Bill Cosby is fighting back against the woman who claims he got her drunk before sexually assaulting her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, saying she’s a liar who tried extorting him and raising the price as new women came forward.
In legal documents filed by Cosby – and obtained by TMZ – the comedian says Judy Huth’s lawyer approached his attorney, Marty Singer, last month and made “ominous references to criminal penalties.”
The docs say Huth’s lawyer demanded $100K for silence, and later increased the demand to $250K as more women came forward.
In the new docs, Cosby notes the woman — who is now 56 years old — tried to sell the story to the tabloids around 10 years ago but no one bit. So the comedian says it’s total BS that she would now say she had a repressed memory, which would allow her to file a civil lawsuit. In other words, she’d have to file suit within 3 years of the time she remembered, but she supposedly remembered a decade ago.
The docs say her story falls apart because she claims she and Cosby played a “drinking game” 40 years ago … yet Cosby is “a life-long non-drinker.”
The docs also say Huth’s lawyer was sketchy when he tried squeezing money out of Cosby, not even knowing if Huth went to a therapist.
Cosby is demanding that the lawsuit get dismissed, and he wants monetary sanctions as well.
