Bill Cosby Scores Big Win In Federal Court

A ruling on Monday allowed Bill Cosby to continue with his lawsuit against Andrea Constand, her mother, and her lawyers, according to Law Newz.

U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno ruled on Monday that Cosby could not sue Andrea Constand, her mother, or her attorneys for cooperating with law enforcement after they reopened the 12-year-old settled case against Cosby,  however, the judge did rule that Cosby’s other claims were valid and could proceed to trial.

12 years ago when Constand accused Cosby of sexual assault in 2004, the former Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor never charged Cosby, and still stand by his decision based on the reports and facts surrounding the alleged assault. Castor stated:

 “Authorities found insufficient “credible, and admissible evidence” … Castor said that without evidence to corroborate Constand’s story, criminal justice was not realistic.

Castor testified that he wanted to see Constand become a millionaire and made it possible by taking away Cosby’s Fifth Amendment rights in any “subsequent civil proceedings.”  Constand did sue Cosby and was awarded a large settlement.

Cosby is suing Constand claiming that she breached a confidentiality provision in a settlement agreement that they made, from cooperating with law enforcement officials about the allegations and then by tweeting references to them.

Cosby also alleged that Constand’s attorneys violated confidentiality by being involved in the release of a deposition from years ago, where Cosby admitted to providing drugs to women who willingly consumed quaaludes in the 70’s. (See below article from People.com an exclusive interview with Therese Serignese)

Constand argued that she should not be held liable for her tweets because they did not mention Cosby by name.

She tweeted in February 2014, months before the accusations started to surface:

“I won’t go away, there is a lot more I will say,” and, “It’s not that everybody just forgot about it, truth is nobody cared.”

Let’s not forget these tweets:img_8713-1.jpg

The tweets seem to coincide with the articles released by Barbara Bowman (BB) and Tamara Green (TG) in Newsweek…Bowman and Green were Jane Does from Constand’s civil lawsuit.

Please pay attention to the dates of the tweets, the news allegations started to come out against Cosby October 2014…and let’s not forget what Phylicia Rashad said in January 2015:

“What you’re seeing is the destruction of a legacy. And I think it’s orchestrated. I don’t know why or who’s doing it, but it’s the legacy. And it’s a legacy that is so important to the culture.” “This show represented America to the outside world. This was the American family. And now you’re seeing it being destroyed. Why?”

If Cosby prevails, Constand would have to pay back money that she received as part of the settlement agreement.

Cosby has always said their relationship was consensual and he has always proclaimed his innocence.

The criminal case against Cosby is pending, if convicted Cosby is facing over 30 years in prison.

Shortly after today’s federal court ruling attorney’s for Cosby released a statement:

As we have said before, we are not going to try this case in the press. Thus, while we are, of course, very pleased with the court’s ruling in favor of our client, which means that this case will be decided where it should be – in a court of law and on a full factual record – we will not comment further on the ruling.

  1. Had to have a little giggle at the Tamara green Newsweek article when it said ” As Gawker pointed out”….the same Gawker which was successfully sued for $140 million bu hulk Hogan and is now up for sale. Newsweek taking information from Gawker as gospel might end up with its a$$ in a suit as well….one can only hope

  2. I doubt as this article states that Andrea’s mother is still included in the law suit if it was determined they can’t be sued for cooperating with law enforcement. I would be surprised if Cosby continues this knowing depositions could be scheduled during the criminal trial. It appears no information contained in the settlement was released and Andrea made sure everyone knew she couldn’t talk about it. On the other hand Cosby wasn’t quite as careful with his broad sweeping attorney statements, one of which required a retraction and a PR rep claiming Andrea’s case had no merit.

    1. I see it’s taken a few days for you shills to get your spin together after the judge ruled in Cosby’s favor.. Sorry but your post is bad bs. Constand’s mother was only released from one of Cosby’s claims. The rest were allowed to go forward against all parties. The attempt to narrow the frame with the “information contained in the settlement” spin is just dumb. Your “surprise if Cosby continues…” is just a weak hope as this has been going on since last July. The “retraction” spin is simply a lie as nothing was retracted or withdrawn.

      1. The statement disappeared and a retraction was made saying the statement didn’t refer to Andrea. Troiani had here name on the retraction to let everyone know it wasn’t voluntary. Cosby suing Andrea while the criminal investigation is ongoing and not getting to sue her for cooperating with law enforcement isn’t what I would think he was hoping for. It doesn’t appear she said anything and Cosby may have to sit for a deposition before the criminal trial. Care to make any predictions?

        1. More nonsense from you. The reality is that nothing disappeared or was retracted. Your simply saying so doesn’t make it true but given your bizarre and continued obsession with Benadryl and your other “powerful sedatives” imagings, I’m not surprised.

          What you think Cosby hoped for is just more of your terrible spin. He was allowed to proceed on all his claims, except one, against all the parties. Your ‘it doesn’t appear” is just more of your wrong wishful thinking and finally, in terms of depos, what you should be worried about is that Constand and her posse might have to sit for depos in the Cosby AND Castor cases. I predict that Steele is not thrilled about that.

          1. A lawyer representing Cosby, John P. Schmitt, posted a statement to Cosby’s website in response to rape allegations resurfacing. That statement read, in part, that the accusations had been “discredited” and said “The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true.”

            But two days later, Schmitt’s initial statement vanished from Cosby’s site; in its place was a joint statement between Schmitt and Dolores Troiani, counsel to Andrea Constand. (Constand filed a lawsuit against Cosby in 2004 in which she claimed he sexually assaulted her; in 2006, they settled for an undisclosed amount.) In that statement, Schmitt and Troiani clarified that the first statement “was not intended to refer in any way to Andrea Constand,” presumably because it would have violated the terms of the 2006 settlement. “Neither Mr. Cosby nor Ms. Constand intends to comment further on the matter,” the statement concluded,

            1. So? That’s not a “retraction”. For some strange reason you seem stuck on that spin. Does it make you feel better? Odd. It was a simple clarification that Troiani agreed to in writing and adding YOUR “presumably because…” line in the verbiage to make it sound “official” seem like the original statement was some sort of violation is not even remotely clever and, given Troiani’s written agreement in the clarification, besides the point. Fail.

                1. If you say so. Either way, “presumably…” still doesn’t matter as the matter was agreed to by all parties in public in writing.

                2. If you say so. Either way, “presumably…” still doesn’t matter as the matter was agreed to by all parties in public in writing.

  3. Therese Serignese the woman who couldn’t remember if she had sex, or how often, while staying with him but remembers the sex while drugged and out cold…..yeah sounds reasonable…NOT

  4. Didnt imagine they would get past the Law enforcement aspect but its great to see the rest of it move forward. How long before Troiani and Kivizt tell Constand she on her own and get their own representation in this?

  7. Good information.
    We should remember that Therese Serignese is describing events from some 40 years ago, around 1975, in the People Magazine article.
    Quaaludes was a legally prescribed drug, often for backpain and relaxation. It was generally considered harmless like marijuana. Many women were using them to increase their sexual pleasure.
    This was the era of disco and one of the most popular #1 hit songs was the BeeGee’s “Jive Talking” —
    All your jive talkin’ telling me lies, yeah,

    Jive talkin’, you wear a disguise,
    (C’mon, c’mon),
    Jive talkin’, so misunderstood, yeah,
    Jive talkin’, you just ain’t no good.

          1. not jive talkin. fyi

            “Bill Cosby is ‘completely blind’ and homebound

            The disgraced comedian once known as “America’s Dad” is now confined to his Pennsylvania home with only his incomprehensibly loyal wife, Camille, at his side.

            The source close to Cosby told us, “His alleged victims may take some solace in the fact that he’s in his own personal hell. He has been suffering from a degenerative eye disease and is completely blind . . . All his Hollywood friends have turned their backs on him.”

            1. Well….That WOULD work if you werent called out for shaming people for their disabilities, but since you have been Ashley, you ARE a disablist. OWN it.

              1. and you claim to use voodoo dolls lol. it’s no wonder you are so cornfused. it’s backfiring luci.

                1. Well, if thats the case, its safe to assume that you Jessie suffer from Dyslexia since your names are written backwards. See how that works?

              2. Ashley is a miserable human being. She constantly insults, bully and harasses other people online. So now she is making fun of your vision impairment— again ??? I blocked her – to spare myself from being subjected to her ignorance. She must not be allowed in the group huddle – wonder what they are planning now sense they just now realized how running their mouths on social media may cost the ” big fish” Constand her settlement money…

                1. She has had me blocked, she must be lonely with no one paying any attention to her. She just loves shaming peoples disabilities which is odd because she certainly has no problem using her mental illness and her alleged victim status at her convenience to accuse people of attacking her. Not sure why she felt the need to mention Cosby being blind other than as a disparaging remark, as usual. If she felt the need to mention it, she should have posted it on the article you wrote about it.

                3. “She has had me blocked,”
                  and that is a lie. i only reply when i want to and, i usually don’t want to. fyi.

                4. “She has had me blocked,”
                  and that is a lie. i only reply when i want to and, i usually don’t want to. fyi.

                5. The lie being, saying you were going to block me, not replying for a month and then trying to claim you just didnt feel like responding. Nice try.

                6. i never said i was blocking you. never said i was blocking anyone else either. ignoring you is what i typically prefer. nice try yourself. you will need to provide some kind of proof that i said anything about blocking you but, you can’t, you won’t, cause it didn’t happen.

                  This guy’s a different kind of ill, he wears his hatred on his
                  sleeve, lacks the skill and ability to hide it. But I can’t stress the
                  “block” option enough, it’s a very positive thing and even this oozing mess of a man can be used as an advertisement for it! Imagine if you will, a week without beano and keke and Luci and Craig. Lol, it’s not like they provide meaningful opportunities, you wouldn’t miss much beyond insults and ick.

                  Thanks for the heads up on blocking. That’s one way to put out the garbage.

                9. Idiot? Are you talking to yourself again? You claimed there was no proof, there it is. You are not a leader by any means, you are merely a follower and like a good dog, would follow thru as asked. You stated that Burt was your “first block” which clearly indicates you had every intention to follow thru with blocking more people, not simply “ignoring”, like this BS you are currently trying to sell now that you are trapped in your own lie.
