Bill Cosby’s Legal Team Claims His Eye Condition Is A Reason To Dismiss Beverly Johnson’s Allegations
Bill Cosby is under the legal scrutiny for the past few years. Now, he is countering the charges against him filed by women who claim sexual assault. The prominent one among them, Beverly Johnson remains firm with her legal battle against him as she appears in interviews or whenever asked for statements.
In a recent turn of events, the legal team of Cosby is arguing his worsening eye problem will definitely inhibit him from doing such acts. A source who revealed to Radar said, “Bill doesn’t want to make an issue of his eye condition, but it’s a real concern to his family and friends. I think his pals and family are greatly alarmed at his bug-eyed appearance.”
In the statement from the lawsuit, it emphasized, “Mr. Cosby has suffered from a degenerative eye condition for years which has steadily worsened recently to the point that he is for over a year has been legally and functionally blind.”
Johnson has filed charges against Cosby whom she stated that drugged her first before he did his indecent actions towards her. She is a famous and a favorite model way back in the 70s and 80s decade.
The legal team of Cosby countered these allegations against him by filing a defamation lawsuit on her. They believe she is fabricating all these stories so she will be able to get the attention for the autobiography she is offering to the public.
In a report from Mirror, she is included among the several women who have bravely surfaced in the recent years who have the similar claims against him. A representative for Cosby, Monique Pressly, issued a statement and said, “Mr. Cosby states that he never drugged defendant and her story is a lie.”
Is it Bill Cosby or Beverly Johnson who’s telling the truth? The justice system will soon reveal the answers.
