A group of women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual abuse have called on the comedian to put up $100 million to pay potential damages.
Gloria Allred, a high profile Los Angeles-based lawyer representing at least three alleged victims, called on Cosby to enter a mediation process in which money would be paid to anyone who could prove their claim in front of a panel of retired judges.
She said: “If Mr Cosby is not willing to subject himself to scrutiny in a court of law he should agree to place $100 million into a fund, and invite those who claim they are victims to appear before a panel to decide the merits of each claim.
No, let’s not get into a discussion about whether these allegations are true or not. Instead look at the amazing nature of that offer.
We’ve no legal case whatsoever so damn the law and gives us $100 million anyway.
Difficult to resist such an attractive offer really….
And purely as a matter of entirely personal opinion my take is that anyone who hires Alred as their lawyer has no case to begin with.
