Judge Rules Bill Cosby Can Sue Sex Assault Accuser Andrea Constand for Tweets

U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno has ruled that entertainer Bill Cosby cannot sue accuser Andrea Constand for breach of contract for violating their confidentiality agreement by cooperating with law enforcement officials in a case that led to Cosby’s arrest last December.

However, Cosby can sue her for some of her tweets and an interview she did with the Toronto Sun last summer, according to Robreno’s order. He can also sue her attorneys, Dolores Troiani and Bebe Kivitz, for an open letter they wrote to Bruce L. Castor, Jr., who was running for district attorney of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, last September and who did not prosecute Cosby during his previous stint as district attorney. The letter was published in the Philadelphia Inquirer.

In addition, Cosby can explore how his deposition in Constand’s 2005 civil suit – which he settled in late 2006 – got into the hands of the media last summer, the judge ruled. CLICK FOR MORE
