Read a text message thread from the night of the alleged assault by Kevin Spacey in Nantucket bar

A newly released court filing in the criminal sexual assault case against actor Kevin Spacey shows a string of messages exchanged between the accuser and his girlfriend during critical moments of his encounter with Spacey.

The filing submitted by defense attorneys includes screenshots of texts that the man provided to investigators, and it argues that he did not provide a full set of texts, pointing out that the exchange appears to start in mid-conversation.

Here’s the conversation shown in the screenshots:
