Bill Cosby’s legal team has been fighting a battle over sealed testimony the entertainer gave in 2005. The contested testimony was given in a case that Cosby settled out of court, making a payment to a woman from Temple University, his alma mater, who accused him of drugging and raping her. The Associated Press has been fighting to have the documents unsealed. On Monday they were released.
Cosby’s lawyers had claimed that testimony he gave would be “embarrassing” to him, a claim that seemed the least of his worries. Revelations contained in the unsealed documents include Cosby’s admission that he obtained Quaaludes with “the intent to give them to young women he wanted to have sex with.” Cosby also admitted to giving tablets of Benadryl to the Temple University woman at the center of the case.
