    Bill Cosby Drops Lawsuit Against Rape Accuser

    Excerpt:

    On Thursday, Cosby voluntarily dismissed his lawsuit against former Temple University employee Andrea Constand and her attorneys. The entertainer sued them for allegedly breaching the confidentiality provision of a 2006 settlement agreement. On July 18, a judge partially rejected a motion to dismiss.

    According to a statement put out by Cosby's attorney Angela Argusa, "With a court validation of his ability to proceed forward in that action to protect his own rights, Mr. Cosby has today stepped away from that suit and will instead focus his efforts on defending himself against the claims that have been lodged against him."

    As a result of the move, the parent company of National Enquirer also escapes claims of breaching contract over articles published about Constand's allegations and Cosby's deposition.

    The criminal case against Cosby for allegedly sexually assaulting Constand back in 2004 continues.

    The prosecution has filed a motion for 13 alleged #BillCosby victims to testify in the Andrea Constand trial.

    None of the 13 have been named yet. Future hearing will decide how many -- if any -- can testify.

    Bill Cosby's trial date has been set for June 5, 2017.

    jessica testa ‏@jtes 57 minutes ago
    The court wanted the trial to be in the February-April range, but Cosby's attorney is "extraordinarily over-scheduled," the judge said.

    Cosby exits court. His lawyer: "The time has come to shine a spotlight on the trampling of Mr. Cosby's civil rights."

  5. As embattled comedy legend Bill Cosby enters the legal fight of his life, his attorneys have begun to invoke the concept of "racial bias" playing a role in the case being made against him.

    The 79-year-old actor is scheduled to go on trial next summer for drugging and molesting Andrea Constand, then an employee of his alma mater Temple University, in his home in 2004. Cosby has denied any wrongdoing in the case — which he had previously settled in 2006 — and has maintained that their encounter was consensual.

    Cosby on seducing women: 'They need chemicals'

    Quote:

    As a 13-year-old boy, Bill Cosby secretly sprinkled what he thought was an aphrodisiac on girls' cookies. He wrote about it in a memoir and later joked about it on The Larry King Show. And he testified in 2005 that he had obtained Quaaludes to give to seduce young women.

    "They're never in the mood for us. ... They need chemicals," Cosby told his friends, he wrote in Childhood, his 1991 book.

    Now, prosecutors want those references to drugging females shared with jurors at the entertainer's sex-assault trial in June.

    Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele cited the examples Thursday as he asked a judge to allow them as evidence at the trial. Steele's filing comes two days after Cosby's lawyers sought to exclude Cosby's decade-old testimony about Quaaludes and other women.

    A chapter of his book, called "Or Maybe It's a Spanish Flea," recounts the tale of attempting to secretly sprinkle a chemical on cookies to give to girls at a party when they were 13. The drug: "Spanish Fly, an aphrodisiac so potent that it could have made Lena Horne surrender to Fat Albert," Cosby wrote.

    "My style perhaps could have been smoother, but this, after all, was the first aphrodisiac I had ever pushed," he recalled.

    Cosby suggested the drug was perhaps his only chance with the girls.

    "I understood sex, but I was still too short and thin to expect that any girl, no matter how much she liked my smile, would ever surrender to me anything more than her rotating shoulder blades," he wrote.

    Prosecutors said the book, alongside the 2005 deposition testimony about Quaaludes, proves Cosby's knowledge of date-rape drugs.

    "These excerpts also suggest that he had a willingness and motive to push 'chemicals' to obtain sex from the otherwise unwilling victim," Steele wrote.

    Prosecutors also cited Cosby's reference to Spanish Fly in a 1991 interview with Larry King, when he called it something that every boy "from age 11 on up to death ... will still be searching for," according to a transcript of the interview.

    "It don't make a difference, and the girl would drink it and ... ?" Cosby said to King.

    "And she's yours," King responded.

    "Hello, America!" Cosby replied.

    Bill Cosby's Insurance Company Will Foot the Bill in Sexual Assault Cases | TMZ

    Bill Cosby just protected his pocketbook in a big way, after his insurance company agreed to foot the bill in 3 of his sexual assault cases.

    Cosby's insurance company, AIG, had initially said it would not pay his costs or any civil judgment, on grounds the policy excluded "sexual molestation, misconduct or harassment."

    A judge ruled AIG did indeed have a duty to defend Cosby, which apparently triggered the settlement. The insurance company has agreed to cover his costs in civil cases filed by 3 women -- Tamara Green, Therese Serignese and Linda Traitz.

    AIG agreed to reimburse Cosby $675,000 for attorneys fees and costs he's already incurred, and it appears they will cover future costs as well.

    As for AIG's obligation to pay any judgment the women may eventually get against Cosby, it appears that issue will have to wait until a jury actually rules against the comedian.

    Jury selection for Bill Cosby's trial to begin May 22

    Quote:

    Jury selection for Bill Cosby's sexual-assault trial will begin May 22 in Pittsburgh, a Montgomery County judge ruled Tuesday.

    The entertainer's trial is still scheduled to begin June 5 in Norristown. Jurors selected from Allegheny County will be transported to Montgomery County and sequestered during the trial.

    Judge Steven T. O'Neill has said he plans to screen about 125 jurors per day. The judge denied a request from prosecutors to send questionnaires to as many as 2,000 potential jurors before they report to court.

    O'Neill said lawyers on both sides can submit questions to ask potential jurors. Six alternates will be selected to sit through the trial in addition to 12 jurors.

    Cosby, 79, is charged with aggravated indecent assault. Prosecutors say he drugged and molested former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his home in Cheltenham in 2004.
