Incarcerated Bill Cosby Is Being Sued By His Defense Attorneys

The disgraced icon is doing time for felony sexual assault.

Published September 29, 2018

Convicted serial rapist Bill Cosby was convicted earlier this week and we reported that a source shared that the shamed actor has already received the nickname “OG”, from his new cellmates at the SCI Phoenix prison. 

But new information is coming to the surface that doesn’t look too good for the Philadelphia native. It’s being said that Philadelphia law firm is looking to collect their coins from Mr. Cosby. 

According to court records, "Schnader Harrison Segal and Lewis" are seeking approximately $283,000 in unpaid legal fees.

The firm says that they worked for Cosby on legal issues, including the charges of Cosby drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple student, Andrea Constand.

Samuel Silver says he was hired to represent the comedian in January 2016 but withdrew from the case in January 2018 prior to Cosby’s conviction.

The firm says that Cosby owes money for legal services invoiced between August 2017 and July of this year.

This is just another addition to Mr. Cosby’s many woes. We will keep you posted as everything unfolds.
