Lawyer: A 2nd Deposition Of Cosby Will Be Sought

This article is more than 3 years old.

After Bill Cosby gave a deposition in Boston Friday, the lawyer of a woman who has accused Cosby of rape says she will seek a second deposition.

The details of the seven hour court-ordered deposition of Cosby will remain sealed for at least the next two months.

At a short press conference Saturday morning, Attorney Gloria Allred says her client, Judy Huth, was not present at Cosby's deposition. Huth will be deposed on Thursday.

A California judge will hear motions on the protective order on the depositions at a hearing that is already scheduled for Dec. 22 — effectively deciding which parts of the sworn testimony from both Cosby and Huth can be released to the public.

Huth claims that Cosby forcibly raped her in the 1970s at the Playboy Mansion when she was 15 years old.

Cosby's attorneys have called Huth's lawsuit frivolous — saying that Huth's former attorney once attempted to extort Cosby.

On Friday in Springfield, a federal judge refused to dismiss a defamation lawsuit brought by three women against the 78-year-old comedian.

The ruling will allow the lawsuit to go forward. The suit claims that Cosby's representatives damaged the reputations of the three women by denying their allegations using disparaging language. Cosby's attorneys say the remarks were personal opinions and protected by the First Amendment.
