Bill Cosby has been ordered to sit for yet another deposition in regard to a claim of sexual misconduct that allegedly occurred in 1974.
Earlier this week, lawyer Gloria Allred said the star will speak on his encounter with her client Judy Huth, the accuser who claims Cosby molested her at age 15. Huth filed a lawsuit against Cosby back in December, charging the comedian with sexual battery and infliction of emotional distress.
In the lawsuit, Huth alleged the incident took place in a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion after Cosby served her and a friend several drinks. She claims he told the teenagers to lie and say they were 19 years old if anyone asked of their age. Huth says Cosby later forced her to perform a sexual act with her hand.
Many of the decades-old allegations against Cosby have been barred by statutes of limitations. Yet Huth is covered by California law that allows underage victims of sex abuse to bring a claim after adulthood if they discover later in life that they suffered psychological injuries as a result of the abuse.
Cosby later countersued, claiming Huth came forward with her account in an attempt to extort the star.
A Santa Monica judge said he will set a date for Cosby's deposition by the end of the week, according to USA Today. It will come no later than Sept. 30 and Huth will also be deposed.
The new hearing comes on the heels of the release of Cosby's deposition from his 2005 sexual-battery lawsuit, which revealed several sexual affairs and his admission to drugging women for sex.
