Cosby Underage Sex Abuse Case To Go Forward

Bill Cosby has lost his attempt to have an underage sex abuse case against him thrown out of court.

A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge on Tuesday ruled that Judy Huth's lawsuit against the comedian can go forward.

Ms Huth, now in her 50s, alleges Cosby forced her to perform a sex act on him at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, when she was 15 years old.

She sued Cosby in December 2014 for infliction of emotional distress.

Her attorney, Gloria Allred, said in a statement that the decision was a "vindication of our position that this lawsuit should be permitted to proceed to trial".

The ruling was not the only legal setback for the 78-year-old actor on Tuesday.

Earlier, a judge in Manhattan rejected Cosby's attempt to force the publisher of New York magazine to hand over notes and other materials used for a cover story last year chronicling some 35 women's sexual assault claims against him.

And a judge in Pennsylvania on Tuesday set a 24 May date for a preliminary hearing in Cosby's criminal sex assault case - which he also failed to get thrown out.

In that case, former Temple University employee Andrea Constand alleges Cosby drugged and molested her at his Montgomery County home in 2004.

Cosby, who acknowledged the sexual encounter but said it was consensual, reached an undisclosed settlement with Ms Constand in 2005.
