"Public officials who want to keep the public in the dark call

I know this is true for the following cases:

GIC 825879, later combined with GIC 781970, had five

Maura Larkins' earlier lawsuit against
Stutz' clients was thrown out in

Tactics for which Lozano, Smith

"repeated misstatements of the

Bill Cosby sues seven of his
accusers for defamation

Bill Cosby Files Lawsuit
Against Seven Accusers

As Boston University revokes honorary
degree conferred on the comedian

Bill Cosby has filed a lawsuit against
seven of the women who have accused
him of sexually assaulting them in what his
lawyer called an intentional bid to
“assassinate his character” for money.

The embattled comedian suffered
emotional distress and “substantial
injuries” to his reputation, business
contracts, as well as damage to his
property, his lawyer Monique Pressley
said Monday.

Cosby is countersuing Tamara Green,
Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa
Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis
and Angela Leslie for their “malicious,
opportunistic, and false and defamatory”
accusations of sexual misconduct,
according to the suit filed Monday in the U.
S. District Court in Massachusetts. The
accusers sought out to “cause damage”
to his reputation and to gain money, the
suit continues.

“Mr. Cosby states plainly that he neither
drugged nor sexually assaulted the
defendants,” Pressley said in the
statement. Cosby is seeking “relief” from
federal court and has asked the court to
stop the defendants to publicly “correct”
their public statements. Multiple women
have come forward to accuse Cosby of
sexual assault in recent years, claims he
has denied repeatedly.

The lawsuit comes as Boston University
announced it has stripped Cosby of his
honorary degree over the multiple claims.
The comedian’s alleged conduct
“demonstrates that his character fails to
reflect the integrity and virtues that the
university values and esteems,” it said in
a statement.

Cosby was given the honorary Doctor of
Humane Letters degree in 2014.

Bill Cosby Lawyers Fight
Deposition of Wife in
Defamation Lawsuit

by The Associated Press
Dec. 19, 2015

BOSTON — Lawyers for Bill Cosby said
Friday they will fight an attempt to require
his wife to give a sworn deposition in a
defamation lawsuit filed by seven women
who accuse the comedian of sexually
assaulting them decades ago.

A lawyer for the women has subpoenaed
Camille Cosby to be deposed on Jan. 6. at
a hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts.

But Cosby's lawyers filed a motion Friday
to quash the subpoena, saying she has
no firsthand, non-repetitive knowledge of
issues in the lawsuit. They also argue that
any confidential communications between
Cosby and his wife are protected by the
Massachusetts spousal disqualification
