On April 14, , Cosby's lawyers filed a motion to dismiss Huth's lawsuit claiming that she changed her timeline regarding her "delayed discovery" of psychological injury or illness related to the alleged abuse.
Allred said "We are very happy that the Court agreed and we will continue to vigorously fight for a just result for our client.
On September 20, it was revealed that one of the thirteen prosecution witnesses in the criminal trial was alleged Cosby victim Margie Shapiro.
Allred filed a motion in the Huth civil case to have the deposition of Shapiro postponed until after the criminal trial.
Allred stated she believed the defense would try to use the deposition against Shapiro to find discrepancies in the upcoming trial. Cosby attorney Angela Agrusa opposed this motion.
On October 6, , Goins filed a lawsuit against Cosby. In her complaint, she stated that Cosby had assaulted her, causing her to suffer "emotional distress", "psychiatric trauma", and impairment of her education.
Goins's lawyer, Spencer Kuvin, said his client's number-one priority was that the truth come out and Cosby be criminally prosecuted. Singer stated he would provide documentary evidence to the LAPD that established Cosby was in New York on August 9, , the date of the alleged incident.
In February , Goins dismissed her lawsuit without prejudice. Hill claims that Cosby gave her a bit part on television, funded her college education and pledged to assist her career, all while sporadically sexually abusing her from to In October , she filed a defamation suit against Cosby, Singer and Camille Cosby, alleging defamation, false light , and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
The U. District Court dismissed the suit "with prejudice" in January , meaning the suit cannot be re-filed. Judge Arthur Schwab decided that statements made by Cosby and his attorneys were opinions protected by the First Amendment.
Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit. On November 9, , Ruehli filed a defamation lawsuit against Cosby for denying her claims of rape.
Ruehli's allegations against Cosby date back the furthest, with claims that he assaulted her in She claimed Cosby's vehement denials leveled against the numerous accusers in were grounds for defamation.
Her complaint states, in part, "It is one thing for an accused sexual assailant to remain silent and allow the legal process, or public opinion, to run its course, but it is quite another for him to unleash his agents to deny that he attacked the plaintiff and other women, to invite others to republish his statements, and to brand them as unreliable liars.
Sullivan in , which required a higher standard to show the intent of malice towards a public figure to qualify as defamatory, and that given that her lawsuit, McKee was a limited public figure.
In January , The U. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit refused to rehear her case in a full court hearing.
On November 16, , it was reported that accusers Green and Bowman filed a joint lawsuit against John Schmitt, one of Bill Cosby's lawyers.
In November , Schmitt released a statement reading, "Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr.
Cosby have resurfaced. The fact they are being repeated does not make them true. Green and Bowman contend that this widely circulated statement amounted to branding them as liars, resulting in emotional distress and other damages.
But the insurer has also filed lawsuits related to both cases, aiming for declaratory relief that it is not responsible.
Cosby's homeowners insurance does cover him for "personal injury", which is defined in his policy as including "bodily injury"; "shock, emotional distress, mental injury"; "invasion of privacy"; and "defamation, libel, or slander".
However, the policy contains an exclusion for "sexual, physical or mental abuse", setting the stage for a potentially novel legal battle over whether a defamation claim about the denial of sexual abuse is covered.
Cosby's attorneys argued that AIG was acting against Cosby's best interests and that fighting both the lawsuits from the accusers as well as from his insurance company would drain his resources.
On October 9, , AIG filed a response, calling Cosby's motion "bizarre and possibly unique in the entire history of American jurisprudence", criticizing Cosby's lawyers for referencing irrelevant case law from other states, and saying that if the court sided with Cosby, it "would amount to a wholesale abandonment of this Court's jurisdiction, all for no apparent reason.
In her opinion, O'Connell looked at the "arising out of" exclusion noted above and declares the meaning is ambiguous.
The sexual misconduct exclusion could reasonably be read to require that Dickinson's claims merely relate to sexual misconduct, or that Dickinson's claims be proximately caused by the sexual misconduct", she wrote.
Since ambiguous terms are interpreted in favor of finding coverage, Cosby prevailed. O'Connell gave a second independent reason for finding in Cosby's favor.
She looked at the Dickinson complaint and concluded that there are allegations independent of sexual misconduct.
Similarly, the Dickinson Complaint alleges that Defendant's statements contain numerous implications about Dickinson, including the implication that 'Dickinson has copied the claims made publicly by other women against Defendant' and 'the implication that Ms.
Dickinson's rape disclosure is a lie and that therefore she is a liar'", she wrote. As courts impose coverage in a "mixed" action, Cosby prevailed here as well but this ruling does not apply to the Massachusetts case, where AIG and Cosby are still fighting to determine who is liable.
Judge, Mark G. This judge, also responsible for the Green et al. Allred participated in a protest outside of the venue, but had also purchased a ticket to the show.
Nevertheless, local police officers told her she would be arrested for trespassing if she entered the theater. Allred said Cosby's team coordinated with security and police to deny entry to individuals they had placed on a list of "agitators".
Cobb-Marietta Coliseum is the name of the company that organized the show, and Taormina is its managing director. The police officers are employed by Cobb County.
She sought a court order to prohibit what she calls the venue's "censorship policy on admissions". On September 8, , Allred reached a settlement with the defense.
Constand is being represented by her original Constand vs Cosby attorney Dolores Troiani. Constand's lawyer now wants McMonagle to detail any ties between his office and Castor, including phone records and documents.
She wants Cosby to do the same. On December 21, , Cosby sued supermodel Beverly Johnson for defamation,  claiming that she told a false story in a Vanity Fair article.
Cosby's lawsuit accuses Johnson of lying about the incident in which she says Cosby spiked a cup of cappuccino with an unknown drug.
No sexual contact by Cosby was alleged in Johnson's version of the event. Allegedly, she also repeated the story in subsequent interviews and in her memoirs, released on August 25, Cosby's lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and an injunction preventing the model from repeating her claims and requests they be removed from Johnson's memoir, which was released in August.
On February 19, , Cosby filed a motion to dismiss his lawsuit against Johnson. His attorney Monique Pressley wrote in an email that Cosby made the move to focus on his defense in a criminal case in Pennsylvania.
Pressley wrote that Cosby plans to re-file the case against Johnson before the statute of limitations expires. On February 1, , Cosby filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Andrea Constand, her mother Gianna Constand, her current lawyer Dolores Troiani, her former lawyer Bebe Kivitz and the publisher of the National Enquirer.
The lawsuit seeks full repayment plus interest on "the substantial financial benefit". The filing states "Despite being expressly prohibited from disclosing such information to anyone, Andrea Constand volunteered to participate and disclosed such information to the district attorney and others.
Prosecutors introduced a copy of the agreement, redacted to hide all but a single sentence, at Cosby's pretrial hearing this month. That line read: "Constand agrees that she will not initiate any criminal complaint against Cosby arising from the underlying facts of this case.
On July 28, , Cosby filed a motion to dismiss his entire lawsuit against all the defendants. In his suit he claims that Constand conspired with Steele to help him win the election so Cosby could be prosecuted.
Constand's attorney, Jeffrey McCarron, responded by saying "If his described basis is the reason for the lawsuit, then we do not expect it will last very long.
Columnist Norm Clarke recalled an encounter with Cosby in the s in Denver, where the comedian embraced a crowd of adoring fans but treated Clarke with contempt.
Clarke wrote: "Last week, as allegations of sexual assault mounted against Cosby, I found myself wondering why a man so beloved, here and around the globe, who had won over everyone from school kids to media, kept a Denver newspaperman at bay.
So what if he didn't want to talk to another journalist? But now I tend to think something else may have been involved.
Clarke related the experience of Donna Tagliaferri, who described "a terrifying incident after meeting Cosby in the mids through tennis" when she was in her early 20s.
After playing tennis with Cosby a number of times, he invited her on a dinner date and then invited her up to his hotel room.
Tagliaferri had a girlfriend accompany them. After showing them around the penthouse, "things changed dramatically and quickly.
He made it clear to me in a very aggressive way what his intentions were. He chillingly said to me, 'I will have you. My first thought was, 'No you will not.
What I do know is his words were an assault to me never to be forgotten. And the betrayal of a friendship was staggering.
Dana Kennedy, a journalist and correspondent, profiled Cosby for the Associated Press AP in , noting that even though Cosby was at the height of his success and did not have any measurably negative publicity, he went on at length about "why he mistrusts the press", saying he likes to "control" his interviews.
The AP piece reflected more on how uncomfortable the interview was than the substance of the interview itself. In , Kennedy recalled that after the critical AP piece ran, Cosby sent her a cryptic package with a withered piece of fruit wrapped up in a paper towel.
She noted that despite her interviews with some of the most notorious celebrities, it was Cosby—during the time of his highest popularity—who stood out as having a "scary" persona, recalling the mysterious package as something that "has always given" her "the creeps".
It was her remembrance of "how intimidating and menacing" Cosby was during that experience that led her to believe the stories of the women who were accusing Cosby.
Actor Malcolm-Jamal Warner , who played Cosby's son Theo on The Cosby Show , stated, when asked about Cosby's state of mind since Cosby was charged with sexual assault on December 30, that he was reluctant to divulge details of their personal conversations.
That part I really don't feel comfortable talking about because we've always had a close personal relationship," Warner said. Our personal conversations I tend to keep personal.
In , Camille Cosby , who married Cosby in when she was 19, released a statement supporting her husband, describing him as a victim of unvetted accusations: "The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work.
He is a kind man In a January Time magazine article about why black women should stop defending Cosby, actress Phylicia Rashad is quoted defending him: "What you're seeing is the destruction of a legacy.
And I think it's orchestrated. I don't know why or who's doing it, but it's the legacy. And it's a legacy that is so important to the culture.
In a July USA Today article about how the actors of The Cosby Show responded to the allegations, Keshia Knight Pulliam of the cast stated "All I can speak to is the man I know and I love the fact that he has been such an example [and] you can't take away from the great that he has done, the millions and millions of dollars he has given back to colleges and education, and just what he did with the Cosby Show and how groundbreaking that was.
The Cosbys, we were the first family that no matter what race, religion, you saw yourself in", further addressing the charges against Cosby. I don't have that story to tell.
In September , comedian Damon Wayans attacked the accusers, calling them "un-rape-able", and defended Cosby by stating "It's a money hustle.
In December , actor and comedian Eddie Griffin suggested that Cosby was the victim of a conspiracy to destroy his image and that several other prominent African-American men had been victims of similar conspiracies.
Chicago Tribune columnist Clarence Page writes that the most popular conspiracy theory regarding the allegations involves Cosby being "[punished] by the powers-that-be for [his] attempts to buy NBC in the s".
Page wrote that the conspiracy doesn't explain why the conspirators waited so long to bring forth the accusations, with the scandal unfolding many years after Cosby abandoned the purchase.
Dick Gregory was a supporter of this theory. Two notable people who previously defended Cosby and believed in his innocence, changed their minds. American actress and talk show host Whoopi Goldberg and Joseph C.
Phillips a Cosby Show regular for three years each made public statements on July 15, Goldberg said "If this is to be tried in the court of public opinion, I got to say all of the information that's out there kind of points to guilt.
Either speak up or shut up. Bush in July There's no precedent for revoking a medal. We don't have that mechanism. And, as you know, I tend to make it a policy not to comment on the specifics of cases where there might still be, if not criminal, then civil, issues involved.
And I think this country, any civilized country, should have no tolerance for rape. After Tamara Green, one of the witnesses in Andrea Constand's case, re-told her story to Newsweek in February , Cosby's publicist David Brokaw issued a statement at the time calling Green's story a "year discredited accusation that proved to be nothing at the time, and is still nothing.
When Dickinson came forward in November to accuse Cosby of raping her in , Singer issued a denial on behalf of Cosby, saying, "Janice Dickinson's story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a lie.
Around the time of these interviews, Cosby's lawyers began sending sharply worded letters to publications that wrote about the sexual assault allegations, threatening them with legal action and using phrases like "proceed at your own peril" if they published certain stories.
In November , one of Cosby's lawyers, John Schmitt, released a statement reading, "Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr.
Subsequent to his arraignment on three felony charges based on the Constand case, Cosby tweeted the following message on December 30, , using his Twitter account: "Friends and fans, Thank You [ sic ].
Cosby was asked directly about Buress's comments and the resulting fallout in two November interviews, which were originally intended to be about a new art exhibit at the Smithsonian that featured his private collection of African American art.
Cosby, but there have been serious allegations raised about you in recent days. When Zongker failed to guarantee this request, Cosby turned to his off-camera publicist David Brokaw and told him to get on the phone with Zongker's editors "immediately".
When the interview was first released on November 10, the Buress questions had indeed been omitted. However, after the allegations continued to gain new traction, including a new accusation from Janice Dickinson, the AP decided to release footage of the full exchange on November In a November 21, , Florida Today interview, Cosby stated: "I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos.
People should fact check. People shouldn't have to go through that and shouldn't answer to innuendos. Numerous institutions, colleges, universities, businesses, and broadcast networks have severed ties with Cosby as a result of the allegations.

It is estimated that the comedian received more than 60 honorary degrees between and ,  many of which were conferred after Cosby admitted to funneling money to mistress Shawn Upshaw in the s, was accused of sexually assaulting Lachele Covington in , and faced a sexual abuse lawsuit in by Andrea Constand with 13 other alleged victims prepared to come forward.
Nevertheless, Cosby continued to collect honorary degrees, up until Boston University granted the honor to him in May However, as the Cosby controversy continued to unfold, there was an increasing movement to draw attention to sexual violence on college campuses, with growing criticism that the bureaucracy of higher education led to a culture where sexual crimes were not taken seriously.
New York magazine referred to the movement in as a "revolution against campus sexual assault". When announcing their condemnation of Cosby, many universities used the opportunity to voice strong no-tolerance policies of sexual violence of any kind.
Brown University said Cosby's alleged actions were "particularly troubling as our university community continues to confront the very real challenges of sexual violence on our campus and in society at large.
After more than 20 institutions rescinded Cosby's degrees, several others refused to do so, often citing their policy never to rescind anyone's degree for any reason.
Most of these schools nevertheless included statements abhorring Cosby's conduct. University of Pennsylvania received some of the greatest backlash when it announced it would not rescind Cosby's honorary degree because of university policy.
It made no comment to the fact that Penn previously had rescinded two other honorary degrees. In November , colleges and universities with ties to Cosby began removing their affiliations with him.

It ran until January 24, On July 20, , it was announced that Cosby would no longer appear in the upcoming documentary Painted Down , about the history of African American stuntmen in film and television.
Cosby is credited with helping to create the Black Stuntmen's Association in Producer Nonie Robinson claimed, "We were the last project standing behind him," but said that pulling him from the documentary was "the right thing to do in light of the recent court deposition being made public.

The restaurant's owners stated the makeover had nothing to do with the allegations against the comedian. Many academic institutions have rescinded honorary degrees they awarded to Cosby.
Most of them cited Cosby's deposition. Fordham University rescinded Cosby's honorary degree, making it the university's first in history.
Cosby's now-public court depositions that confirm many of the allegations made against him by numerous women" and that "Mr. Cosby was willing to drug and rape women for his sexual gratification, and further damage those same women's reputations and careers to obscure his guilt, hurt not only his victims, but all women, and is beyond the pale.
Schmitt sent a letter to Fordham University calling its statement "so irresponsible as to shock the conscience", and saying "The mischaracterization of Mr.
Cosby's testimony is so egregious that one can only conclude that it was written by one either unfamiliar with the testimony or determined deliberately to misrepresent Mr.
Cosby's words. A number of universities and educational institutions emphasized that they conferred honorary degrees on Cosby based on information known at the time of the award, and while some said they deplored recent revelations about Cosby's conduct, they lacked a policy or mechanism for revoking the honor.

Both Ferrier and Thomas, who were alleged victims of Cosby, spoke at the hearing before the decision was made the same day.

For example, they could reopen the case if multiple victims come forward with similar allegations or if new written evidence is discovered.
Senate Bill was inspired by high-profile rape cases, including the one involving Brenda Tracy, who reported being raped by four football players in Corvallis in , and the one involving Cosby.
Under the bill, new victims coming forward could be used as evidence to reopen a case, said Aaron Knott, the legislative director for Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum.

In light of the allegations of drug-assisted sexual assaults, Cosby's history of jokes about " Spanish Fly " has come under increased scrutiny. It has been described as coming back "to haunt him".
In his biographical comedy album It's True! It's True! The joke begins with a year-old Cosby first hearing of the substance and ends with an adult Cosby excitedly asking about getting Spanish Fly while in Spain, only to be disappointed when a local cab driver asks him for "American Fly".

On January 8, , in a stand-up routine by Cosby at Budweiser Gardens in London, Ontario, he quipped "You have to be careful about drinking around me" to a woman in the front row who reportedly was exiting to get a beverage and offered to grab him one.
MSNBC and National Post journalists interpreted Cosby's joke as a reference to the drugging and sexual assault allegations against him.

When asked in his deposition whom he wished to keep the affair from, Cosby replied "Mrs. Among the women identified in receipts that Scotti preserved for more than 20 years were Shawn Thompson, Cosby's admitted mistress who later accused him of fathering her child, and Angela Leslie, who claimed Cosby made unwanted sexual advances toward her in the early s.
