Bill Cosby is actively trying to put a lid on his alleged sexual assault scandal as it was just revealed that his attorneys went to federal court in Philadelphia to request that his prior testimony on affairs, drugs and more be resealed.
According to USA Today, the former TV dad and his team are trying to attempt to deny Andrea Constand, the initial accuser in his still pending criminal case, along with the other women who accused him of sexual assault, the asset of using that information against him.
Seeing as the deposition transcripts were unsealed in 2015, the contents of the entire testimony have now become public knowledge, which can work against the 78-year-old and will be hard to conceal.
A judge refused a request to postpone or cancel a deposition for the comedian's wife, Camille, while placing restrictions on what questions could be asked.
"While not agreeing to terminate the deposition, the court granted Mrs. Cosby's request to limit the types of questions she could be asked going forward, prohibiting plaintiffs from asking improper questions, questions seeking her opinion, and questions involving marital communications," the couple's publicist, Andrew Wyatt, said.
