Attorneys representing the embattled comedian filed defamation suits against Tamara Green, Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis, and Angela Leslie for:
[T]heir malicious, opportunistic, false, and defamatory accusations of sexual misconduct against him.”
Clearly this is an effort to turn the tables.
Bill’s attorney, Monique Pressley, called these women’s accusations of sexual harassment:
intentional campaign to assassinate his character for their own financial gain…
Mr. Cosby states plainly that he neither drugged nor sexually assaulted the defendants.”
Furthermore, she alleges that these accusations have caused “substantial injury” to both his reputation and business contacts. That’s the truth.
I think the issue here is that there are SO many women accusing the comedian of sexual assault. It’s hard to believe that all of them are lying, especially since Bill reportedly admitted to giving drugs to one woman in order to have sex with her in a deposition. Yet what evidence do any of the accusers have after all these years besides multiple accusations? I guess that gives Bill Cosby grounds to sue in return. It’s clear he’s not going down without a fight. As I said, something tells me the people who are really going to make money off this are the lawyers.
