The comedian Bill Cosby’s lawyers have asked a federal judge to close a lawsuit for slander against Cosby.
There are three women in the US state of Massachusetts who tried to sue Bill Cosby after he publicly called them liars when they claimed that he had sexually abused them.
A total of nearly 40 women accused the 77-year-old comedian for sexual offenses. Cosby strongly denies all the allegations and because the events must have taken place way back in time, they have all passed preskriberingsdatumet.
Bill Cosby lawyers argue that the lawsuit on defamation is a misguided attempt to circumvent preskriberingstiden for the alleged abuses.
