    Cosby sued for alleged underage sexual abuse


    TV LEGEND Bill Cosby, already facing a barrage of sex abuse and rape allegations, is now being sued by a woman who claims he sexually assaulted her at the Playboy mansion when she was 15.

    Judy Huth, now 55, sued the comedian on Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, claiming sexual battery and infliction of emotional distress.

    She says that she and a friend met Cosby on a film set and he invited them to meet at a tennis club the following week.

    When they did, the suit alleges, Cosby served the girls alcoholic beverages and they all played billiards.

    "Under the terms of Cosby's game, plaintiff was required to consume a beer every time Cosby won a game," the suit claims.

    After the two girls had "multiple alcoholic beverages", Cosby allegedly told them he had a surprise for them "and led them to another house which turned out to be the Playboy Mansion".

    In a room there, he allegedly "proceeded to sexually molest her by attempting to put his hand down her pants, and then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent", the suit charges.

    Huth alleges that she suffered "psychological damage and mental anguish" throughout her life, but only recently discovered the problems were "caused by the sexual abuse perpetrated by Cosby".

    Around 20 women have now accused the 77-year-old Emmy and Golden Globe winner of sexual assault and even rape, most from decades ago during Cosby's heyday.
