MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Pa. (YC) — The former Montgomery County District Attorney is taking a swing at Andrea Constand, a Cosby accuser who wound up confusing a jury over the summer when they were unable to reach a decision.

Andrea Constand attempted to press charges against the world-famous comedian in 2005, alleging that he sexually assaulted her in his Elkins Park estate.

Bruce Castor, the former district attorney found that the case against Cosby did not have sufficient evidence to proceed with criminal charges and closed the case.

In 2015 Castor’s opponent, Kevin Steele, ran several television ads criticizing Castor’s handling of the Cosby Investigation.

Ironically, Castor retained prominent Philadelphia Attorney James Beasley Jr., the man Temple University named their law school after.

“She was trying to gain a tactical advantage with the election in order to get Kevin Steele to put in so that she could get Cosby prosecuted,” Beasley said of Constand.

Castor filed a personal injury claim against Andrea Constand in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas, seeking more than $50,000.00 in damages.

Constand hires attorney Delores Troiani who filed a motion to seal details of the case to ensure that no sensitive or personal information about Constand is made public.

The judge presiding over the civil case ruled that a temporary seal will be ordered, giving Constand’s legal team some time to prepare an argument as to why portions of the case should remain sealed.

Cosby’s first Criminal trial on charges of aggravated indecent assault ended with a hung jury after ten days of deliberation and a five day trial.

Castor was a key witness in the case as he signed a binding non-prosecution agreement with Cosby, which defense attorney Brian McMonagle unsuccessfully argued should be sufficient grounds for Judge Steven O’Neill to dismiss the case.

Kevin Steele was criticized by constituents in Montgomery County for filing to retry Cosby, which will come out of taxpayer dollars.

… a side note, Constand testified that she didn’t know how to press criminal charges which is why she didn’t call the police immediately. However, she is definitely savvy with how civil cases work given how fast she retained an attorney this time around.
