Lawyers: Cosby's Drugs-sex Admission Could Help Women's Suit

Bill Cosby's admission that he obtained quaaludes to give young women he was pursuing for sex could boost defamation claims lodged by his accusers. That's according to the women's lawyers. The development came after The Associated Press reported on newly released court documents. In sworn testimony unsealed Monday, Cosby admitted that he gave the now-banned sedative to at least one of his accusers and to unnamed others. His lawyer interfered before he could answer deposition questions in 2005 about how many women were given drugs and whether they knew about it. The 77-year-old Cosby has been accused by more than two dozen women of sexual misconduct dating back more than four decades. He has never been charged with a crime, and the statute of limitations on most of the accusations has expired.
