Bill Cosby Files Suit Against Judy Huth Alleged Victim

Actor and Comedian Bill Cosby is lashing back at the 56-year-old woman who made claims that he molested her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974.

Bill Cosby files suit against alleged victimThe woman, identified as Judy Huth, claims that when she was 15-years-old…Cosby got her drunk and  took her in a bedroom and sexually assaulted her.

According to  TMZ.com,  Cosby  filed legal docs.  In the documents he notes that the woman is lying and that she is attempting to extort money.

The documents also say that  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.”
