Disgraced comedian Bill Cosby is being sued for allegedly subjecting a 15-year-old girl to sexual assault, according to recent documents obtained by popular gossip website TMZ. The woman claims the abuse went down in 1974, and took place in the Playboy Mansion.
The documents in question detail 55-year-old Judy Huth’s claims, a situation she says stemmed from her and her friend met the 77-year-old on a Los Angeles park movie set. He reportedly extended the pair an invite to join him at his tennis club one week later, an offer the girls accepted. When they arrived, Huth alleges that Cosby served them alcohol without any qualms regarding their age whatsoever, and instructed them to consume a beer each time he was successful at one of the billiards game the three was playing. Following this, the woman claims that the comedian then proceeded to bring the girls to the Playboy mansion, upon which time he instructed them to report their age as 19 if any authorities figures questioned them regarding whether they were allowed to be present at such an establishment.
The claimant in question says that she then was led into a bedroom with Cosby, upon which time said sexual harassment began. The comedian then allegedly began attempting to force unwanted actions on the girl, both via her body and his. Although she was clearly unwilling to participate in said circumstances, Huth says that the man continued his actions regardless of her blatant levels of discomfort. She does not say exactly how far the situation went or how it came to an end, but goes on to say that she was both emotionally and psychologically damaged to the extreme from Cosby’s actions. When asked why she waited so long to come forward with her story, the woman claims that she was so scarred mentally that she has only just connected her psychological issues with what allegedly went down that night.
The accusations towards Cosby have been extremely frequent in the past month, with multiple women coming out of the shadows and stating they were subject to sexual abuse at the comedian’s hands several decades ago. The most common denominator with these women seems to lie with the fact that they were all aspiring entertainment newcomers at the time, and say Cosby offered to give them a kind of leg up in the industry if they agreed to go along with his sexual expectations. Actress Louisa Moritz (best known for her role in One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest) has testified that Cosby essentially threatened her career following his molestation of her person, asking her if she wanted to ruin all of his plans for her future by telling the public what had just gone done, this he reportedly said shortly before leaving the dressing room he violated her in prior to an appearance on Johnny Carson’s version of The Tonight Show. Although she admitted that the statute of limitations had run out on the case due to the several decades having passed, Moritz says she plans to file a civil lawsuit against the comedian due to both other women having come forward and also based on the principle of the matter.
It remains to be seen whether or not the recent lawsuit against Bill Cosby will amount to anything. The comedian could reportedly not be reached for commentary on the matter.
