Horatio Sanz settles underage fan’s sexual assault case at SNL party

Horatio Sanz has settled a lawsuit alleging he sexually assaulted an underage superfan at a Saturday Night Live afterparty while cast members including Will Ferrell and Tina Fey allegedly looked on, new court filings show.

Sanz’s accuser – who brought the 2021 case anonymously as Jane Doe – has settled her claims against the comedian and NBCUniversal on undisclosed terms, according to documents filed in the Manhattan Supreme Court case last week.

The unnamed Pennsylvania woman says she first met Sanz when she was 15 and ran an “SNL” fansite — and he was 31.

She said Sanz ended up groping her at a drug-fuelled afterparty on May 11 and 12, 2002 while the cast — including Fey, Ferrell, Maya Rudolph and Rachel Dratch — allegedly looked on and did nothing, according to the lawsuit. At the same party, she claimed, Sanz sexually assaulted her.

The case was settled under undisclosed terms.


Sanz had invited the girl to a taping of the show in 2000, then to a series of afterparties in 2001, where he allowed her to drink, touched her inappropriately and asked her to “sit on his lap,” her suit claimed . He eventually invited her to the 2002 party where the alleged sexual assault took place.

She also claimed Sanz had a year-long cybersex relationship with her in which he asked her to take pictures of himself and later boasted that he masturbated during the conversations, according to the lawsuit.

A spokesman for the law firm representing the woman said: “I can confirm that the parties have resolved their dispute and have moved on.”

The spokesman did not comment on the terms of the settlement.

Attorneys for Sanz, 53, and NBCUniversal did not immediately respond to a request for comment Monday.
