Cosby Team Calls Released Depostion a “Smear”

The unflattering portrait of Bill Cosby as a calculated womanizer who plied dates with quaaludes that  emerged from an unearthed deposition shows nothing criminal, his legal defense team said in a court filing this week, according to the New York Times. Their client “admitted to nothing more than being one of the many people who introduced Quaaludes into their consensual sex life in the 1970s,” the filing said. ” Quaaludes were a highly popular recreational drug in the 1970s, labeled in slang as ‘disco biscuits,’ and known for their capacity to increase sexual arousal.”

While fighting to prevent the unsealing of further documents, Cosby’s counsel called the leaked testimony, and the way it has been construed as essentially supporting the case of the comedian’s accusers, “a smear:” Emboldened by the media’s one-sided reporting, plaintiff has now filed a motion that is a barely-veiled attempt to continue her and her counsel’s campaign against him in the public eye,”

For her part, the lawyer for the woman who sued Cosby ten years ago, said “you cannot close the barn door.”
