Bill Cosby Sued Over Alleged 2008 Sexual Assault

Chloe Goins, a model who has accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault at the Playboy Mansion in 2008, filed a civil lawsuit in a Los Angeles federal court on Tuesday.

The lawsuit is the latest litigation against the comedian, and her complaint identifies 40 other women who have come forward to accuse Cosby of assaulting them.

She claims that after being introduced to Cosby by Hugh Hefner, Cosby put some type of narcotic in her drink without her knowledge. She contends that she blacked out, and awoke to find that her clothes had been removed, and her breasts were wet and sticky, “as if someone had been licking them.” Cosby was biting on one of her toes “as he crouched at the end of the bed,” according to the lawsuit.

Cosby’s attorney, Martin Singer, did not immediately return an email for comment. In January, he denied Goins’ allegations, contending that they have documentary evidence showing that Cosby was in New York on the night the alleged assault took place.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages, but cites loss of income, medical and psychological expenses and emotional distress.

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