Court puts hold on Cosby deposition.

A state appeals court has issued an order temporarily delaying depositions of Bill Cosby and his former attorney in connection with a defamation lawsuit filed against the comedian by former model Janice Dickinson. Dickinson contends that Cosby through his attorney at the time, Marin Singer, defamed Dickinson by calling her a liar when the supermodel came forward with a story alleging Cosby drugged and raped her in Lake Tahoe in the 1980’s

Cosby’s lawyer quickly appealed Katz’s decision, prompting an appeals panel to issue a stay on the ruling, blocking the planned depositions until it can hear arguments on the issue. The suit detailed 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. Cosby’s lawyers are attempting to throw out the case and Dickinson’s lawyers argued they needed sworn testimony from the comedian and Singer to properly oppose their efforts.

Dickinson’s complaint alleges defamation, false light invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and seeks unspecified damages. The statute of limitations for a criminal case has expired, but Dickinson maintains she was defamed when Cosby’s representatives accused her of making up the story in two November 2014 statements to the media responding to her accusations.
