Court Throws Out Hearing On Lawsuit Against Bill Cosby

By Published January 04, 2018

Former actress Katherine McKee’s request for a full-court hearing on a defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby.

A three-judge panel of the first U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled against her in October, now a federal appeals court won’t rehear the case filed against Bill Cosby by a woman who said he raped her decades ago.

McKee said Cosby defamed her in a letter his lawyer sent to the New York Daily News demanding a retraction of a story about McKee’s allegations. Cosby’s lawyers said the letter was protected by the first amendment.

Katherine McKee was among dozens of women who went public with allegations against Cosby, allegations he denied.

A separate defamation lawsuit filed by seven other women is also pending in Massachusetts.
