Bill Cosby’s accuser drops sexual assault lawsuit

Los Angeles, Feb 3 (IANS) Chloe Goins, the former model who accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her at a Playboy Mansion party in 2008, has abandoned her civil lawsuit against the comedian.

About a month ago, the Los Angeles county district attorney’s office declined to file criminal charges in the case.

Federal court records in California show the attorney for Goins, 25, filed a voluntary dismissal of her lawsuit on Tuesday, as Cosby entered court in Pennsylvania to face an unrelated charge of aggravated indecent assault on another woman in 2004, reports people.com.

Meanwhile, in a separate case tied to an alleged encounter at the Playboy Mansion, Cosby on Tuesday was ordered to give a second deposition in a civil lawsuit filed by Judy Huth, who said she was 15 in 1974 when she claims Cosby sexually assaulted her at the mansion.

Huth’s attorney, Gloria Allred, first deposed Cosby in October 2015.

Cosby and his representatives have consistently denied all allegations of sexual assault or misconduct made against him by more than 50 women.
