Bill Cosby in all sorts of trouble as nine more women accuse him of sex assault in lawsuit

Nine women accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault decades ago in a lawsuit filed in Nevada after the US state lifted its statute of limitations on civil sexual assault cases, reports RTE.

The lawsuit alleges that the American comedian used his “enormous power, fame and prestige” to isolate and sexually assault women.

The women were allegedly assaulted in homes, hotels and dressing rooms between 1979 and 1992 in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and Reno.

They were able to file the lawsuit after Nevada lifted its civil statute of limitations on adult sexual assault cases on May 31.

The state previously imposed a two-year limit on anyone over the age of 18 to bring a lawsuit.

Mr Cosby, 85, was a prominent figure in American popular culture in the late 20th century and was once known as “America’s Dad” for his role on “The Cosby Show,” which aired from 1984-92.

Dozens of women have accused him of violent behavior in allegations spanning decades.

About 60 women have accused Mr. Cosby of being a calculating, serial predator who drugged and alcoholed his victims for four decades before attacking them.

Despite numerous lawsuits filed against him, Mr. Cosby has never been convicted but was held liable in a civil suit last year.

He was imprisoned in a criminal case in 2018 before being released in 2021 when his conviction was overturned on a technicality, reports RTE.

Lise-Lotte Lublin, a woman named in the Nevada lawsuit, previously accused Mr. Cosby of drugging her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 1989.

Ms. Lublin said Mr. Cosby gave her two drinks that made her dizzy, and he told her to sit between his legs and stroke his hair before he passed out.

Other defendants in the case include Janice Dickinson, Janice Baker Kinney, Lily Barnard, Heidi Thomas, Linda Kirkpatrick, Rebecca Cooper, Pam Joy Abetta and Angela Leslie, reports RTE.

Mr Cosby’s spokesman, Andrew Watt, told US media that the women were motivated by their “addiction to massive amounts of media attention and greed”, reports RTE.
