With allegations of sexual misconduct spanning five decades from more than 50 women, it was only this past week that a Pennsylvania judge ruled that there is enough evidence to try Bill Cosby on criminal charges. Elizabeth Vargas brings the latest news in “Cosby on Trial” – a legal battleground that now includes both civil and criminal actions across several jurisdictions – including Cosby’s new defamation counterclaims against some of his accusers.

Friday night “20/20” updates the A&E documentary “Cosby: The Women Speak,” produced by ABC’s Lincoln Square Productions. It is a dramatic and provocative show offering intimate interviews with several of Bill Cosby’s accusers, detailing their stories and claims of victimization by the legendary comedian and actor.
