The Associated Press (AP) revealed on Monday, July 6, the achievement of a feat that many others could not: obtaining the unsealing of documents in the 2005 court case against Bill Cosby by accuser Andrea Constand, a former employee at Cosby’s alma mater, Temple University. Transcripts of the court proceedings revealed that Cosby admitted to drugging women with the intention of taking advantage of them sexually.
Stating that he gave Quaaludes to one woman and ‘other people’ that he wanted to have sex with, Cosby and his lawyers mounted a spirited campaign for decades to hide his sordid predatory habit and discredit his accusers. The unsealed court documents boost the credibility of his many accusers, now totaling 45 by some count, and provides a foundation for them to sue him in court.
Noted women’s rights advocate and attorney Gloria Allred, who is defending several Cosby accusers in court cases and could use the testimony to buttress her cases, addressed the new revelations, stating to The Associated Press:
“This confirms the allegations that numerous victims who have alleged that he had used drugs to sexually assault them. This admission is one that Mr. Cosby has attempted to hide from the public for many years and we are very gratified that it is now being made public.”
