have been made against the Oscar-winning actor since last November, when he was accused by actor Anthony Rapp of making a sexual advance in 1986.

In the case of Seagal, the allegation of assault is from 1993, when the victim was 18 years old.

The Anderson case, which was investigated by the Los Angeles Police, involved a woman who claimed he assaulted her earlier this year.

Mr Spacey claimed to have no memory of the events but publicly apologised. The accusation was made less than two weeks after Anderson, 48, received his fourth Emmy nomination for outstanding lead actor in a comedy series for "Black-ish". His film Billionaire Boys Club flopped, he was sacked from Netflix drama House Of Cards and erased from Sir Ridley Scott's All The Money In The World.
