Bill Cosby Found Liable in Civil Sexual Assault Case

Eight years ago Judy Huth was one of dozens of women who came forward accusing Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct, claiming he abused her at the Playboy Mansion when she was 16 [click here if you missed that]. 

This week Bill Cosby was found liable in the civil suit Huth filed against him.... 

Jurors at a civil trial found Tuesday that Bill Cosby sexually abused a 16-year-old girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1975.
The Los Angeles County jury delivered the verdict in favor of Judy Huth, who is now 64, and awarded her $500,000. She said the fact that jurors believed her story meant more than the sum of money or the fact that she didn't win punitive damages.
Cosby did not attend the trial or testify in person, but short clips from 2015 video deposition were played for jurors, in which he denied any sexual contact with Huth. He continues to deny the allegation through his attorney and publicist.
Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt said they would appeal the verdict and he claimed the defense won because Huth didn’t win punitive damages.
