Bill Cosby is charged in a 12-year-old sexual assault case. There was a hearing scheduled for today but things are now on hold pending a hearing on the motion to dismiss from Cosby’s lawyers. That is scheduled for Feb. 2.
Cosby’s lawyers seek a dismissal of the Pennsylvania case and claim the prosecutor is using the matter for political gain.
Despite the legal delays Cosby continues to face recriminations in the court of public opinion. He recently was stripped of another honorary degree, this time from George Washington University.
He already was stripped of the honorary degree bestowed upon him by Boston University and Atlanta’s Spelman College moved to distance itself from the comedian, actor and celebrity pitchman. The school announced last year it would end a professorship tied to Cosby and return the money.
