LOS ANGELES—A Southern California woman has sued Bill Cosby, claiming the comedian molested her around 1974 when she was 15 years old.

Judith Huth claims in the sexual battery lawsuit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles that the molestation occurred in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion. Huth’s suit states that she and a friend first met Cosby at a Los Angeles film shoot and the comedian gave them drinks a week later at a tennis club.

An email message sent to Cosby’s attorney Martin Singer was not immediately returned.
