Bill Cosby‘s lawyers on Tuesday filed court papers claiming that the actor-comedian’s reputation has been damaged by news media accounts that inaccurately portray him as having used sedatives to drug women so that he could engage in nonconsensual sex, according to The New York Times.
In what appears to be Cosby’s first public defense after parts of his deposition in a 2005 lawsuit were released this month, his lawyers say he actually did not drug women or have sex with them without consent. He merely “admitted to nothing more than being one of the many people who introduced Quaaludes into their consensual sex life in the 1970s,” the report says.
From The New York Times:
“Quaaludes were a highly popular recreational drug in the 1970s, labeled in slang as ‘disco biscuits,’ and known for their capacity to increase sexual arousal,” the court filing said.
The lawyers cited several news articles that they contended had misconstrued Mr. Cosby’s testimony, and they blamed the woman who had accused him of drugging and molesting her in 2005, Andrea Constand, a Temple University basketball manager. The case was settled in 2006, and the parties agreed to keep documents from the case confidential as part of the settlement…
The comments came in a motion filed in United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to block the further release of his full deposition, which became available last week from the court reporting service that transcribed it a decade ago.
The court filings accuse Constand of trying to “smear” Cosby. Do you agree? Sound off in the comments.
