Judge Denies Bill Cosby’s Request To Suppress 2005 Deposition Admitting To Obtaining Quaaludes To Give Women

Bill Cosby suffered another courtroom setback in his sexual assault trial on Monday, with the judge in the case dismissing his lawyers’ request to suppress the comedian’s 2005 deposition in which he admits to obtaining Quaaludes in order to give them to women.

This follows the judge’s earlier decision to deny a motion to dismiss the case after Cosby’s lawyers argued that he is “legally blind,” claiming he suffers from “end stage glaucoma,” and can “only sense movement or hand motions in the temporal region of [the] left eye,” according to court documents.

Cosby’s alleged blindness, argued his attorneys, would render him unable to recognize his accusers, but the judge didn’t buy that argument, ruling that Cosby’s due process rights were not violated, and denied  his request for a dismissal.

Cosby is set to stand trial on criminal charges of sexually assaulting Constand, with the trial date set for June 5, 2017.
