Chicago Sun-Times - - NATION/WORLD -

PHILADEL­PHIA — Bill Cosby’s lawyers ar­gued in an ap­peals fil­ing Tues­day that it was “fun­da­men­tally un­fair” to let pros­e­cu­tors use Cosby’s dam­ag­ing de­po­si­tion from a sex ac­cuser’s law­suit against him at trial.

Cosby be­lieves he had a bind­ing prom­ise from a pros­e­cu­tor that he could never be charged in the case, and said tes­ti­mony from five other ac­cusers had im­prop­erly prej­u­diced the jury against him.

A spokes­woman for the Mont­gomery County dis­trict at­tor­ney’s of­fice de­clined com­ment.

Cosby, 83, is serv­ing a three- to 10-year prison term af­ter be­ing con­victed in 2018 of three counts of felony sex as­sault.
