Bill Cosby Countersues 7 of His Accusers
Famed comedian Bill Cosby is suing 7 of almost 50 women who have accused him of sexual assault.
According to USA Today, Cosby’s attorney says he “neither drugged nor sexually assaulted the defendants and that each defendant has maliciously and knowingly published multiple false statements and accusations from Fall 2014 through the current day in an effort to cause damage to Mr. Cosby’s reputation…”
The suit, which was filed in federal court, is aimed at Tamara Green, Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis and Angela Leslie–all from Massachusetts.
The seven women joined together in a defamation suit against Cosby in the state where he resides. The suit was originally filed last year by three of Cosby’s accusers.
