There have been many accusations made towards Bill Cosby over the last year, but it looks like the actor is finally going to have to speak up in a court of law.
Just a few days ago a never-seen-before 2005 deposition made its way into the press, revealing his sworn testimony in a lawsuit filed by a woman named Andrea Constand. At the time Andrea accused the actor of drugging and molesting her. In the decade-old deposition Bill admitted to getting prescriptions for Quaaludes for his sore back, but actually gave it to women. He also revealed that he paid women off with a private account so that wife Camille wouldn’t find out about his affairs.
But now, 10 years later, Bill is set to return to court to face more allegations. RadarOnline reports that Bill will be forced to undergo another deposition from attorney Gloria Allred, who is representing Judy Huth in her case against the actor.
In a statement she told Radar: “Today, I am extremely happy to announce that we have won a major victory in the case of Judy Huth v. William H. Cosby. In our case we represent Ms. Huth in a lawsuit alleging that Mr. Cosby committed acts of sexual misconduct on her at the Playboy Mansion when she was only 15 years old. Mr. Cosby, through his attorneys, has been trying to block Ms. Huth from moving forward for some time,” Allred said. “His latest effort involved his lawyers filing a petition asking the California Supreme Court to review the laws under which prior rulings in this case were based. Through his lawyers Mr. Cosby argued that the law did not allow our client to cure alleged procedural irregularities in the filing of the suit by a prior attorney, not associated with our firm, who represented Ms. Huth when she filed the case. Ms. Huth subsequently changed attorneys and engaged our firm to represent her. Today we are happy to announce that the California Supreme Court has denied Mr Cosby’s petition seeking review of Ms. Huth’s case against him.”
She added: “We had previously scheduled Mr. Cosby’s deposition for June 26, 2015, in this case, but we were unable to take it, because Mr. Cosby filed his petition with the Suprme Court. Now that the petition has been denied, we plan to notice his deposition and we will seek to take it as soon as possible within the next 30 days. We are looking forward to Mr. Cosby answering questions under oath at his deposition and we will continue to seek justice for our courageous client, Judy Huth.”
This is going to get messy! Watch this space…
