*Another day another Bill Cosby accuser comes forward.
You have to wonder if all of these accusations are true and some are not. Well, here comes another one. And if we’re not mistaken, this complaint marks the first time someone has gone to court since the sexual-assault allegations resurfaced this year.
The most recent accusation comes from a 55-year-old woman named Judy Huth. In a suit filed against Cosby in LA County Superior Court on Tuesday, Huth is claiming sexual battery and infliction of emotional distress for allegedly molesting her in a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion when she was 15 years old.
According to the complaint, Huth and a friend, who was 16 at the time, met Cosby at an outdoor film set at a park in Riverside County in 1974 and accepted an invitation to socialize with him at a tennis club the following week. When they got together, the lawsuit alleges, they played billiards and Cosby served them alcoholic beverages.
“Under the terms of Cosby’s game, plaintiff was required to consume a beer every time Cosby won a game,” the suit alleges. After the two girls consumed “multiple alcoholic beverages,” Cosby allegedly told them he had a surprise for them “and led them to another house which turned out to be the Playboy Mansion.”
He told the girls they should say they were 19 if they were asked, according to the lawsuit.
While at the mansion, Huth said she needed to use the bathroom. Cosby, who was 37 at the time, allegedly showed her to a bathroom inside a bedroom suite near the mansion’s game room.
“When Plaintiff emerged from the bathroom, she found Cosby sitting on the bed,” the suit states. “He asked her to sit beside him. He then proceeded to sexually molest her by attempting to put his hand down her pants, and then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent.”
Huth is now saying she only recently recalled the incident which she realized was the cause of “mental anguish” and “significant problems throughout her life.” She is requesting a jury trial and is seeking an unlimited amount of compensatory damages.
As of this posting no one from Cosby’s camp has responded to the lawsuit or inquiries from the media. NBC News says Playboy also hasn’t responded to their request for a comment.
