A Southern Californian woman has sued actor and comedian Bill Cosby, claiming that he gave her alcohol and sexually molested her in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion in the 1970s when she was 15 years old.
In the suit, filed Tuesday in the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles, Judy Huth of Riverside, Calif., alleges that in 1974, she and a friend met Cosby in Los Angeles. He invited them to meet him the following weekend and took them to the Playboy mansion where he gave them alcohol.
The suit claims that he “proceeded to sexually molest her by attempting to put his hand down her pants and taking her hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent.”
Huth says the experience was very traumatic and adds that she discovered its impact on her within the past three years, which allows her to file the lawsuit under California law.
This traumatic incident, at such a tender age, has caused psychological damage and mental anguish for [Huth] that has caused significant problems throughout her life.
More than a dozen women have accused Cosby of drugging them and sexually assaulting them in the past weeks.
A statement released last month by Cosby’s attorney, Marty Singer, called the recent allegations against Cosby “unsubstantiated, fantastical stories.”
