Judge Rules Bill Cosby Can Be Questioned By Janice Dickinson’s Lawyers

Bill Cosby and his former attorney can be deposed by Janice Dickinson’s attorneys for her defamation lawsuit against the comedian, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge ruled Monday.

Debre Katz Weintraub said that Cosby and Marty Singer can be questioned before the end of November.

Dickinson sued Cosby for defamation after he denied he raped her in a Lake Tahoe hotel room 30 years ago and his lawyer called her a “liar.” (RELATED: Janice Dickinson Sues Bill Cosby)

“The judge limited the deposition to evidence showing the denial of the allegation that Cosby raped the model in Lake Tahoe in 1982 was made maliciously,” the Los Angeles Times reports.

“The move essentially prevents extensive questioning of Cosby about the 50 other women who have accused him of sexual assault or abuse. The judge also noted that Singer would be able to assert attorney-client privilege in not answering some questions.”

She is among dozens of women who have accused Cosby of rape, though no formal charges have ever been brought against him. (RELATED: Janice Dickinson Swears She’s Not Paid To Say Cosby Raped Her)
