Judy Huth filed a lawsuit against The Cosby Show star in December (14) accusing the 78 year old of getting her drunk and sexually assaulting her at a party at the infamous Los Angeles house in 1975, when she was aged 15.

Cosby's lawyers have attempted to get the civil suit dismissed but their appeal was denied once more at the California Supreme Court on Wednesday (22Jul15), and Huth's attorney Gloria Allred expects Cosby to face a deposition hearing in the case within the next 30 days.

She tells Reuters, "We are looking forward to Mr. Cosby answering questions under oath at his deposition... It's a very big victory."

Huth, now in her 50s, also filed criminal charges against Cosby but they were dismissed as the statue of limitations had expired.

She is one of more than 40 women to accuse Cosby of sexual abuse. The comedian has denied the claims through his lawyer and has not been charged with any crime.

The star has faced questioning before in a sexual assault case, which was settled out of court in 2006. His deposition from the suit, filed by Andrea Constand, was made public earlier this month (Jul15) and revealed Cosby had confessed to buying sedatives to give to women he wanted to sleep with.
