Bill Cosby Withdraws Lawsuit Against Accuser


Last week comedian Bill Cosby filed a breach of contract lawsuit against Andrea Constrand accusing her of violating the terms of their 2005 confidentiality agreement after she publicly spoke and Tweeted about Cosby's alleged sexual misconduct [click here if you missed that].

Cosby has decided not to pursue the lawsuit...

According to reports Bill Cosby's lawyers withdrew the lawsuit this week just ten days after being given the green light to sue.

If he'd won Andrea could have been forced to return her cash settlement.

Andrea Contrand accused Bill Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her inside his Philadelphia brownstone while she worked at Temple University in 2004.

No reason was given for the withdrawal.

Cosby is currently facing trial for the assault after the case was reopened by prosecutors [click here if you missed that].

the reason is he is guilty and had he won the money back she would have been able to tell all......... just put this old nasty man in jail now..............

He probably did that to cover his ass, because he knows he doesn't want more information about his alleged seedy activities exposed...and fools continue to defend him.

They probably realized he was about to go into court and say, "But I told you not to tell anyone I raped you!" Yeah, that's nagl. Especially, when you're staring down criminal proceedings for that very act.

Seriously, though, you can't enforce a contract that asks someone to commit a crime. Withholding evidence of a crime is also a crime. If Constand stays silent just because the contract tells her to, she and Bill are committing new crimes by conspiring to hide his original crime from prosecutors. He has no choice but to drop this case. He can never defend it in court.

I thought maybe he dropped the case because he's blind now, and doesn't want to be put through anymore stress. This man is dying. I'm sure he just wants all of this to be over with. They waited till he was old and blind to do this to him. Evil.
