Bill Cosby accusers call for full deposition release
Bill Cosby accusers call for full deposition release

A recently uncovered court record from 2005 reveals that comedian Bill Cosby had admitted to have given sedatives to the women he had sex with, clearly exposing his predatory behaviour. For about a year, he has been accused by over a dozen women for drugging and raping them.

Cosby had reportedly admitted to seducing young women a decade ago in a court deposition at a Philadelphia hotel. In the deposition, it was made clear that Cosby had used his fame and position to entice the victims and then sedated them with Quaalude pills, before having his way with them, according to The New York Times.

"I think I'm a pretty decent reader of people and their emotions in these romantic sexual things, whatever you want to call them," Cosby is quoted as saying in the deposition.

The parties that filed the case against Cosby in 2005, including Andrea Constand - against whom his team reportedly released a defaming statement via ABC News - was unable to release the memorandum of the deposition, due to a confidentiality agreement in the settlement. However, the transcript itself was not sealed and is publicly available. It can be viewed in "Document in Cosby Case", uploaded by The New York Times. 

Donna Motsinger and Kristina Ruehli, two of the 13 women in the 2005 case, admitted that they were elated with the publishing of the deposition and said that this was only the tip of the iceberg and this will open a Pandora's box, which will help strengthen the case against Cosby.
