The Latest: Judge orders 2nd deposition for Cosby in lawsuit
SANTA MONICA, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on legal action involving Bill Cosby (all times local):
A judge has ordered Bill Cosby to undergo another deposition in a lawsuit alleging the comedian sexually abused a woman when she was underage.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Craig D. Karlan ruled Tuesday that Cosby must appear for another half-day deposition, even if he objects to questions from lawyers for the woman.
Judy Huth sued Cosby in late 2014, claiming he forced her to perform a sex act on him at the Playboy Mansion around 1974 when she was 15.
Cosby was deposed in the case in October. Huth’s lawyers sought another deposition to get Cosby to answer certain questions.
Details about the questions or Cosby’s answers during the October session remain under seal.
A model has dropped her lawsuit accusing Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually abusing her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008.
Federal court records show Chloe Goins dismissed her lawsuit on Tuesday without explanation.
Her filing in Los Angeles was done in a way that would allow it to be refiled at a later date.
Prosecutors in Los Angeles decided last month not to file criminal charges against Cosby over her claims, noting that some details could not be corroborated.
Goins sued Cosby in October. Cosby had not yet responded to the case.
His previous lawyer denied that Cosby was in Los Angeles at the time Goins said she was abused.
Attorneys for Cosby and Goins did not immediately return email messages.
