Bill Cosby's legal issues are only getting worse!
As we reported earlier this year, a judge ruled that the comedian CANNOT dismiss a sexual assault lawsuit filed by Judy Huth, who claims that the actor committed the crime against her when she was just 15-years-old.
Fast forward to now, the case is moving forward.
On Wednesday, the Cosby star's request to review the civil suit was denied by the California Supreme Court.
This means that the alleged victim and her lawyer Gloria Allred can now proceed with litigation.
In case you didn't know, Huth claims the thespian molested her in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion in 1974. She asserts that the performer forced the then teenager to perform a "sex act on [him] without her consent."
The ordeal has caused her "severe and extreme emotional distress."
Allred not only calls this a "major victory", she hopes to have the deposition within the next month.
Cosby maintains his innocence.
We just hope justice will be brought down on those responsible.
