Last month comedian Bill Cosby filed a motion to have his criminal sexual assault case thrown out claiming the former District Attorney promised him immunity if he sat for a deposition after former Temple University employee Andrea Constand sued him in a civil case in 2004.
A judge has ruled the case can go forward...
The sexual assault case in Pennsylvania against Bill Cosby will go forward, a judge in Montgomery County ruled Wednesday.
Cosby's lawyers had argued for two days during a pretrial hearing that a criminal case had been barred by a promise made in 2005 by then-District Attorney Bruce Castor never to prosecute the renowned entertainer.
The judge on Wednesday ruled "there was no basis to grant the relief requested" by Cosby.Apparently the promise was oral and never given in writing and Cosby's lawyers could only produce a press release from the time stating no charges would be filed.
