Bill Cosby's spokesman says an insurance company has settled another defamation suit filed by an accuser, this one by model Janice Dickinson. Dickinson and lawyer Lisa Bloom have scheduled a press conference Thursday near Los Angeles. Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt says American International Group Inc. settled the case without Cosby's approval, as they've done with at least eight other women who say the comedian and his agent maligned them by denying their allegations.
Comedian Bill Cosby, who is serving a three and a half year jail sentence, on Tuesday appealed a Pennsylvania court's verdict that found him guilty of drugging and sexually assaulting a woman 15 years ago. "This filing is an important step in ensuring that Mr Cosby receives a hearing from a fair and impartial court," the actor's spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, said. "The Constitution guarantees that right to Mr Cosby -- and to all Americans -- and he looks forward to securing justice in the court of appeal," he said in a statement.
Cosby, serving a prison sentence for drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, reportedly asked his representatives to post the message.
"Please stop," read one comment in reaction to Cosby's post, though some fans cheered on the convicted star.
