Bill Cosby Owes $2.75 Million Legal Bill
Not so good news for Bill Cosby. Reportedly, the 82-year-old jailed comedian has been hit with a $2.75 million legal bill.
Cosby challenged a California arbitration award that upheld nearly $7 million of a $9 million bill submitted by just one firm in the run-up to his first sexual assault trial in Pennsylvania in 2017.
A judge sided with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, of Los Angeles, rejecting Cosby’s claim that the bill was “egregious.”
Cosby is nearing the end of his first jail sentence. He is serving three to 10 years for drugging and molesting a woman in 2004. The Pennsylvania Superior Court is weighing his appeal of the 2018 conviction.
