Gag Order Denied In Cosby Case

Attorneys for Bill Cosby were denied a gag order in a lawsuit against the entertainer that alleges he drugged and sexually molested a woman.

U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno denied the motion in a Philadelphia courtroom June 2nd.

He agreed that the lack of a gag order to keep parties from discussing information during discovery could embarrass Cosby, but believes public scrutiny would assist the court in obtaining a just result.

Cosby is accused of molesting a former Temple University employee in January 2004. Plaintiff’s attorneys were also denied a motion to keep the names of other alleged victims a secret.
