While the sexual harassment case brought against John Travolta by John Doe #1 appears to be falling apart, a second one is heading to the courts with both sides ready for a fight.

According to report from People Magazine, the second accuser - known as John Doe #2 -- is "gearing up for a no-holds-barred trial.

"But he wants it carried out entirely in private."

"I want a full trial with a private judge," Okorie Okorocha tells PEOPLE, shooting down a report that he’s in talks to enter mediation with Travolta’s attorneys. "There is no mediation. There’ll never be a settlement. I want privacy for sex crime victims."

"It looks like [Travolta’s attorney Marty Singer] wants one hell of a fight, and that is what he’ll get from me," Okorocha adds.

Singer claims his client has done nothing wrong.

"People are going to come forward to get their 15 minutes of fame," Singer tells PEOPLE. "This was all started by Doe #1, and everyone else came out of the woodwork with false claims."

Asked if evidence will be presented to refute Doe #2’s allegations that Travolta assaulted him in an Atlanta, Ga., hotel in January, Singer replied, "We’ll disprove it, but we need specifics first. It’s hard to disprove something when you don’t have more specific allegations."
