PHILADELPHIA — Bill Cosby settled a lawsuit Wednesday with a woman who said the entertainer drugged and sexually assaulted her at his home outside Philadelphia.
Terms of the settlement will remain confidential, according to a one-paragraph statement released jointly by both sides. Cosby's publicist, David Brokaw, said there would be no further comment. The woman claimed that Cosby, 69, assaulted her at his mansion in Cheltenham, Pa., in early 2004 after giving her pills. Attorneys for Cosby say the comedian gave the woman Benadryl after she complained of stress and sleeping problems.
