Cosby Retrial Moves Toward Closing Arguments as Defense Rests

Bill Cosby’s defense team lost their motion to have parts of a key witness’ previous deposition read to the jury during the comedian’s retrial on Monday morning.

The defense had hoped that Sheri Williams would be a key witness for their allegation that Cosby accuser Andrea Constand was setting the comedian up with her accusations against him. Williams was reportedly unreachable and unresponsive to subpoenas, so Justice Steven T. O’Neill struck down the last-ditch measure from the comedian’s defense team to have portions of Williams’ deposition read in court.

Instead, the defense called a pilot and aviation expert Douglas Moss, and Roslyn Yarborough, an assistant to Cosby’s late agent at William Morris, to the stand. Moss and Yarborough were called upon to testify regarding the stringency of the schedules and itineraries filed on Cosby’s behalf by staff during the time of his alleged sexual assault on Constand. Cosby’s attorneys attempted to make the case that he wasn’t in Pennsylvania during January 2004 when the incident allegedly took place.

As Cosby has also corroborated many of the events in Constand’s account, the prosecution needed only remind the court of this during cross-examination.

With that, the defense rested their case and closing arguments in what could be a landmark trial for the era are expected to begin Tuesday morning.

Cosby is being re-tried on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, stemming from former Temple University employee Constand’s accusation that the comedian molested her in 2004 at his home outside of Philadelphia.

Stan Lee Accused of Sexual Misconduct by Massage Therapist in New Lawsuit

Comic book legend Stan Lee is being sued by a massage therapist who accuses the 95-year-old of acting in an inappropriate manner during a massage session.

In the suit filed Monday, Maria Carballo says she was summoned to Lee’s suite at the Hyatt Regency hotel in Chicago last year to perform massage therapy on Lee.

According to the suit, about 30 minutes into the session, Carballo “noticed that Lee began to fondle himself as she performed the massage.”

The suit says Carballo instructed Lee to roll onto his back in an effort to diffuse the situation, and noticed that the sheets Lee had been lying on “were wet,” but she decided to give Lee the benefit of the doubt.

According to the suit, the massage continued without any issues until Carballo began massaging Lee’s quadriceps, after which Lee began “to moan and groan,” at which point Carballo decided to end the massage.

Lee complained that the massage session was supposed to last two hours, the lawsuit says, and Carballo agreed to charge for only an hour. However, the suit says, the next day Carballo’s employer called her, saying that Lee had relayed an apology and assuring her “that there would be no further incidents.”

Carballo returned to Lee’s suite to again provide massage therapy, the suit says, but after again massaging his quadriceps, “Plaintiff observed that Lee was once again moaning.” According to the suit, Carballo immediately stopped the massage, and that Lee “stood up from the massage table, completely naked, and became angry with Plaintiff.”

“Plaintiff begged Lee to put on his clothes on and to let her leave, but he became angrier and demanded that she continue the massage,” the suit reads.

Carballo says she agreed to continue the massage for another 10 minutes, this time with a Shiatsu massage performed with her feet, and that, after a few minutes, “Lee grabbed Plaintiff’s foot and moved it against his penis and scrotum.”

“When Plaintiff freed herself from his grip, she promptly gathered her belongings,” the suit reads.

Alleging assault, battery and other counts, the suit is seeking a judgment “in excess of $50,000, plus an award of punitive damages, and attorneys’ fees and costs as permitted under the statute.”

TheWrap has reached out to Lee’s spokesperson for comment on the suit.

Scott Baio’s ‘Charles in Charge’ Co-Star Rejects Nicole Eggert’s ‘Inappropriate’ Relationship Accusation

After Nicole Eggert accused Scott Baio of forcing their former “Charles in Charge” co-star Josie Davis to remove her pants for him when she was 13 years old, Davis has come out to say no way.

Davis said Eggert’s accusation is “completely false.”

On Wednesday, Eggert — who has previously made sexual misconduct accusations against Baio on her own behalf — told the actor’s fans on Twitter to, “Ask Scott Baio why he demanded Josie Davis pull her pants down when she was 13…”

Though Eggert deleted the tweet, Davis had already seen it and responded in kind on Thursday.

“I only had a positive and professional relationship with him,” Davis wrote, after denying any “inappropriate” behavior occurred between her and Baio. “Out of respect for those involved I will not be responding further on the matter.”

Back in January, Eggert accused Baio of molesting her when she was a minor, and then took her accusations to the police, meeting with the Los Angeles Police Department in February to say that Baio sexually abused her when she was a minor.

“From the beginning, Nicole Eggert’s inconsistent stories have proven her claims to be untrue,” Brian Glicklich, a spokesperson for Baio, said in a statement to TheWrap on Friday, following Davis’ defense of Baio. “Now she has tripped over her words once again, and it is time to recognize this charade for what it is. Scott is profoundly grateful to Josie Davis for her integrity and decency.”

See Eggert’s now-deleted Twitter exchange and Davis’ tweet below.

The allegation that @NicoleEggert made on Twitter saying @ScottBaio was inappropriate with me is completely false. I only had a positive and a professional relationship with him. Out of respect for those involved I will not be responding further on the matter.

Bill Cosby Retrial: Comedian’s Expert Witness Jokes He’s Unlicensed, Except for His ‘Driver’s License’

On a day when only expert witnesses testified in Bill Cosby’s retrial, prosecutor Stewart Ryan thoroughly grilled the defense’s toxicology expert Dr. Harry Milman on Thursday. But Dr. Milman’s knowledge of the forensic side of toxicology seemed only tangential, as he at one point cited a Viagra-using perpetrator as an instance of “drug-induced sexual assault.”

Ryan was able to coax admissions out of Milman such as that he’s currently unlicensed, except for a “driver’s license,” Milman joked, and that he has only written three articles for publication regarding his toxicological studies that weren’t about cancer.

Milman has, however, written two fiction books — oddly enough, about a forensic toxicologist who is called as an expert witness.

Also Read: Bill Cosby Legal Team’s Bid for a Mistrial Once Again Denied

In what was probably Ryan’s most merciless cross-examination of the retrial thus far, he continually put Milman at a stammering loss for words regarding his own credentials and explanations of why he testified that Benadryl wasn’t a hypnotic, even though one of his very own citations included a sentence about how new studies are emerging that Benadryl’s active ingredient, diphenhydramine, is in fact being used as a hypnotic.

Citing that Quaaludes, a drug that Cosby admitted to administering to women for sex in the past, had become illegal by 1984, Milman also seemed bewildered when confronted with the fact that prosecutor Kevin Steele’s own office seized “thousands” of illegally manufactured Quaalude pills in a local 2002 case.

Earlier Thursday, Cosby’s defense team’s motion for a mistrial — the team’s fifth such attempt — was denied. Cosby’s team contended that the prosecution’s cross-examination of their witness, Marguerite Jackson, “tainted” the jury by implying that the comedian’s lawyers had “created” her statement.

Judge Steven T. O’Neill struck down the motion as having “simply no grounds for a mistrial” and being raised too late. He also scolded the defense for having just one witness ready for the day — the same day the court would hear testimony from the prosecution’s final witness. Both will be called to testify as expert witnesses.

Cosby is being re-tried on three counts of aggravated indecent assault, stemming from former Temple University employee Andrea Constand’s accusation that the comedian molested her in 2004 at his home outside of Philadelphia.

Cosby’s initial trial in the matter ended in a mistrial in July 2017 after the jury was unable to reach a verdict following five days of deliberations.

Cosby Retrial: Police Officer Pushes Back at Comedian’s Lawyer Over Accuser ‘Inconsistencies’

Sergeant Richard Schaffer of the Cheltenham, Pennsylvania, police department took the stand on Day 7 of Bill Cosby’s retrial on Tuesday and refused to give the comedian’s lawyer Tom Mesereau an inch during his cross-examination.

Mesereau repeatedly attempted to get Schaffer to state that alleged victim Andrea Constand’s account of her experiences with Cosby suffered from “inconsistencies.” At one point, Schaffer told Mesereau point-blank, “That is not a correct characterization” and even took the rap himself for one discrepancy in the report, testifying, “There are some mistakes there, but that is the police statement that’s being said.”

Later, a fed-up Mesereau asked the officer if he himself was present in a hotel room with Constand and Cosby at the Foxwoods Resort Casino and Schaffer didn’t miss a beat, joking, “Things would have gotten weird if that’s what was going on.”

Mesereau continued to try and push the officer into stating that Constand had called Cosby 100 to 200 times while Schaffer patiently explained all the missing information needed to “quantify” that data, such as intermittent calls from other numbers and dropped calls. Mesereau insisted “it’s a simple question” at one point, and Schaffer simply responded, “It’s not a simple question.”

Meanwhile,the court also heard transcripts of Bill Cosby’s own past statements to police in the recently reopened investigations, including several lines of questioning regarding the medication he administered to Andrea Constand. Cosby insisted it was was Benadryl, although during a phone call with Constand and her mother Gianna, he didn’t say what it was when asked.

Cosby explained in his deposition to police that he felt Gianna was “attacking” him.

“I’m on the phone listening to two people, and I’m thinking her mother is gonna say I’m a dirty old man,” Cosby was quoted as saying.

“I wanted to know what pills he gave me and why he did that to me,” Constand told the court.

The former Temple University employee testified that she attended a group dinner at a Chinese restaurant that Cosby invited her to in March 2004 and drove back to his house afterwards for a visit of “less than five minutes,” during which she asked him what pills he gave her during the alleged incident two months prior.

Ron Jeremy Case Under Review by LA District Attorney

Famed adult-industry performer Ron Jeremy has come under the scrutiny of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office.

A spokesman for the District Attorney told TheWrap on Wednesday that it is reviewing a case regarding Jeremy, which was presented to the D.A.’s office in December.

While the spokesman could not comment on the details of the case, TMZ reported that it’s a sexual battery case involving an alleged groping incident in the bathroom of West Hollywood’s famed Sunset Strip hangout Rainbow Bar and Grill.

TheWrap has reached out to a representative for Jeremy for comment on the case.

Accusations of sexual misconduct are nothing new for Jeremy. A Rolling Stone investigative piece published in November detailed multiple such accusations.

Jeremy denied having non-consensual sexual interactions in a statement to Rolling Stone, telling the publication in a statement, “These allegations are pure lies or buyers remorse … I have never and would never rape anyone. All serious allegations have been investigated by police and dismissed by judges, as have most of the accusations of ‘groping.’ I have never been charged nor spent one day in court for any of this.”

Nonetheless, following the accusations, Jeremy was banned from the AVN Adult Entertainment Expo and Awards in January, though Jeremy told TheWrap that he didn’t plan to attend the Las Vegas event this year anyway.

“I was not planning on attending the AVN’s this year anyway as I’m filming 2 movies and performing stand up comedy all week,” Jeremy said. “All serious allegations are false. The truth with [sic] come out soon.”
