(Source: AP) Former supermodel Janice Dickinson has revealed that she and her lawyer Lisa Bloom are planning to file a law suit against Bill Cosby for defamation over denials made by the comedian’s representatives after she accused him of raping her in 1982. In legal papers filed yesterday, Miss Dickinson said that she has been “re-victimised” and that her reputation has suffered because of pointed denials by Cosby’s lawyer.

The documents lodged at the Los Angeles County superior court say she is seeking unspecified damages for defamation, false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The allegations were first made in an interview with Entertainment Tonight after numerous other women accused Cosby of drugging them and inappropriate sexual conduct dating back several decades. I want to protect all those women that haven’t come forward and show them the love and support worldwide that what happened to me will not happen to another woman,” Dickinson said.

Lisa further said, “What sparked this lawsuit is Bill Cosby through his representatives calling Janice Dickinson a liar, and Janice, through her lawsuit, is refusing to be re-victimises. The lawsuit details Dickinson’s allegations that Cosby raped her after giving her wine and a pill in the hotel room, and how she wanted to go public with her story in a 2002 autobiography but was prevented from doing so by the book’s publisher. The statute of limitations to criminally prosecute the actor-comedian has long since passed, as has the statute on civil claims directly related to the incident. One of the women, Therese Serignese, said after a court hearing earlier this month that she wanted her reputation restored after Cosby’s camp branded her a liar.

Dickinson’s lawsuit is seeking a similar outcome. “Cosby knows that he drugged and raped Ms Dickinson,” the lawsuit states. “He knew that calling her rape disclosure a lie was a false statement.”
