After the past few weeks, Bill Cosby probably isn’t in a hurry to sit down for another deposition. But come October, he’s scheduled to answer more questions in relation to a sexual battery case against him.
Cosby has been ordered to sit for a deposition in a case brought by Judy Huth on October 9, Huth’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, said Wednesday.
The date was set following months of back-and-forth. Cosby was initially scheduled for June 26. However, Cosby didn’t appear for the deposition, and the scandal-plagued comedian’s attorneys argued that they should be allowed to take Huth’s deposition prior to Cosby being deposed.
However, in a ruling issued in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, Allred’s application to take Cosby’s deposition prior to Huth’s was granted.
“We are pleased that we will now be able to move ahead without further delay on Ms. Huth’s case and we look forward to taking Mr. Cosby’s deposition on October 9, 2015,” Allred said in a statement.
Huth’s deposition will take place Oct. 15.
Huth has accused Cosby of committing sexual misconduct against her at the Playboy Mansion when she was 15.
Cosby’s attorney, Martin Singer, has denied such accusations in the past.
In recent months, the embattled comedian has been accused of sexual assault by dozens of women, with a common thread of the allegations being that he had drugged the women beforehand. Earlier this month, excerpts from a 2005 deposition surfaced, revealing that Cosby had admitted to obtaining Quaaludes to give to women that he wanted to have sex with.
Cosby’s representatives have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
