Bill Cosby wants a new trial after losing sexual assault lawsuit

In June, a jury found that bill cosby was liable in a civil case for sexually assaulting a woman named Judy Huth at the Playboy Mansion when she was a minor. She is now asking for a new trial because of a problem with the facts of the case.

Cosby’s attorneys returned to court Thursday, arguing that Huth was wrong about the year she was sexually assaulted and that they had no opportunity to find witnesses for her defense. Attorney Jennifer Bonjean said that if she knew about the new time period, she would have been able to present more witnesses, according to the hollywood reporter.

“Mr. Cosby was very prejudiced because of the late disclosure of the years in which the events allegedly occurred,” Bonjean said. “Our entire defense, an alibi defense, went out the window when Huth found out, if you want to call it thus, that the events did not occur in 1974 or when she was 15 years old.”

Huth alleged that Cosby forced her to perform a sexual act on him after she met him in a park during the filming of the film. Let’s do it again, and from there he invited her to the mansion. She is one of 50 women to accuse the disgraced comedian of sexually assaulting her. She has denied all allegations, even after being convicted of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand, a conviction that was overturned by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Huth received $500,000. Bonjean’s argument was a last ditch effort to have the verdict overturned barring an appeal. Huth’s attorney, John West, said the defense knew the timeline because the movie was made in 1975. The argument is that Huth claimed the assault occurred in 1974.

Cosby’s attorneys also argued that the testimony of Kimberly Burr, a woman who said Cosby kissed her when she was underage, should not have been allowed because Huth was a different age at the time of the alleged assault.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Craig Karlan countered that it showed Cosby’s intent.

“The evidence shows that this was not an accident, that Cosby thought she was 18 years old. [The testimony] it was not to show that he rapes a woman, but to show that he is interested in minors for sexual reasons. Do you understand the distinction?

Bonjean said the testimony was only presented to tell the jury that Cosby liked young women. Karlan said, “No, it goes to intent.”

Karlan will review the defense motion and grant or deny the defense motion soon. We will keep you informed when something new is developed.
