Brace Yourself! Here's Why Bill Cosby's Secrets Are About to Go Public

This could get ugly.

Published August 15, 2016

Things aren't looking that great for Bill Cosby as a federal appeals court rejected his plea to reseal his deposition testimony, saying that the documents involving extramarital affairs, prescription sedatives and payments to women are now "a matter of public knowledge."

According to the Daily Mail, the 3rd US Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia ultimately ruled that the fallen TV dad's appeal was questionable.

"The contents of the documents are a matter of public knowledge, and we cannot pretend that we could change that fact by ordering them resealed," the court wrote.

This throws a wrench in Cosby's plan as his attoneys were hoping for a ruling in their favor, which could have helped them in preventing those documents from being used in the criminal case against him in Pennsylvania and in the countless lawsuits that have been filed against him across the country by women who claim they were sexually assaulted by him.
