Bill Cosby Sued for 1969 Sexual Assault as Part of California’s Survivor Lookback Law

HeadlineJun 02, 2023

Bill Cosby has been sued by another woman for sexual assault. Victoria Valentino says Cosby raped her and sexually assaulted her friend at his home in 1969 after drugging them. Valentino, then an actor and singer, filed the lawsuit under a new California “lookback” law that gives sexual assault survivors a limited window to file civil suits that exceed the normal statute of limitations. Cosby, who has been accused of rape and other sexual crimes by dozens of women, was allowed to walk free from prison two years ago on a technicality over his 2018 sexual assault conviction.
