Bill Cosby Takes Another L in Sexual Assault Case

More bad news.

Published August 16, 2017

Bill Cosby isn't having the best of luck since his sexual assault trial concluded in a deadlocked jury.

After his lead defense attorney Brian McMonagle asked to be removed from the case earlier this month, another attorney connected to the case has followed suit.

According to, Angela Agrusa, the second lawyer who defended the fallen comedian in his infamous sexual assault trial, has requested that she be released from the case prior to the official kick-off of his retrial in November.

Agrusa, a Los Angeles based lawyer, filed the documents to be pardoned from the case on Tuesday, following closely behind McMonagle.

The 80-year-old comic is set to be retried on drug and molesting charges filed by Andrea Constand more than 10 years ago. Cosby stands by his claim that their interaction was consensual.
