if a guy rapes another man can i file a lawsuit even after the cops dropped the case if the crime was actually committed

Re: sexual crime
The fact that the criminal charges were dropped is not fatal to a potential civil suit. For example, O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of killing Nicole Brown and Ronald Goldman in criminal court but was later sued by the families and found guilty in civil court. This may be a situation that you should talk to an attorney about, especially if you have incurred significant damages and/or will incur damages in the future. Please don't hesitate to call me if you would like to discuss.
The choice of a lawyer is an important choice and should not be based solely upon advertisement. No attorney client relationship exists between us unles or until I agree to represent you in writing.
