Bill Cosby's efforts to keep court documents sealed from a 2005 sexual assault case have failed. On Monday, The Associated Press obtained files showing the star admitted to getting the sedative Quaaludes with the intention of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with.
The documents, which had been previously sealed due to a confidentiality agreement, also detailed Cosby's admission to giving the sedative to at least one woman and "other people."
Cosby was testifying under oath while facing a lawsuit from Andrea Constand, the Temple University employee who accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.
The 77-year-old comedian and Constand settled the case for an undisclosed amount in 2006 and the allegations were somewhat swept under the rug.
Cosby has since been accused of drugging and/or sexually assaulting more than two dozen women over the last four decades. He has never been criminally charged, as most of the claims have expired under the statute of limitations.
Neither Cosby nor his lawyers have responded to the recent findings.
