Trial date set for California suit against Cosby

Trial date set for California suit against Cosby

She spoke to reporters after a Los Angeles Superior Court hearing on Tuesday (27Jun17), when Judge Craig Kaplan set 30 July, 2018 as a tentative date for the start of a sexual assault civil trial against the funnyman.

Huth alleges that, when she was 15 in the 1970s, Cosby took her to magazine empire mogul Hugh Hefner's Playboy Mansion and sexually abused her.

A Pennsylvania jury failed to reach a verdict earlier this month on charges that Cosby drugged and sexually assaulted Andrea Constand in 2004.

In the California case, a woman claims she was assaulted by Cosby at the Playboy Mansion more than 40 years ago when she was 15.

The stage for Bill Cosby's next trial shifts to California.

"He does not take lightly these criminal charges", she said. Cosby has given a sealed deposition in the case.

"Mr. Cosby wants to get back to work", Andrew Wyatt said on "Good Day Alabama".

News about a second Cosby deposition in the Huth case, which is being called rare, is also forthcoming.

On Twitter on Tuesday, Cosby said any information about public plans "will be given at the appropriate time".

There was immediate backlash from the announcement of Cosby's tour last week, when Cosby's team indicated that he would be discussing sexual assault during the tour.

Cosby's legal team declared victory after the mistrial and then his representatives announced the town hall tour.

Judy Huth appears at a press conference with attorney Gloria Allred, not shown, outside the Los Angeles Police Department's Wilshire Division station Friday Dec. 5, 2014.

Bill Cosby's latest criminal trial in Pennsylvania may have recently ended in a mistrial, but Cosby might not be done facing court cases.

The retrial in Pennsylvania isn't the only pending legal action that Cosby faces. Cosby said the encounter was consensual. Cosby has denied any wrongdoing. Reacting to these proposed town halls, one Cosby accuser likened the idea to "Jeffrey Dahmer hosting a town hall meeting on the joy of cooking". That case received a preliminary court date of July 2018.

But even setting those charges aside - which we don't - there is ample damning evidence in his own words that Cosby is neither a victim nor equipped to advise others about their sexual behavior. "There's a higher burden of proof in a criminal case than there is in a civil case", Allred said.
