Woman sues Cosby, alleges assault as teen

Bill Cosby was sued Tuesday by a Southern California woman who claims the comedian molested her in a bedroom of the Playboy Mansion around 1974, when she was 15.

Judy Huth's sexual-battery lawsuit does not specify how much she is seeking from Cosby, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct in recent weeks.

Huth's suit in Los Angeles Superior Court is the first Cosby has faced claiming sexual abuse since 2005.

It states that Cosby took Huth and a 16-year-old friend to the Playboy Mansion, where he allegedly forced Huth to perform a sex act on him with his hand.

An e-mail sent to Cosby's attorney was not immediately returned.

Huth claims severe distress and says she discovered its impact on her within the last three years, thus allowing the suit under California law. - AP

The owners of the lynx were out of town and had made arrangements with the woman to care for it, police said. When officers arrived in Buckhead, the woman was bleeding from her head. The owners, who have eight other exotic cats, have a state breeding license and are in compliance with Georgia law, officials said. - AP
