California Court Denies Cosby’s Attempt To Stop Sexual Assault Lawsuit

The California Supreme Court denied Bill Cosby’s petition to review a lawsuit filed by Judith Huth over an accusation that Cosby had sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion when she was fifteen years old, clearing the way for litigation to move forward.

Huth’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, called the court’s decision “a very big victory” and said that she plans to take Cosby’s sworn deposition within the next month. Huth is one of, now, more than 40 women who have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct, but one of only four who have filed lawsuits, and the only woman seeking damages for the misconduct itself – the other three cases are defamation suits following Cosby’s assertion that his accusers had lied.
