On Monday, it was revealed that Andrea Constand filed a defamation lawsuit against the former Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. — who happened to be the prosecutor that decided to NOT press charges against Bill Cosby back in 2005.
In case you forgot, Miz Constand is the woman whose sexual assault and drugging accusation inspired more than 50 other women to come forward about their reportedly troubling experiences with the TV icon.
The 42-year-old's lawyer, Dolores Troiani, shared that her client has decided to move forward with this legal matter as she feels that Castor made her collateral in forwarding his own political aspirations and has defamed her name in the press. Tragic.
Miz Troiani noted:
"She's devastated. It's bad enough to go through this once but to have it happen to her twice?"
We can't even imagine how hard this whole ordeal has been.
Allegedly, the funnyman assaulted Andrea back in January 2004 and reported the incident to the authorities a year later. Unfortunately, a month later, Castor decided that there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute the Emmy winner.
Cosby and his alleged victim eventually settled the issue out of court in 2006.
Though, we're not entirely shocked that Andrea' legal team is going after the attorney since they previously demanded a public apology for a series of comments he made in the The Philadelphia Inquirer, and on Twitter and Facebook.
