The California Supreme Court has turned down Bill Cosby’s challenge to a sexual assault lawsuit against him, meaning the suit can go forward and Cosby could be questioned under oath for the first time in years — by super-aggressive, feminist lawyer Gloria Allred.
“We believe we have a right to take his deposition in this civil lawsuit. We are going to tomorrow provide him with dates in August when we are available to do that,” Allred told KNX Newsradio on Wednesday. “We are willing to even go to Massachusetts where allegedly he resides and take it.”
Judith Huth filed a civil lawsuit late last year against Cosby, who she claimed molested her in 1974 in a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles. She was 15 at the time. Cosby’s attorneys submitted a request for review last month claiming the comedian should not have been publicly named in the suit, citing a California law on childhood sexual cases, according to CNN.
In the lawsuit, Huth claimed that she and a friend, who was 16 at the time, had met Cosby on a film set in Los Angeles. The next weekend, the suit said, he invited them to his tennis club, where he gave them alcohol, and then took them to the Playboy mansion, The Washington Post reported late last year.
