This came just as a US federal judge threw out parts of a claim filed by Bill Cosby against one of his accusers, her mother, two lawyers and the publisher of the National Enquirer.
Judge Eduardo Robreno said Cosby could not sue Andrea Constand, her mother or lawyers for speaking to investigators about her accusations.
The comedian claimed they had violated a confidential settlement agreement but Judge Robreno allowed several other elements of Mr Cosby's claim to stand.
Cosby has a degenerative eye condition called keratoconus, a condition that causes the eye’s cornea to bulge. With this health challenge, Cosby’s alleged victims may take some solace in the fact that he’s in his own personal hell.
Cosby’s sight has been slowly fading for some time, in January, Monique Pressley, another of his lawyers, said of his strange appearance in his mug shot, “He’s a 79-year-old blind man who they’ve chosen to charge. That’s not a defense to a charge, that’s just a fact.” It explains why he is led into court by lawyers and reps on both of his arms. Since then, the condition has become far more severe.
