Lawyers for Bill Cosby argued in a motion (PDF) on Tuesday that his accuser in a 2005 sex-abuse suit was trying to “smear” him and should have ensured that court reporters knew his deposition transcript was still confidential.
The New York Times obtained the deposition transcript from a court reporting service and summarized the contents in a story that asserted the deposition was never sealed. But lawyers for Cosby say the court reporting service, Kaplan Leaman & Wolfe, should not have released the document under terms of the suit’s settlement, report the Legal Intelligencer, the New York Times, the Guardian and Time magazine.
The filing by lawyers at Cozen O’Connor says Cosby’s accuser in the suit, a Temple University employee, should be sanctioned partly for release of the deposition transcript to the media through her “own hired court reporter … without a word to the defendant.” The motion does not include specifics on sanctions sought and says relief will be sought separately.

Organized by Comedy, Drama, Mystery, Sci Fi/Superheroes, Western, Detective Stories, Music, and Miscellaneous, each of the categories includes famous entertainers, including big band leaders like Artie Shaw and Benny Goodman as well as famous comedians like Abbot and Costello.
