Model sues Cosby over rape denials
Model and TV personality Janice Dickinson is suing Bill Cosby for defamation, alleging the comedian falsely called her a liar after she publicly claimed he sexually assaulted her 35 years ago.
Dickinson (60) is one of the best-known of the more than 40 women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault, and at least the second to file a dewfamation suit.
Dickinson alleges that Cosby (77) intentionally inflicted "emotional distress" and destroyed her professional reputation.
Cosby has never been charged over any of the allegations. He settled a 2005 civil suit alleging sexual misconduct.
