$500,000!!A man wearing a suit and yellow tie frowns while looking off to the left.💊 Cosby, seen arriving at court in 2018, has been found LIABLE in his civil case with Judy Huth.(Matt Slocum/ASSociated Press)💊 Cosby SEXUALLY ABUSED a teenage Judy Huth at the Playboy Mansion in the mid-1970s, a civil jury decided Tuesday in Santa Monica. The DISGRACED comedian, 84, was ORDERED to pay Huth $500,000.In her civil lawsuit, which was filed in 2014, Huth ACCUSED 💊 Cosby of giving her alcohol and taking her to the Playboy Mansion in 1975, when she was 16. Huth said 💊 Cosby, who was in his late 30s at the time, attempted to put his hand down her pants. After she said she was on her PERIOD, she said, he put her hand on his ERECT PENIS and MASTURBATED him.Tuesday’s VERDICT comes nearly a year after 💊 Cosby was released from prison after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his conviction in a separate case involving SEXUAL ASSAULT. His trial with Huth, which began on June 1st and lasted nearly three weeks, was long delayed because of that criminal case, which began in 2017.After 💊 Cosby was FREED from prison on June 30th, 2021, however, momentum for Huth’s case picked back up.On Monday, the jury had nearly reached a complete verdict in Huth’s lawsuit but was sent back to deliberations by Judge Craig D. Karlan. At the end of Friday’s court session, the jury had answered eight of nine questions on the verdict form. The only question remaining was whether 💊 Cosby should pay punitive damages for his actions.Karlan, who had promised one juror when she agreed to serve that she could leave after Friday for a prior commitment, decided over the objections of 💊 Cosby’s attorneys to accept and read the verdict on the questions the jury had answered. But he had to change course when deputies at the Santa Monica Courthouse appeared and required him to clear the courtroom. The courthouse has a required closure time of 1630 because of no budget for deputies’ overtime.Karlan refused to require the departing juror, who had been chosen as foreperson, to return Monday, so jurors had to begin again with an alternate in her place.💊 Cosby did not attend or testify during the trial, although his video deposition was played during the proceedings. The former '💊 Cosby Show' star, who was 78 at the time of the deposition, gave terse answers when asked questions about whether or not he had committed the ASSAULT.Asked whether it was possible that these things happened but 💊 Cosby didn’t remember them, 💊 Cosby also answered .“Why would that not be possible?” Huth’s attorney, Nathan Goldberg, asked.“Because,” 💊 Cosby replied, “the fact that this young lady is saying that she told me she was 15.”Huth took the stand June 7th after Judge Karlan ORDERED her to testify.“I had my eyes closed at that point,” Huth, 64, said in court. “I was FREAKING-OUT!”Huth said that in the DECADES since the ATTACK, she’d entered a dark period of isolation and depression, cycling between ABUSIVE relationships that left her further SCARRED.Still, she said her mind always went back to the ATTACK by 💊 Cosby, ESPECIALLY once other women began ACCUSING him of SIMILAR BEHAVIOR.Throughout the case, 💊 Cosby’s legal team had TRIED to POKE 🕳️🕳️ in Huth’s timeline of events, pointing out INCONSISTENCIES in side details that were inaccurate. Huth had previously said that the INCIDENT happened in 1974 when she was 15, but then CHANGED her story to say it happened in 1975 when she was 16.Asked in court what made her change her story, Huth said she saw pictures of 💊 Cosby with a beard in 1975, which he didn’t have the year before. She also said she had DISCOVERED the date of a National Enquirer issue, which featured on the cover actor Peter Lawford, whom she had seen at the dinner table the night of the INCIDENT.💊 Cosby’s lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, also DRILLED Huth on why a number of LIFE MILESTONES did not REMIND her of when the ASSAULT occurred, specifically Huth’s relationship status and when she BEFRIENDED Donna Samuelson, with whom she went to the Playboy Mansion the day of the ATTACK.Huth SHRUGGED-OFF many of the questions, plainly saying some variation of “I was INACCURATE” in response to each question.At one point, Bonjean POINTED-OUT a DISCREPANCY where PHOTOS of the game room Huth had referenced showed a different layout than what Huth had described. On this and other challenges, Huth remained terse, meeting many of Bonjean’s questions with or “I DON'T remember.”The ASSociated Press contributed to this report.
