Jamie Luner is off the hook in that massive — $250 million — sexual assault lawsuit she was facing … TMZ has learned.
The judge dismissed the lawsuit Anthony Oliver filed earlier this year. TMZ broke the story … Oliver claimed the “Melrose Place” star had plied him with alcohol and drugs at a party in 1998 — when he was just 16 — and then had sex with him.
The judge tossed it based on statute of limitations … pointing out Oliver had waited 20 years to file the suit. It needed to be filed within 8 years after turning 18, or within 3 years of discovering a repressed memory.
Jamie’s reps told us the whole allegation was unfounded, and believed it was part of a “targeted extortion scheme.” The rep also said Oliver had a sordid history with the courts … filing 27 federal lawsuits.
Worth noting … he’s appealing the dismissal.
