Bill Cosby to Face Second Deposition in California Civil Suit

A Los Angeles Country Superior Court judge has ordered Bill Cosby to face a second deposition in a civil lawsuit brought against him by Judy Huth.

The tentative ruling came in a hearing on Tuesday. Craig F. Karlan said that, while he is allowed to object to question from lawyers for Huth, he must appear for a half-day deposition by Feb. 29. Huth has accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, when she was 15 years old.

Huth filed the lawsuit against Cosby in late 2014 as sexual assault allegations against the comedian resurfaced. In October, Cosby was deposed in the case, and Huth’s lawyers sought another deposition.

Earlier on Tuesday, another Cosby accuser, model Chloe Goins, dropped her lawsuit against him, in which she claimed that he sexually assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008. There is no explanation of why Goins dropped her suit in federal court records.

Dozens of women have come out against Cosby with allegations of sexual assault, with some taking legal action. Cosby’s lawyers have denied the allegations, and in some cases filed defamation suits against the accusers.

As ruling were made in Los Angeles, Cosby attended a pre-trial hearing in Montogomery County in Philadelphia, regarding an alleged 2004 sexual assault.
