Bill Cosby accused of molesting 15-year-old in new lawsuit – Boston Herald
Bill Cosby is being sued by a woman who claims he molested her when she was 15 years old.
Judy Huth, now 55, alleges in her lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles that Cosby assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974 after having met him on a movie set.
According to the suit, Huth and a friend (age 16 at the time) accepted Cosby’s invitation to meet him at a tennis club a week later, where he insisted that they consume alcoholic beverages every time he won a game of pool. He then allegedly took the girls to the Playboy Mansion, where Cosby “proceeded to sexually molest [Huth] by attempting to put his hand down her pants, then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent.”
Huth is suing Cosby for “severe and extreme emotional distress” and is seeking punitive damages.
Her case against Cosby is the latest in a string of sexual assault allegations against the 77-year-old comedian, whose lawyer has vehemently denied the charges.
“Over and over again, we have refuted these new unsubstantiated stories with documentary evidence, only to have a new uncorroborated story crop up out of the woodwork,” attorney Martin Singer said. “When will it end? It is long past time for this media vilification of Mr. Cosby to stop.”
On Monday, Cosby resigned from the Board of Trustees at Temple University.
“I have always wanted to do what would be in the best interests of the university and its students,” he said in a statement.
