Bill Cosby is being tried in a civil court for sexual abuse allegations

Judy Hutt, 64, claims that Cosby forced her to have sex at the Playboy mansion in 1975 when she was 16 years old.

SANTA MONICA, California – Bill Cosby will face sexual harassment charges again on Wednesday as lawyers have to testify in a civil court, one of the latest lawsuits against the comedian.

Lawyers for 64-year-old Judy Hutt will reveal evidence that Cosby planned to present in 1975 when she was 16 and forced him to have sex at the Playboy mansion. The case will depend on Huth’s statement, which is supported by photographs and other archival exhibits to cover the event in a timely manner.

Cosby’s lawyers, who said no sexual violence had taken place, would most likely point out that the burden of proving the case, which has lasted nearly 50 years, falls entirely on the plaintiffs. They admitted that Cosby took Huth to the Playboy mansion, as shown in the photo from the visit, but they believe he was not a minor when it happened.

The trial is the latest in a series of cases in which Cosby, 85, faces charges after a Pennsylvania appellate court dropped his sexual assault charges and released him 11 months ago. Several other sexual harassment lawsuits were settled by the insurer against his will.

Cosby will not testify after the judge decides that he can sue the Fifth Amendment. And he has no plans to leave his home in Pennsylvania to attend a trial in a small courthouse in Santa Monica. Cosby’s representatives say glaucoma has blinded him and made his journey very difficult.

The Associated Press usually does not name people who say they have been sexually abused unless they are made public like Huth.
