Physical evidence against the Cos? (2005)

One of Bill Cosby's 14 accusers has "physical evidence" to support her drugging and/or sexual assault claims against the entertainer, an attorney involved in the civil suit against Cosby revealed in court yesterday.

Dolores Troiani, who represents Andrea Constand, the plaintiff in the civil suit, said Jane Doe No. 10 is the one with the physical evidence but did not elaborate.

The revelation came as depositions are set to begin in the case. Cosby and Constand will be deposed beginning today at unspecified locations.

The attorneys were in federal court here yesterday to work out various issues, including when and where the depositions would take place.

Troiani began the 30-minute hearing by saying they'd reached an agreement about the depositions. Patrick O'Connor, one of Cosby's attorneys, revealed they were beginning today. Neither side would comment outside the courtroom.

Constand, 32, was director of operations for the women's basketball team at Temple University when she first met Cosby about three years ago. She has accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting her at his Cheltenham, Montgomery County, mansion in January 2004. She went to police in January 2005. After conducting an investigation, Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce Castor said there was not enough evidence to sustain the case beyond a reasonable doubt. CLICK FOR MORE
