‘Jane Does’ who tes­ti­fied in 2005 Cosby law­suit plan L.A. news con­fer­ence

Cape Breton Post - - ARTS/ENTERTAINMENT -

LOS AN­GE­LES — Two women who were “Jane Doe” wit­nesses in a 2005 law­suit by Bill Cosby’s first ac­cuser plan a news con­fer­ence to re­act to ex­cerpts from the co­me­dian’s de­po­si­tion in which he ad­mit­ted giv­ing at least one woman Quaaludes be­fore sex. Their lawyer, Glo­ria Allred, says she will an­nounce the next step in the le­gal process for the women at the news con­fer­ence Mon­day. The pair tes­ti­fied in a law­suit brought by An­drea Con­stand that al­leged sex­ual bat­tery by Cosby. Con­stand’s lawyer ar­gued that Cosby’s en­tire de­po­si­tion should be made public be­cause the co­me­dian’s lawyers broke the con­fi­den­tial­ity agree­ment that sealed the 2006 set­tle­ment. Ex­cerpts ob­tained by The As­so­ci­ated Press show Cosby ad­mit­ting that he ob­tained Quaaludes in the 1970s so that he could give them to women he pur­sued for sex.
