Bill Cosby denied retrial in sexual assault case

In June, a jury sided with Judy Huth, finding the disgraced comedian liable for sexually assaulting her when she was 16 at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles in 1975. Huth was awarded $500,000 (£460,000) in damages for emotional distress but no punitive compensation. Last week, lawyers for Cosby argued that Huth's revision of some timeline details warranted a new trial but on Tuesday, Judge Craig Karlan rejected the request. "Cosby has failed to establish he received an unfair trial or that insufficient evidence existed to establish his liability for Plaintiff's harm.”
