Chloe Goins Drops Lawsuit Against Bill Cosby
The comedian is in court today on a separate criminal charge.
— -- Chloe Goins has dropped her civil lawsuit against embattled comedian Bill Cosby.
According to paperwork obtained by ABC News, Goins, a model, voluntarily dropped the suit, filed last October, without explanation on Tuesday.
Lawyers for Goins and Cosby have not yet commented on this development.
In the lawsuit, Goins alleged that when she was about 17, Cosby invited her to the Playboy mansion, gave her a drink that made her dizzy and took her into a bedroom where, she said, she passed out. She claimed that when she awoke, her clothes had been removed and Cosby was biting her toes.
Through his attorneys, Cosby previously denied the allegations and said he was not at the party at the Playboy mansion when the alleged incident occurred. Cosby has also repeatedly denied, through his legal team, sexual allegations from dozens of other women.
Because of the possibility that Goins’ allegations may have fallen within the California criminal statute of limitations, her claims were investigated by cops and prosecutors in Los Angeles, but no charges were filed. Prosecutors were unable to corroborate her story.
