One Of The Women Suing Bill Cosby For Defamation Is Seeking To Have The Comedian's Deposition From A 2005 Sexual Assault Lawsuit Unsealed Because She Believes The Actor May Have Confessed To His Bad Behaviour While Under Oath.
The former THE COSBY SHOW star is fighting accusations of sexual abuse and inappropriate behaviour from over 20 women, while three of his reported victims recently filed suit, claiming the funnyman and his legal team defamed them by calling them liars when they originally went public with their allegations in the 1970s.
Now Tamara Green, who is pursuing her case at the U.S. District Court in Springfield, Massachusetts, has lodged new papers asking for access to Cosby's confidential testimony in a 2005 suit brought against the veteran by Andrea Constand, a former employee at the actor's alma mater, Temple University.
Constand, who claimed the star drugged and sexually assaulted her in 2004, included testimony from 13 so-called Jane Does who also claimed to have endured similar experiences with Cosby in her civil suit.

Comedian Hannibal Buress Received Death Threats After Accusing Bill Cosby Of Rape During A Stand-up Routine Last Year (14).
Buress has been credited with sparking the ongoing claims of sexual assault against the beloved TV star by referencing Cosby's past accusations during a routine last summer (14).
Since then, over 20 women have come forward with stories about sex encounters with THE COSBY SHOW star, and the stand-up comedian admits he became a target of some of Cosby's most loyal fans.
Buress says, "It was definitely a weird situation... The weirdest thing about getting a death threat from a male bodybuilder... on Facebook is when you click on his profile and see you have one mutual friend. And then having to hit your friend up and say, 'Hey man, can you tell your buddy to stop saying that he's gonna murder me?'.
Jennifer Lee Pryor has revealed her husband and Cosby were never friends, adding Cosby always thought Pryor "worked dirty" onstage.
During a recent appearance on the Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend podcast, Pryor said, "Richard was dirty on the outside, but he was a good person. He was clean on the inside. Bill hated Richard because he 'worked dirty'. Bill worked clean, so therefore, you know... Bill's just a f**king hypocrite, and dirty on the inside.
