Something is just bizarre with this. Anyone that has seen Judge Judy knows that verbal agreements aren't worth anything. Lawyers especially know this.
I dunno about all this. Couldn't the same lawsuits be thrown at rock bands like Motley Crue, Poison, Van Halen, Guns N Roses etc by some women who chose to make poor decisions earlier in their life by going backstage after the show & partying it up with the band?!
Would we feel the same sympathy towards those accusers & same level of hate towards the bands?
I'm thinking there'd be thousands of lawsuits filed. Surprised it hasn't happened yet, TBH.
The allegations against Cosby go beyond 'partying with the band'.
If you knew anything about half the sh!t Motley Crue probably did backstage, you'd know it went farrr beyond "partying with the band" also.

If there are specific criminal allegations that have been made, that's something to discuss. An incredibly vague "if you knew anything about probable events" doesn't cut it for me.
Someone, either Cosby or someone on his staff, made an excellent choice in hiring McMonagle.

Cosby switching lawyers in civil cases around country
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby has replaced the law firm overseeing civil litigation around the country linked to accusations he drugged and molested women. Liner LLP, known for its work in entertainment law, is replacing lawyers with the powerhouse litigation firm Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt confirmed Monday. Both firms are based in Los Angeles.

Litigation department chairwoman Angela Agrusa will now represent Cosby in the defamation and sex-assault lawsuits. Several women have sued Cosby for branding them liars in lawsuits filed in Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and California. Cosby has countersued some of them.
Agrusa, in a statement, said she did not want to try the cases in the media. She said Cosby "deserve(s) representation to ensure that justice does not yield to news cycles and soundbites." "Trying Mr. Cosby in a court of public opinion — as imbalanced media coverage promotes — runs directly counter to our judicial system's most fundamental guarantees of fairness under the law," she said.
The Liner firm currently represents singer Blake Shelton in a defamation case against a celebrity magazine. The firm also defended the doctor charged with overprescribing painkillers to the late model Anna Nicole Smith.
Quinn Emanuel may stay involved in the criminal sex-assault case heading to trial in suburban Philadelphia, Wyatt said. The firm's Christopher Tayback last week argued for the charges to be dismissed or for Cosby to be granted a new preliminary hearing to weigh the evidence. The trial judge denied the motion.
Honestly it's nothing more than hubris to think that other than a Philadelphia lawyer, and McMonagle is among the best, will be necessary to help one's case.
Honesty and Lawyer should not be use in the same sentence?
COSBY's attorney states:
"Trying Mr. Cosby in a court of public opinion — as imbalanced media coverage promotes — runs directly counter to our judicial system's most fundamental guarantees of fairness under the law."
IN HIS LAWYER JIVE THAT MEANS: (Cosby = Cause in jive talk)
Hey Jive people this is THE "CAUSE" and he is a Billionaire and maybe he had many women by slipping ludes in their drinks to have unwanted sex, BUT this is the CAUSE!
SO YOU BETTER find his ass innocent be'cause THIS PUDDING MAN IS the CAUSE!
OH, never MIND that there might have been one or two underage ones, the statue of limitations is over CHUMPS!.
MY NEW LAWYER is now a Woman!
I sometimes get the feeling that his lawyers' strategy is to run out the clock on the trial until Bill is safely ensconced in his grave.

Next time you consider how to avoid jury duty, instead consider yourself lucky. This June, twelve Pittsburghers will be abducted to Montgomery County and sequestered there for the duration of what will likely be a longish trial. I hear Norristown is lovely in the summer.
