Monique Pressley Exits Bill Cosby’s Legal Team
Just over two months ago, actor-comedian Bill Cosby gave his former main attorney the boot. Now, it appears as if he’s lost another power player.
Monique Pressley now joins Christopher Tayback as the latest attorney to depart from Cosby’s legal team.
The Washington, D.C.-based attorney announced in court documents that she will no longer be representing the legendary comedian after doing so for more than a year. Andrew Wyatt, Cosby’s spokesperson, also confirmed that Pressley will not be working with him moving forward.
Pressley did not state the reason for her departure and has not responded to any media requests for comment.
Cosby’s team now consist of Angela Agrusa, director of litigation for Liner LLP, and Brian McMonagle, a Pennsylvania-based attorney.
During Cosby’s highly publicized legal debacles, Pressley served as his primary liaison to the public. The outspoken legal representative often appeared on various media outlets, where she defended Cosby regarding outrageous claims made against him.
The 79-year-old is currently facing criminal charges in Pennsylvania for the sexual assault of his former mentee, Andrea Constand, in 2004 and has unsuccessfully attempted to derail the ongoing case.
He’s also battling several accusations of assault and defamation from more than fifty women across the country.
