What The? See Why Cosby’s Insurance Company May Have To Pay His Accuser
As the saga continues in the ever-growing case of Bill Cosby’s sexual assault accusers, there is one accuser that, IF he’s found guilty in a court of law, Cosby will probably not have to pay because a judge presiding over model, Janice Dickinson’s, sexual assault case against Cosby has just decided that Cosby’s insurance company, AIG will have to pay up instead. That sounds pretty weird, but here is what has just been reported: (via TMZ)
‘AIG insurance company tried to get a judge to say Cosby’s alleged misdeeds are not covered under the policy, which excludes personal injury claims “arising out of … sexual molestation, misconduct or harassment.”
Dickinson claims Cosby drugged and assaulted her in 1982 and made a joke about the allegations in January that caused her emotional distress.
But a judge has now ruled the exclusion clause is ambiguous. Frankly, the judge’s reasoning is…the words “arising out of” are ambiguous.
AIG and Cosby are still fighting other issues, but this one’s a big win for the comedian.’
When will this end? We have no idea, but from the looks of it, Cosby has a very long legal battle ahead of him. Earlier today (11-13-2015) four more women have just joined a pending defamation lawsuit against Cosby, claiming that their reputations have been damaged by Cosby after they came out with their sexual abuse claims against him. They say that their reputations were ruined by Cosby’s representatives by publicly referring to them as liars and as a result, they are seeking compensation.
Only time will tell what the truth actually is in these cases, but in the meantime, we’ll just sit back and wait for all of the facts to proven in court.
