US judge allows Cosby assault case

Breaking News image

US prosecutors can proceed with a sexual assault charge against comedian Bill Cosby, a judge has ruled.

The ruling sweeps aside claims made by Mr Cosby’s lawyers that a previous case had granted the comedian immunity from prosecution a decade ago.

Judge Steven O’Neill issued the ruling at a court in Norristown, just outside Philadelphia, after a two-day hearing.

Dozens of women have said the actor assaulted them over a span of decades.
