*One of the women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault is circumventing her statute of limitations by suing him for denying that he ever touched her.
Tamara Green claims Cosby drugged her during a lunch date in the early 70s, then groped her at her apartment. Green first made the claim in 2005 on “Today” and then again to Newsweek and the Washington Post this year.
Green, a retired attorney, filed a defamation lawsuit against Cosby in Massachusetts because she says repeated denials from Cosby’s publicist have branded her a liar. As a result, Green says she’s been ridiculed in her private life and professionally.
Green seems to have found a loophole to drag Cosby into court. Almost all the allegations against him are more than 40 years old … so it’s highly unlikely he’d face criminal charges. But his denials are more recent, so Green’s suit has a shot of getting to court.
