STANDING GROUND

Cosby Attempts to Dismiss Sex Cases

On Friday, comedian and actor Bill Cosby filed a motion in a District Court in western Massachusetts to dismiss three defamation cases brought against him by Tamara Green, Therese Serignese, and Linda Traitz. The three were among more than 30 women who came forward with accusations that Cosby had sexually assaulted them in the 1970s, and claim Cosby’s team publicly branded them liars after they came forward. While many of the women say they were drugged before the comedian forced himself on them, Cosby has stayed mostly silent on the matter, denying all accusations.
