The group of women Cosby allegedly assaulted functions nearly as a longitudinal study-both for how an individual woman, on her own, deals with such trauma over the decades and for how the culture at large has grappled with rape over the same time period. Each side is accusing the other of breaking the agreement’s confidentiality clause through public comments, online posts and court filings.
Says Allred: “Mr. Cosby may be praying for divine intervention to halt his deposition, but he will soon have to give his testimony in Ms. Huth’s case, and we are looking forward to that day”. She thought she was taking an herbal medication. “I’m not making conclusions-and you know that I can’t-about whether someone is lying or not”, she added. Constand and her lawyers have said they had nothing to do with the transcript’s release. She considered Cosby to be a friend and mentor.
The New York magazine cover story is the largest expose yet of alleged abuse from almost 50 women who have publicly accused Cosby of assault from the 1960s to 1996 across the United States.
Lawyer Dolores Troiani pointed to the fact that if Cosby was really such a good “reader” of people, he perhaps should have realized that his client, Constand, was a lesbian.
She argued that Cosby has hired a team of lawyers, agents and publicists to attack accusers and media reports, while Constand, now a physical therapist in the Canadian province of Ontario, has been forced to remain silent.
The latest addition to Cosby’s publicity team is Monique Pressley, a lawyer, ordained minister and motivational speaker who made a round of television appearances this month defending Cosby.
But Cosby admitted in court filings to offering Quaaludes to women with whom he wanted to have sex.
‘But what an odd thing, that a black man who slept with so very many white women chose to take my possible lesbianism away from our one meeting, rather than the message I tried to get across with “Society’s Child”.
“In his narcississtic view of the world, Defendant believes that Plaintiff’s every tweet must be about him”, the documents read. “The tweets do not include any hash tags and were sent during the time period that there was extensive publicity about gay marriage”.
