In a related development, Tony Hogue, a colleague of Beth Ferrier, who has accused Cosby of a drug-induced sexual assault, corroborated her account in a new interview.
The entertainer has been peppered with similar allegations from at least 17 women who have stepped forward and told similar tales involving drug-induced sex attacks.
But the latest alleged victim, identified in court papers as Judy Huth is not among them. Huth, now 55, says she was 15 in 1974 when she and a 16-year-old friend met Cosby on a Los Angeles movie set, according to the suit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Even though Cosby knew how old they were, he invited them to a tennis club a week later and provided them with alcoholic beverages, according to court papers obtained by Entertainment Weekly.
After the girls consumed “multiple” drinks,” Cosby allegedly invited them to the Playboy Mansion. He instructed them to tell anyone who asked that they were 19 years old.
While at the mansion, Cosby “proceeded to sexually molest her by attempting to put his hand down her pants, then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent,” court papers state.
Huth claims she suffered “severe and extreme emotional distress,” and is seeking unspecified punitive and exemplary damages.
Separately, Hogue said he spent two evenings at Cosby’s New York townhouse in 1984 with Ferrier and another model.
Cosby invited them back for dinner a third time, he said. Ferrier and her friend went, but he said he chose not to go because Cosby had tried to set him up with another married woman. Later that evening, one of women called him.
“She was crying. She was hysterical. She was whispering,” Hogue told The Daily Beast, a Hollywood Web site. “She said, ‘Tony, you’ve got to come get me.'” Hogue said the woman thought she’d been drugged.
Cosby through lawyers has vehemently denied all of the allegations and has never been criminally charged.
Cosby was sued once before in 2005 for alleged sexual assault after a suburban Philadelphia prosecutor declined to press charges in the case because of lack of evidence. The woman, Andrea Constand, worked for Temple University, Cosby’s alma mater.
