One Of The Defamation Lawsuits Against Bill Cosby Just Got Thrown Out!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersSexBill CosbyControversy

Find out why the judge sided with Bill Cosby.

And Bill Cosby gets ANOTHER small legal victory.

A judge recently tossed out one of the defamation lawsuits against the scandalized star. In 2014, Renita Hill claimed the comedian had drugged and sexually assaulted her in the '80s.

And this past October, she filed a legal complaint against him in Pennsylvania.

In the docs, the 48-year-old said the actor and his lawyers made her seem like a "liar" and "extortionist" while responding to her allegations.

However, the judge believed that the statements made by the 78-year-old's team were protected by the First Amendment, and that they were just generalizations about all of his accusers, so they weren't specifically defamatory towards Renita.

The judge dismissed the suit with prejudice, meaning Bill's alleged victim can't alter the suit and re-file it. However, her lawyers are planning on appealing the decision.

A Judge Rules Janice Dickinson Can't Depose Bill Cosby — For Now!

A judge wants to give Bill the chance to argue that it should be thrown out.

The wins just keep coming for Bill Cosby.

On Wednesday, a judge ruled that Janice Dickinson can't depose the 78-year-old in her defamation case… at least, not yet!

For those of you who might not remember, the model filed a lawsuit against the scandalized star last year, after the comedian accused the 60-year-old of fabricating her claims that he drugged and sexually assaulted her.

Back in November, a judge decided that the actor had to give a deposition in the case. But now, the new ruling is delaying the questioning.

The court said that the New York native doesn't have the right to interview her alleged attacker under oath until AFTER he has the chance to argue why it should be thrown out.

Hmmmm.

Is it just us, or does this sound pretty familiar to the recent ruling that delayed his wife's testimony in another defamation case?

What do U think of this decision, Perezcious readers?

Bill Cosby Gets A Small Victory! A Judge Has Agreed To Delay His Wife's Deposition!

Filed under: Legal MattersBill CosbyControversy

The judge says it's her legal right to appeal.

Bill Cosby is probably breathing a sigh of relief… for now, anyway.

On Tuesday, Judge David Hennessy granted the emergency motion to delay Camille Cosby's deposition in her husband's defamation case.

The 71-year-old's questioning was initially scheduled for Wednesday, but the U.S. Magistrate has ruled that it will be put off until after attorneys have had a chance to appeal his previous decision that ordered her to partake in the under-oath interview.

He wrote:

"It would not serve (and in fact would offend) the 'interest of justice' for this court to deny the motion for a stay, and thereby effectively deny Mrs. Cosby any right to appeal. In fairness then Mrs. Cosby's deposition shall be stayed [postponed] pending her appeal."

The deposition of the scandalized star's wife was requested in a civil case in which seven women claim that the actor drugged and sexually assaulted them.

The accusers' lawyer, Joseph Cammarata, is not concerned that he'll lose the appeal, telling People:

Bill Cosby's Lawyers File Emergency Motion To Delay Camille Cosby's Deposition

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsLegal MattersLove LineSexBill CosbyControversy

Bill's lawyers are trying to put a stop to Camille's deposition!

The pressure is on for Bill Cosby's lawyers.

On Monday, the scandalized star's attorneys filed an emergency motion to delay his wife's deposition for one of his defamation lawsuits.

According to court docs, the 78-year-old's legal representation is asking to hold off on Camille Cosby's questioning until they know the outcome of the appeal they filed.

As we previously reported, Judge David Hennessy denied her attempt to get out of testifying under oath regarding allegations that her husband drugged and sexually assaulted seven women.

But now, the comedian's lawyers are appealing that decision, and would like to prevent his lady love's deposition from happening before they find out if their motion is successful.

It'll be interesting to see if the justice system postpones Camille's testimony — which is scheduled for Wednesday — pending the appeal results.

We're also curious to see if a judge will rule in favor of the appeal, considering the accusers' lawyer says there's no "basis for appeal!"

Bill Cosby Reportedly Claiming He's 'Legally Blind' In New Defense In Sex Scandal Case!

Filed under: DrugsLegal MattersHealthBill CosbyControversy

We're pretty sure his current vision has nothing to do with his alleged actions from DECADES ago.

Wait… what?! This is very, um, eye-opening.

On Monday, a report came out that Bill Cosby is using his current health issues to defend himself in his recent lawsuits.

The scandalized star is supposedly using his eye conditions to claim that Beverly Johnson fabricated her story claiming she was drugged by the comedian.

According to court docs the Cosby Show alum filed in his defamation lawsuit against the 63-year-old, he is "legally and functionally blind" after suffering from glaucoma and keratoconus, a condition that changes the shape of his corneas. The disorder is known to distort vision.

A source validated the 78-year-old's vision problems, saying:

"Bill doesn't want to make an issue of his eye condition, but it's a real concern to his family and friends. I think his pals and family are greatly alarmed at his bug-eyed appearance."

Honestly we're a little confused because Beverly's story allegedly took place decades ago, and we don't see how the current state of the celeb's vision has anything to do with what she claims he did that long ago.

However, the report says Bill is using his ailing eyesight to discredit the actress' statement that he looked shocked to see her at the airport this year.

The legal papers said:
