Cosby wants settlement refund from accuser
PHILADELPHIA - Bill Cosby’s lawyers will ask a judge to order the accuser in his criminal sex assault case to refund the money he paid to settle her lawsuit a decade ago. Cosby argues that Andrea Constand violated their confidential agreement by speaking to police who reopened the case last year.
A federal judge will hear arguments Friday afternoon in the breach-of-contract suit Cosby filed before a key hearing in his criminal case in February.
Constand’s lawyers say Cosby is trying to harass their client, adding that his agents have issued frequent comments about the sex abuse allegations.
