Dickinson sues Cosby for defamation over denials made by the comedian’s representatives after she accused him of raping her in 1982. She seeks unspecified damages on defamation, false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and claims she has been further victimized and her reputation has suffered because of denials by Cosby’s attorney that the comedian drugged and raped her in a Lake Tahoe, California, hotel room. Suit:
Cosby knows that he drugged and raped Ms Dickinson. He knew that calling her rape disclosure a lie was a false statement.
