Bill Cosby is set to face a deposition in the case of a woman accusing him of sexual assault, Reuters reports.
The woman, Judy Huth, claims the comedian abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, when she was 15-years-old.
The deposition order was made official in Los Angeles Superior Court Tuesday and made public Wednesday.
The filing indicates that on October 9, Cosby will “submit to questions under oath,” from lawyers representing Huth, according to Reuters.
Huth will answer questions from Cosby’s attorneys October 15.
The alleged assault is one of dozens of accusations against Cosby, dating as far back as the 1960s.
“Huth’s lawsuit states that she and a 16-year-old friend first met Cosby at a Los Angeles-area film shoot and the comedian gave the girls drinks a week later at a tennis club,” The Associated Press reported in December.
The lawsuit states that Cosby took them to the Playboy Mansion after several drinks, and told the teenagers to lie and say they were 19 years old if asked. Her lawsuit states Cosby forced her to perform a sex act on him with his hand.”
New York Magazine last month published a bombshell cover story featuring the accounts of 35 of Cosby’s accusers. More than 40 women have publicly accused Cosby of some form of sexual abuse.
Many of the cases are beyond the statute of limitations for criminal or civil action, but at least one other outstanding case could potentially cause more trouble for the embattled comedian.
To date, Cosby has publicly denied any wrongdoing, and he has not been charged with a crime.
