Bill Cosby Reportedly Close to Settling Out of Court with Another Accuser


Bill Cosby is facing criminal charges in the 2004 Andrea Constand case, but when it comes to Chloe Goins’ lawsuit stemming from her alleged 2008 assault at the Playboy Mansion — the comedian is reportedly nearing a secret settlement.

via TMZ:

Chloe Goins has sued Cosby for sexual assault, claiming he drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008. Goins filed suit October 6th … but something curious has happened, or should we say, hasn’t happened.

We checked the file and there’s been absolutely no activity in the case. In fact, Cosby was never served with the lawsuit. The court requires service within 90 days, which means Chloe is days away from the deadline. If Cosby isn’t served, the case will almost certainly be dismissed.

Sources connected to the case tell TMZ, the reason why nothing has happened in the case is because both sides have been talking settlement, although no agreement has been reached.

A settlement could be critical, because the L.A. County D.A. is reviewing the case to determine if Cosby should be prosecuted. Our sources say the D.A. is leaning toward filing charges.

If Goins settles the civil case it could severely undermine any criminal case, especially if Goins agrees to a confidentiality clause … something Cosby would almost certainly insist upon.
