Bill Cosby’s Civil Deposition — When He Admitted to Giving Women Drugs — Can Be Used at Trial

5 December 2016 3:52 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, judge ruled Monday that Bill Cosby’s deposition in his sexual assault accuser’s long-settled civil lawsuit against him can be used as evidence in his upcoming criminal trial.

Cosby’s attorneys argued in November that the judge should not allow the deposition to be used in the criminal case because, they claimed, former Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. promised not to prosecute the 79-year-old Cosby in exchange for his cooperation with Andrea Constand‘s lawsuit.

In the deposition for Constand’s suit, conducted over four days in 2005 and 2006, Cosby admitted to having »

Prosecutors Cleared to Use Bill Cosby's Deposition at Trial

5 December 2016 3:30 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

A Pennsylvania judge has ruled that damaging testimony Bill Cosby gave in an accuser's lawsuit can be used at his criminal sex assault trial.

The defense had insisted that Cosby only testified after being promised he wouldn't be charged in the Andrea Constand case.

Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill concluded Monday that Cosby never had a promise from prosecutors that he could never be charged.

The 79-year-old Cosby acknowledged in the 2006 deposition that he had given young women drugs or alcohol before sexual encounters. He called them consensual, but many of the women say they were drugged and molested.

The ruling on the deposition is one of two key pretrial issues. The judge must also decide if prosecutors can call 13 other accusers.

Bill Cosby’s Quaaludes Testimony Can Be Used in Assault Trial, Judge Says

5 December 2016 2:48 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Scandal-plagued comedian Bill Cosby was dealt a heavy blow in the looming sexual assault trial against him, as a judge ordered that potentially damaging deposition testimony that Cosby gave in 2005 and 2006 can be used in the case. Cosby’s team had sought to suppress the deposition testimony, claiming that previous Montgomery County, Pennsylvania district attorney Bruce Castor had agreed not to prosecute him for the alleged sexual assault of former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. However, in an order handed down Monday, Judge Steven. T. O’Neill shot down that line of argument. Also Read: Bill Cosby-Inspired Legislation Signed Into Law by. »

Bill Cosby Accusers Request Pause on Defamation Lawsuit

5 December 2016 12:16 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Back in February, after being criminally charged with sexual assault, Bill Cosby demanded to delay a defamation lawsuit brought by several women who claim being falsely branded as liars. At the time, plaintiffs' attorney Joseph Cammarata urged a Massachusetts judge to move forward, talking about the need to depose, among others, Cosby’s former attorney Martin Singer, music producer Quincy Jones and agents at William Morris Endeavor. 

Cammarata beat back a full stay of the case, but now he has reversed himself. Late last week, the attorney filed a motion to completely pause discovery of the civil lawsuit pending »

The Cosby Show: Sitcom Returning to TV After Being Dropped by Hulu

22 November 2016 3:30 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Over the past couple of years, TV Land, Bet, and other outlets dropped The Cosby Show reruns from their lineups. Networks made these programming changes, after scores of rape and sexual assault allegations, leveled against Bill Cosby, came to the public fore. Just earlier this month, Hulu let its licensing deal with producers Carsey Werner expire. According to THR though, "insiders" say that had nothing to do with the accusations made by more than 50 women.It seems that now, The Cosby Show is bouncing back. Bounce TV has picked up the sitcom in syndication. The network says there is "popular demand" for it. The Cosby Show will begin airing on Bounce, December 19th. This move comes as something of a surprise. After the scandal had played out for the better part of a year, in July 2015, the cable channel pulled its Cosby TV series reruns. That sitcom first ran on CBS from 1996 to 2000.Read »

Judge Rejects Latest Bill Cosby Bid to Dismiss Criminal Sexual Assault Case

16 November 2016 1:59 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

On Wednesday, Bill Cosby was handed two big defeats by a Pennsylvania judge overseeing a criminal case that charges him with sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. 

Judge Steven O'Neill rejects Cosby's motion to dismiss the charges based on an alleged deprivation of defendant's due process rights.

Cosby had argued that the decade-long delay by the Montgomery County District Attorney to charge the entertainer "created a perfect storm of prejudice, bias, and delay," as witnesses died, evidence disappeared, and his eyeslight slipped. 

His lawyers also again pointed to the non-prosecution agreement, which allowed Cosby to testify in Constand's civil suit, and »

Judge Refuses — Again — to Dismiss Bill Cosby’s Sexual Assault Charges

16 November 2016 11:47 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill on Wednesday refused to dismiss the sexual assault charges against Bill Cosby and ruled against him on two other motions.

O’Neill also promised to rule before the next court hearings, scheduled for Dec. 13-14, on whether Cosby’s depositions in a long-settled civil suit against him may be used in his criminal case. And the judge denied Cosby’s request for competency hearings and in-camera interviews with 13 women who prosecutors want to have testify at his trial.

What if Bill Cosby’s Career Could Rebound After His Sexual Assault Trials?

11 November 2016 3:20 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

At least as far as his lawyers are concerned, Bill Cosby intends to return to his entertainment career — once all these rape accusations are sorted out.

In a brief arguing that documents relating to her client’s lawsuit should be sealed, Cosby’s attorney Angela Agrusa wrote to a judge in Massachusetts that the 79-year-old disgraced entertainer — who has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault spanning decades — hopes to return to his career after this case is resolved.

“When Mr. Cosby is cleared from all liability and charges, he expects to resume his career, and there is no reason to believe otherwise,” she argued.

“No reason.” Hm.

To be sure, this is the law as usual. Lawyers are supposed to defend their clients however they can. But in the face of what has come out of the woodwork about Cosby, this brief is brazen reframing of his current public image. The »

As he fights to put an end to a criminal prosecution, Bill Cosby is optimistic that he'll again entertain fans at some point in the future.

The documents in question, according to court briefs, contain information about Cosby's negotiated compensation for his performances, some of his contracts and also reflect the cancelation of business arrangements since the sexual assault firestorm.

Norman Brokaw, Innovative, Powerful Agent at William Morris, Dies at 89

29 October 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

William Morris agent Norman Brokaw, who rose from the mailroom of the fabled agency to chairman-ceo in a career that spanned seven decades, has died. He was 89.

Brokaw packaged talent for radio, paving the way for similar, highly lucrative agency efforts in television and, indeed, helped start Wma’s television division, luring major film stars to TV. His contract negotiations for actress Kim Novak led to increased profit participation deals for talent, and he guided the career of Bill Cosby. Brokaw was also a pioneer in signing sports stars to talent deals.

In 1943, the 15-year-old Brokaw was employed delivering mail for Morris at $25 a week, and he became the first employee to use this route to becoming an agent, paving the way for countless other agents and executives including Michael Ovitz, Barry Diller, Sue Mengers and David Geffen. He was the nephew of Morris agent Johnny Hyde and rose by getting to know the inner workings of »

Bill Cosby Is ‘Legally Blind’ and Can’t Identify His Accusers, His Lawyers Say

28 October 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Bill Cosby is now “legally blind” and his memory has “substantially declined” so he will have trouble defending himself and identifying his accusers, his attorneys said in a 13-page brief filed late Thursday.

“How can a 79-year-old blind man defend himself against a claim that he sexually assaulted someone he supposedly met once, half a century ago?” states the brief, filed by Cosby attorneys Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa and obtained by People.

“The answer is simple: He cannot, and the Commonwealth knows he cannot … Without his eyesight, Mr. Cosby cannot even determine whether has has ever even seen some of his accusers, »

Seth Meyers Takes A Closer Look At Donald Trump

26 October 2016 9:11 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

As we get closer and closer to election day, Seth Meyers takes a closer look at the last few days of Trump’s campaign/efforts/kooky statements on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

I don’t want to get political here, though this was good for several laughs, but some things about what seems to be Trump’s spiral are worth recognizing, and since Seth is willing to pick up the ball, I don’t have to actually do it.

Trump is apparently becoming exceedingly paranoid, and now he’s even having a go at alligators for reason. As someone has already said, Trump’s “media against me” claims are hard to address, because it seems all he’s complaining about is that the media keeps reporting what he said.

Also making the news recently, Trump has vowed to sue the women who have come forward to accuse him. It, »
