Bill Cosby was reportedly deposed for around 7 hours on Friday in relation to a civil sexual abuse case that has been filed against him.

Summary: Bill Cosby was deposed for 7 hours on Friday in conjunction with the civil sexual abuse case against him.

Thus far, Cosby has not been charged with a crime.

Will Cosby face justice?

Gloria Allred, the attorney who represents several of the plaintiffs, provided a few details about Friday’s deposition, which was held somewhere in the Boston area. Allred could not comment on the nature of Cosby’s testimony, but said, “We’ll be filing motions with the court in connection with the deposition. We’ll also be seeking to take a further deposition of Mr. Cosby at a later date.”

Two of Cosby’s honorary degrees have been withdrawn.



The deposition was related to Judy Huth’s civil suit, which was filed in California. Huth alleges that Cosby forced her to perform a sex act while they were at the Playboy Mansion in 1974. Huth was just 15 years old at the time.

Cosby’s attorneys have insisted that the Huth’s statements are “false and defamatory.” Check out this interview on ForbezDVD.com with Monique Pressley, one of Cosby’s attorneys, as she vehemently argues against many of the allegations that have been brought against Cosby.

Cosby, who played the father figure on “The Cosby Show,” was deposed in a Pennsylvania case that settled out of court close to ten years ago.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Craig Karlan has agreed to seal the depositions in the current California case until he has had a chance to review the transcripts. He will ultimately decide what portions may be viewed by the public. It is expected that Karlan will review the depositions by December 22.

Though no criminal charges have been filed, Cosby is reportedly looking for a criminal defense attorney.

Allred comments, “The court wants to be sure that both parties receive a fair trial, but [Judge Karlan] also recognizes that the public has an interest in the case.”

Huth also alleges that she has repressed psychological injuries from the incident at the Playboy Mansion that have resurfaced within the past three years. Since her injuries appeared recently, a judge ruled that the statute of limitations did not apply to her suit. The statute of limitations is the deadline by which a case must be filed, and is usually a few years after an injury has occurred in these types of cases.

Should there be an exception to statute of limitations requirements for those who suffer from repressed memories?
