Bill Cosby Reacts To Guilty Verdict In Sexual Assault Civil Suit

Bill Cosby reacted to a civil jury finding him guilty of sexually abusing a woman named Judy Huth when she was 16 years old in 1975.

“Yesterday actor and comedian Bill Cosby was awarded an astonishing victory by jurors in a civil trial brought by Judy Huth,” Cosby’s spokesperson, Andrew Wyatt. said in a statement. “The jurors decided to grant Judy Huth with a $500,000 verdict but voted 9-3 in favor of not rewarding Ms. Huth any punitive damages.”

Huth says when she was 16, the actor drove her to the Playboy Mansion and assaulted her.

Cosby’s lawyer Jennifer Bonjean said the team will appeal the verdict.

“Within a few weeks, Attorney Jennifer Bonjean will be in Judge Craig D. Karlan court to appeal the $500,000 verdict, which means that Ms. Huth will never receive a payday from Mr. Cosby and her estimated mounting legal bills ($3 million plus dollars) with Allred, Maroko & Goldberg will be outstanding for many years to come,” the statement says. “If the jurors had awarded punitive damages to Judy Huth it would have been in the range of $10 million plus dollars, which would have been a devastating loss to our legal efforts and the Cosby family.”
