Despite the fact that there have been more than 50 women who have collectively come together to claim that Bill Cosby had allegedly s*xually assaulted them more than a decade ago, the once-beloved comedian and sitcom actor is now planning to make his comeback to comedy once the litigation surrounding these claims is finalized.
The news arrived this past Thursday, from Angela Argusa, Cosby’s attorney. She was the one who’d filed a motion in Massachusetts federal court, attempting to keep several accusers from getting hold of Cosby’s business records.
In the filed paperwork, which was obtained by Variety, Agrusa argued that sharing the business documents would hurt Cosby’s future business dealings.
“When Mr. Cosby is cleared from all liability and charges, and the impact of Plaintiffs’ defamatory conduct has subsided, he expects to resume his career, and there is no reason to believe otherwise,” Agrusa wrote. “But disclosure of this type of financial and business information is irreversible. Even after his name is cleared, if released to the public, this information would improperly restrain his employment and tie his hands for renegotiation.”
Even without those recently filed documents being exposed to the public, the comedian and television star has still been significantly casted out by the allegations that were brought to light just last year.
So, what are your thoughts? Do you think that Cosby will be able to make a successful comeback? Or should he just sit this one out once and for all?
