Bill Cosby sexual assault allegations

Editor's note: The Associated Press had gone to court to compel the release of documents from the 2005 deposition in a sexual lawsuit against comedian Bill Cosby filed by a former Temple University employee. In his sworn testimony, Cosby was asked, "When you got the quaaludes, was it in your mind that you were going to use these quaaludes for young women that you wanted to have sex with?" He answered "Yes." Cosby has never been criminally charged but has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual misconduct dating back more than four decades. Three women have brought a defamation lawsuit against him in Massachusetts, which is pending. Cosby's lawyers had fought AP's efforts to unseal this testimony, arguing it could prejudice the jury pool in Massachusetts. - Stephanie
