Bill Cosby accuser Lili Bernard files lawsuit against comedian, say he drugged and raped her in New Jersey

Philadelphia-One of Bill Cosby’s whistleblowers has filed a proceeding against a comedian in New Jersey.

Lili Bernard says Cosby raped her in Atlantic City in August 1990 by giving her medicine.

He is said to have forced her to travel there from New York as a young actress.

The proceedings alleged that Cosby had begun a mentoring relationship with Bernard, which included a proposal to introduce her at the Cosby Show.

“I’ve been waiting for a long time to be able to pursue my proceedings in court. I’m looking forward to hearing and taking responsibility for what Cosby has done to me. It was long ago. It happened, but I still live in fear and pain. Every day of my life is embarrassing, “Bernard said in a press release Thursday.

Cosby was released from prison in July after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his sexual assault case.
The court ruled that the prosecutor who filed the case was bound by his predecessor’s agreement not to prosecute Cosby.

Cosby, 84, was sentenced to three to ten years in 2004 after being convicted of violating the drug administration to Temple University sports manager Andrea Constant at his home in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. I have served for over 2 years.

Four judges formed a majority of decisions in favor of Cosby, and the other three opposed in whole or in part.

So far, I haven’t heard of the latest allegations from Cosby’s legal team.
