The legal assault on accused serial rapist Bill Cosby continues to intensify even as the growing army of accusers intensifies the public shaming of the 78-year-old entertainment icon.Friday could be an especially bad day for Cosby: He's being forced by one of his accusers, Judy Huth, and her unrelenting crusader-lawyer, Gloria Allred, into appearing for a deposition in Los Angeles — a deposition he has fought mightily to avoid. By pm ET, there was still no confirmation that the secret deposition had taken place, and even the usually-voluble Allred had buttoned up under court order, declining to say anything about where or when.
Although the women are expected to repeat stories they have already made public in different forums in recent months, the visuals — more than two dozen women seated together in theater-like rows in a studio — won't be good for Cosby's already battered image. Six if you count one that's been revived from 2005. 15, by Cosby accuser Renita Hill of Pittsburgh, who accuses Cosby of repeatedly drugging and sexually assaulting her in the 1980s when she was a teenager on a children's TV show he hosted in Pittsburgh.
But very little happening of late has been good for Cosby. Hill is alleging she was defamed, placed in a "false light" and emotionally distressed by statements by Cosby, his wife of 51 years, Camille Cosby, and his lawyer, Martin Singer, after Hill came forward, in a TV interview in Pittsburgh, in November 2014, to join a growing chorus of Cosby accusers with her own story.
He has denied all wrongdoing and he has not been charged with a crime, but that's about the only thing he has going for him in the current environment. Hill's is the third lawsuit against Cosby to allege defamation.
In the other cases, a group of three accusers is suing him for defamation in Massachusetts, where he lives.
Cosby had repeatedly tried to get the case dismissed but a judge refused two weeks ago to throw the case out.
Their attorney, Joseph Cammarata, has said he will seek to depose Cosby within weeks.
