Allegations of sexual assault keep piling up on Bill Cosby. The newest attack on his iconic status comes in a lawsuit filed by Judy Huth who is alleging that she was sexually assaulted in the 1970s when she was a teenager. Huth claims that Cosby made moves on her at the Playboy Mansion during the height of Cosby’s career as an actor when he starred in such big hits as Uptown Saturday Night and Let’s Do it Again.
In the complaint, Huth alleges that she me Cosby on a nearby movie shoot and the actor invited her to stick around. Afterward, they went to his private tennis club and he gave her alcoholic beverages knowing that she was only 15. Soon thereafter, according to the lawsuit, Cosby took Huth and a female friend to Hugh Hefner’s mansion with instructions to tell people that the girls were 19 if asked about their age. Cosby, who was 37 at the time, allegedly took her to one of the bedrooms at the mansion and while she was using the restroom disrobed and awaited her on the bed. He then called her over and masturbated himself with her hand.
Despite the fact that the alleged incident took place more than 40 years ago, Huth said she is still emotionally distraught from the episode and filed a lawsuit against Cosby this week. Huth stated in her lawsuit that she “suffered damages that are substantial and continuing.” In the past month at least 20 other women have come forward with similar claims of sexual assault by Cosby, which occurred decades ago. Cosby’s lawyers have not issued a statement regarding the new lawsuit.
