Cosby appeals file unsealingPHILADELPHIA - Bill Cosby’s lawyers are appealing a judge’s decision to unseal court filings that quote him saying he obtained quaaludes to give women before sexual encounters.
Cosby’s lawyers in Pennsylvania filed a brief notice Monday appealing the July 6 decision in a 2005 lawsuit accusing him of sexual battery.
The newly public court filings contain excerpts of Cosby’s deposition in that case and were unsealed on a bid by The Associated Press.
The full deposition has since been released by a court reporting service and contains Cosby’s only testimony under oath about accusations he sexually assaulted a string of women.
Cosby acknowledges several of the encounters but says they were consensual. AP
