Woman sues Bill Cosby, claims underage abuse
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.
Huth’s lawsuit states that Cosby took them to the Playboy mansion after several drinks. Her suit states Cosby forced her to perform a sex act on him with his hand.
An email message sent to Cosby’s attorney Martin Singer was not immediately returned.
The woman claims she suffered severe emotional distress and that she discovered its impact on her within the past three years, which allows her to file the lawsuit under California law.
