Los Angeles: Five women in Los Angeles have filed a lawsuit against the channel NBC and actor Bill Cosby under a New York state law that temporarily suspends the statute of limitations for old claims of sexual assault. Women alleged on Monday that Cosby raped them or forced them to perform sexual acts.
All four allegations date back to the late 1980s or 1990s, when the actor was famous as the star of “The Cosby Show” on NBC, while the fifth allegation involves former Hollywood executive Cyndra Ladd, who accused Cosby in 1969. He was accused of raping her.
