Janice Dickinson sues Cosby for defamation.

Janice Dickinson is suing Bill Cosby following a denial issued by a legal representative, adding to the list of lawsuits the embattled comedian currently faces.LOS ANGELES (AP) – Model Janice Dickinson sued Bill Cosby for defamation on Wednesday over denials made by the comedian’s representatives after she accused him last year of raping her in 1982. The suit states Dickinson has been re-victimised and her reputation has suffered because of pointed denials by Cosby’s attorney that the comedian drugged and raped her in a Lake Tahoe, California, hotel room more than 30 years ago.

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. Initially, she says she had gone to Cosby’s home there to discuss a part on The Cosby Show. “I remember more specifically waking up and that … there was a lot of pain downstairs,” she told CNN in December last year. “There was semen all over me and my pajama bottoms were off and the top was opened. At that point, fight or flight, I Just packed up and got the hell out of there.” “They only story she gave 12 years ago to the media and in her autobiography was that she refused to sleep with Mr. The lawsuit details Dickinson’s allegations that Cosby (left) 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. Dickinson’s own words show that her new story about something she now claims happened back in 1982 is a fabricated lie.” In addition to Dickinson’s suit, Cosby also currently faces defamation claims from accusers Linda Traitz, Therese Serignese, and Tamara Green in Massachusetts.

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.
