Bill Cosby is mulling a lawsuit against Pennsylvania, accusing the lawyers of his accusers of having “an axe to grind against black men.”
The comments were made Friday by Cosby’s publicist Andrew Wyatt. The comedian was released from prison last month after the Pennsylvania Supreme Court overturned his 2018 conviction for sexual assault, citing violations of his due process rights.
According to Wyatt, Cosby is hoping to make “a couple of hundred grand” in compensation.
“We are looking at what recourse, what legal recourse we can take against the state of Pennsylvania,” Wyatt told The Domenick Nati Show. “We are looking at all legal angles for those things right now.”
Wyatt went on to criticize attorneys Gloria Allred and her daughter Lisa Bloom, who represented several of the more than 60 women who came forward to accuse Cosby of alleged sexual harassment.
