Comedian Bill Cosby is retaliating against seven women who are suing him for defamation.
He accuses them of making false accusations of sexual msconduct – for financial gain.
Cosby alleges the women made “malicious, opportunistic, false and defamatory accusations” of sexual misconduct against him.
The women are claiming that Cosby defamed them – by allowing his representatives to brand them as liars – after they went public with allegations of rape and other sexual misconduct – going back decades.
The seven women are among about 50 women who have accused the comedian of rape or unwanted sexual contact.
Cosby is seeking unspecified monetary damages.
