‘Jane Does’ who testified in Cosby suit plan news conference

Bill Cosby

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two women who were “Jane Doe” witnesses in a 2005 lawsuit by Bill Cosby’s first accuser plan a news conference to react to excerpts from the comedian’s deposition in which he admitted giving at least one woman Quaaludes before sex.

Their lawyer, Gloria Allred, says she will announce the next step in the legal process for the women at the news conference Monday.

The pair testified in a lawsuit brought by Andrea Constand that alleged sexual battery by Cosby.

Constand’s lawyer argued that Cosby’s entire deposition should be made public because the comedian’s lawyers broke the confidentiality agreement that sealed the 2006 settlement.

Excerpts obtained by The Associated Press show Cosby admitting that he obtained Quaaludes in the 1970s so that he could give them to women he pursued for sex.
