In New Jersey, actor and visual artist Lili Bernard sued Bill Cosby Thursday, accusing the disgraced actor of drugging and raping her in 1990. Bernard has spoken publicly about her case but, until recently, was not able to file a suit due to New Jersey’s statute of limitations. A reform enacted in 2019 opened a two-year window to bring cases of sexual assault regardless of when they happened. Bernard says Cosby was her mentor and promised to help prepare her for a guest-starring role on “The Cosby Show” when he drugged and assaulted her at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City. Sixty survivors have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault, but he was released from jail in June after a court overturned his conviction on a technicality.
