Louisa Moritz – the actress who recently claimed that Bill Cosby raped her by forcefully thrusting his third leg into her mouth – is now trying to gather her fellow rape accusers for a class action lawsuit against the comedian.
As ENTmania! reported, more than 6 different women came out with their own versions of how Cosby raped or sexually harassed them decades ago after show performances. Cosby has since denied the accusations, asking the public to ‘fact check’.
But Moritz – who claims she was assaulted by Cosby in her dressing room shortly before her Tonight Show appearance in 1971 – says she is interviewing lawyers in Los Angeles in search of one who can file a class action lawsuit. She says she wants a minimum of 9 women to join her, and already, she has started contacting some of them.
In the eyes of law experts, Moritz will lose the suit because the statutes of limitations (the maximum time within which someone can file a lawsuit – 10 years in the US) has long expired. But according to TMZ, she has already been advised that she can still sue if the reason why she waited so long to file was due to a repressed memory. On her own part, Moritz claims she blocked the memory of the assault but it was awakened by the stories of other women who said Cosby assaulted them.
We’ll wait and see how this one plays out.
