And the saga continues.
It seems like former actress Barbara Bowman‘s accusations of Bill Cosby allegedly sexually assaulting her was just the beginning. Since then, several other women have come forward with their own stories of a run-in with the legendary comic. The allegations included a list of potentially 13 women that had been sexually assaulted between the 70’s and mid-2000’s. And it looks like one of the victims from the earlier period of questionable behavior has come forward.
Southern California native Judy Huth claims to have been assaulted by Dr. Cosby at the Playboy Mansion when she was just 15 years of age. The lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Supreme Court states that Huth and a 16-year-old friend met the comedian at an LA area film school shoot, and the two teens were given drinks a few weeks later at a tennis club. Shortly thereafter, they were taken to Playboy Mansion and instructed to alter their ages to 19, if they were asked. Huth then claims that she was led to a private room by Dr. Cosby, and instructed to perform a sexual act on him using his hand. Huth, now 55, cites emotional distress, which she’s discovered have affected her life significantly over the last three years; this allows the suit to be filed under California law.
Since this lawsuit, a second woman has come forward with similar underage abuse claims. The woman told Pittsburgh news station KDKA that she’d been drugged to the point of unconsciousness by Bill Cosby in the 1980’s when she was just 15 years old.
With networks cancelling shows involving the legendary comic, and his recent resignation from Temple’s board of trustees, it seems as though the walls have completely enclosed the beloved television actor. It may be time for Cliff Huxtable to address the claims, or completely fade away. We’ll have to see what happens with the latest development in this never-ending saga.
