You can read the well-drafted, five-page complaint filed by Judy Huth against Bill Cosby for yourself. Ms Huth’s complaint alleges three causes of actions or legal claims: (1) sexual battery, (2) intentional infliction of emotional distress, and (3) negligent infliction of emotional distress. Here are some technical and procedural questions for my law students: Are these tort claims (dating from the 1970s) now “stale“? If so, could the District Attorney still bring criminal charges against Cosby after so many years? Also, could Cosby’s lawyers remove this complaint to federal court?
