Bill Cosby is taking action against seven of the women who have accused him of sexual assault or misconduct.
On Monday, the 78-year-old actor filed a defamation suit again Tamara Green, Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis and Angela Leslie, according to his lawyer Monique Pressley.
In the suit, Cosby claims the women have made “malicious, opportunistic and false and defamatory accusations of sexual misconduct against him.” He also claims each defendant “knowingly published false statements and accusations.”
The suit was filed in response to the defamation suit brought against the actor by his accusers. Traitz, Serignese and Green first filed a suit against Cosby in December 2014, and were joined by Bowman, Tarshis, Moritz and Leslie this past November. Cosby’s countersuit against the seven women comes after a federal judge in Massachusetts refused to throw out their suit against him.
Cosby is also currently being sued for defamation by model Janice Dickinson.
The defendants named in Cosby’s countersuit are just a few of the more than 50 women who have come forward with allegations of sexual assault or misconduct that span the last 30 years.
While Cosby’s lawyers have denied the allegations and no criminal charges have ever been filed, it was previously revealed that Cosby testified under oath that he bought Quaaludes with the intention of giving them to women he intended to have sex with.
