Bill Cosby Switches Marty Singer for New Attorney in Sex Abuse Lawsuits

Bill Cosby has retained Christopher Tayback to represent him, replacing Martin Singer as the comedian faces a wave of litigation stemming from allegations that he sexually assaulted multiple women.

Tayback is from Quinn Emanuel’s Los Angeles office.

“We are happy to happy to assist in the transition of the cases to the new attorney,” Singer said. He declined to discuss the circumstances for Cosby’s switch of counsel.

Singer had represented Cosby in some of the litigation, including cases brought by Judy Huth and Janice Dickinson.

Cosby gave a recent deposition in Huth’s civil suit, in which she claims she was sexually assaulted in an incident at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, when Huth was 15. The deposition will be sealed for at least two months. When he was representing Cosby, Singer had called Huth’s allegations “meritless and unsupported.”

Another accuser, Chloe Goins, a model, filed a civil lawsuit in a Los Angeles federal court earlier this month, claiming assault at the Playboy Mansion in 2008. Cosby’s legal team has denied that he was there on the night the incident allegedly took place.

Earlier this month, the Los Angeles District Attorney said Goins’ case is under review after the Los Angeles Police Department turned over the results of criminal investigation.

At least 50 women have accused Cosby of varying degrees of drugging and sexual assault.
