Bill Cosby's lawyers seek to dismiss model Janice Dickinson's defamation case

A judge in Los Angeles is due to consider whether to dismiss model Janice Dickinson's defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby.

The comedian's lawyers want Dickinson's case to be dismissed because they say she has given differing accounts of her interactions with Cosby over the years.

Dickinson sued Cosby in May 2015 over his denial of her claims that he drugged and raped her in Lake Tahoe in 1982. She says she tried to include the story in a 2002 memoir, but her publisher refused.

Cosby's former lawyer has denied her claims and branded the model and reality television star a liar.

Dickinson's suit states that the denial caused her to feel re-victimised about the incident.

Dozens of women have accused Cosby of sexual abuse, but in most instances the statutes of limitations have passed.
