    A woman who appeared on The Cosby Show’s final season claims in court documents filed in New Jersey that the comic icon sexually violated her in an Atlantic City hotel room, and Bill Cosby’s spokesperson Andrew Wyatt told Your Content “this is just another attempt to abuse the legal process”

    “These look back provisions are unconstitutional and they are a sheer violation of an individual’s Constitutional Rights and denies that individual of their Due Process.” Bill Cosby’s spokesperson and right-hand-man Andrew Wyatt told Your Content. “This is just another attempt to abuse the legal process, by opening up the flood gates for people, who never presented an ounce of evidence, proof, truth and/or facts, in order to substantiate their alleged allegations.”

    According to court documents filed on Thursday, Lili Bernard alleged sexual abuse, assault and battery against Cosby after the pair met on the set of The Cosby Show in 1990, ABC Los Angeles reported.

    In a scene straight out of a Hollywood film—on Jun. 16, 2017 Bernard took to the courthouse steps in suburban Philadelphia to accuse the comedian of raping her while she was a guest star on his 1980s hit TV series ‘The Cosby Show’ and read a Bible passage aloud to Cosby supporters. When Bernard realized she supporters outnumbered protesters, she burst into tears and hugged a nearby confidant.

    “Mr. Cosby continues to maintain steadfast in his innocence and will vigorously fight ANY alleged allegations waged against him and is willing and able to take this fight to the highest court in these United States of America.” Wyatt continues.

    “Also, back on July 1, 2015, the New Jersey Prosecutor terminated the investigation against Mr. Cosby and decided not to move forward with Lili Bernard claims, who was represented by Gloria Allred.

    “Whatever Ms. Bernard and Ms. Allred was claiming was far beyond the statue of limitations and they made a failed attempt to gain ANY resolve from the Atlantic City Police Department and the New Jersey District Attorney’s office.”

    As Your Content readers were first to learn on Jun. 30, Pennsylvania’s highest court deemed comedian Bill Cosby did not receive a fair trial and ordered his immediate release from prison. What’s more, the panel of justices barred a future retrial.

    As Your Content readers know, prosecutors tangled in the Bill Cosby trial threw their boss under the bus after admitting under oath to using questionable tactics to secure a conviction—including a groundbreaking claim that the comedian was tricked into a phony immunity deal to self-incriminate himself after giving cops ‘an exculpatory account’ of what happened at his Cheltenham estate with Andrea Constand. – Advertisement –

    “What will the Commonwealth now pay Cosby for its behavior.” Norm Pattis—America’s most controversial trial attorney previously told Your Content. “The prosecutors behaved like double-dealing skunks.”

    Your Content readers were first to know when the comic was granted leave to appeal his conviction for in June, when Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court sensationally overturned an earlier denial by the state’s Superior Court.

    The Supreme Court agreed to review two aspects of the actor’s case.

    The seven judges reviewed Montgomery County Judge Steven T. O’Neill’s decision to let prosecutors call five other accusers to testify about long-ago encounters that never resulted in charges or police reports.

    And they reviewed the questionable judge’s decision to allow the jury to hear unsubstantiated testimony from two-decade old depositions taken out of context at trial.

    Judge Steven O’Neill has never explained why he allowed five women to testify in the second Cosby trial after allowing only one to do so at his first trial in 2017.

    On Dec. 1–when it came to the Commonwealth’s rebuttal of the defense’s points of appeal attorney—Adrianne Jappe did not get through her opening comments before the judges began interrupting and interrogating her on the relevance of the five prior bad acts witnesses.

    Justice Dougherty pointed out that one of the women – Lise-Lotte Lublin – had ‘no actual recollection of sexual contact’ but merely of losing consciousness.

    Jappe angered members of the court after instructing them not ‘to consider’ statistics in their decision making, according to an aide of one of the honorable justices.

    Your Content exclusively revealed on Oct. 22 that Police in Arizona are stunned after a Pennsylvania prosecutor accommodated a fugitive prostitute to testify against the comedian in 2018.

    Cosby, 83, has spent the past two years in a prison outside of Philadelphia after a jury convicted him in 2018 of three aggravated indecent assault counts—and the court deemed the elderly inmate a ‘sexually violent predator’ for posing an ‘imminent safety risk to women.’

    From the moment the first witness took the stand, Your Content readers were spot-on in their questioning of trial tactics and backhanded deals cut amid the retrialgoing as far as filing a motion to intervene in the trial after politicians tried to silence our publication and banish Your Content reporters from the proceedings.

    But we are not done. If the court has proven to be just, it has also reinforced how few voices in American media can be trusted to listen to you.

    This exceptional moment serves as a call to action for Your Content. We refuse to fall in line with the out-of-touch media establishment—and we will not accept the ‘official’ version of events as told by news agencies that side with power and ignore the untold stories.

    Your Content will continue to deliver the truth, and not the spin of politicians or those who failed you.

    As the world of professional story-tellers spend the next several months trying to explain their embarrassment, while the lamestream media is held to the fire, we proudly declare: Your Content is the people’s paper, and the only publication that power fears.

    Cosby, 83, has spent the past two years in a prison outside of Philadelphia after a jury convicted him in 2018 of three aggravated indecent assault counts—and the court deemed the elderly inmate a ‘sexually violent predator’ for posing an ‘imminent safety risk to women.’

    As Your Content readers know, Judge Steven O’Neill assigned himself the privilege of presiding over the Cosby trial.
