Bill Cosby’s team says they will appeal Judy Huth’s ruling

After a civil jury found that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted Judy Huth in 1975 when she was a 16-year-old minor, Cosby’s team called the result a “stunning victory,” but vowed to appeal the $500,000 verdict.

Cosby spokesperson Andrew White reads a statement from Cosby spokesperson Andrew White: “Yesterday, actor and comedian Bill Cosby was awarded a stunning jury victory in a civil trial presented by Judy Huth.” “The jury decided to award Jodi Huth a $500,000 verdict, but voted 9-3 to not award Mrs. Huth any punitive damages.”

The trial revolved around allegations made by Heath, now 64, who Cosby accused of being offline and a friend of the Playboy mansion. Huth alleged that Cosby took her alone in a bedroom, pulled down his sweatpants and then grabbed her hand and used them to masturbate. On Tuesday, a jury found Cosby responsible for the sexual assault of Hoth as a teen, but did not award her punitive damages.

Cosby’s spokesperson says his attorney, Jennifer Bunjian, will appeal the ruling, and Huth will never get paid.

“In a few weeks, Attorney Jennifer Bunjian will be in the court of Judge Craig D. Carlan to appeal the $500,000 ruling, which means Ms. Huth will never get paid from Mr. Cosby and her estimated escalating legal bills ($3 million plus dollars) With Allred, Morocco & Goldberg will be outstanding for many years to come,” the statement continues. “Had the jury awarded Judy Huth punitive damages, it would have been in the region of $10 million plus dollars, which would have been a devastating loss to our legal efforts and to the Cosby family.”

Huth is represented by prominent lawyer and women’s rights activist Gloria Allred, who hailed the ruling as a win toward “real change,” and told reporters outside the courtroom on Tuesday that Cosby “should be held accountable and accountable for what he did ‘do her’.”

In response to Wyatt’s statement about Cosby’s “victory,” Allred said Cosby’s spokesman was wrong.

“Mr. Cosby’s spokesperson appears to be trying to snatch victory from Mr. Cosby’s jaws,” says Allred. diverse. “Miss. Huth has no legal bills for fees with my law firm. The $3 million legal bill presented by Mr. White appears to have been cited as a figment of his imagination. In turn, the $3 million might be the equivalent of Mr. Cosby. It was on Cosby. that was spent to hire countless attorneys over the years in his unsuccessful efforts to defend himself against Mrs. Hoth’s suit.”

Allred continues, referring to an old interview Cosby had with Oprah: “Many years ago, Mr. Cosby said in the news, ‘Believe a child when you say someone’s been flirting with her.'” The jury in Ms. Hoth proved they believed her by giving her $500,000 As compensation for damages. We are very proud of our customers’ courage, and our victory over Bill Cosby.”

The question that would have resulted in punitive damages asked the jurors whether Cosby had acted “with malice, oppression, or fraud.” During the deliberations, this became a sticking point for the jury, which had a hard time reaching agreement on this particular issue.

In his statement, Cosby’s spokesperson claimed that Cosby spoke briefly with two jurors after the verdict, who told him, “You don’t deserve to be in this court.” (Both jurors in which Cosby’s representative claimed to have been in contact with the comedian voted overwhelmingly in favor of him on all questions, and did not agree with a majority of the jury on questions regarding Cosby’s behavior as being harmful or sexually abusive.)

“Mr. Cosby and his team have always remained steadfast in his innocence and we have never played down the drain or the drain; but most importantly, we have stayed on top of the mountain of ethics, integrity, truth and facts,” says a Cosby spokesperson. “The Cosbys are grateful to those particular jurors who removed their bias and judged the evidence and facts in this case.”
