Four more women join Bill Cosby defamation suit

Four more women join Bill Cosby defamation suit

In May 2014, Dickinson came forward alleging that she was drugged and sexually assaulted by The Cosby Show frontman in a Lake Tahoe, California hotel in 1982.

"There's no reason that any of the victims of this situation should have to live with a scarlet letter in their lives", Bowman, an Arizona resident, said in a conference call Friday.

"I'm not a liar and I'm going to go under oath to clear my name, and have confidence with a jury that justice will be done."

AIG argues that Cosby's alleged actions aren't covered under the policy, as it includes personal injury claims "arising out of ... sexual molestation, misconduct or harassment".

On that occasion she says Cosby turned all the lights off and forced her to touch his genitals, then attacked her again at his brownstone apartment in NY after she believes he slipped drugs into a glass of wine she gave him.

"Now you don't want to upset me and the plans for your future, do you?" Why would anybody lie about something like this?

Moritz, of California, is an actress who alleges Cosby sexually assaulted her in a dressing room for "The Tonight Show" in 1969. According to her lawsuit, Cosby later contacted her directly and invited her to Las Vegas to "audition" by acting intoxicated.

Joseph Cammarata, the attorney representing all seven women participating in the MA lawsuit, told BuzzFeed News that he does not expect any more defamation lawsuits to be filed. Another Cosby attorney, Monique Pressley, did not respond to a request for comment.

Earlier this month, it looked like Janice Dickinson won a legal battle in her defamation lawsuit against her alleged rapist Bill Cosby and Cosby's former attorney Marty Singer.

However, it looks like a monkey wrench has been thrown into the whole process as the 2nd District Court of Appeal issued a delay to the depositions. After that date, Cosby's team shut down when they saw denial statements opened them up to defamation lawsuits, Cammarata said.
