As More Cosby Accusers Come Forward, a High-Profile Attorney Suggests That the Comedian Set Up a Fund for Victims

As women who allege Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them continue to come forward, high-profile Los Angeles attorney Gloria Allred has come up with a novel way she thinks the comedian can make amends.

At a press conference Wednesday, Allred suggested that Cosby establish a $100 million fund as a settlement with the victims, Variety reports. She acknowledged that the statute of limitations had run out on many of the women’s claims, and a fund, overseen by retired judges, would get around that issue.

Allred alternatively proposed that Cosby could waive the statute of limitations and stand trial.

“The ball is in his court,” Allred said.

Three more women came forward publicly at the press conference; at least one was an anonymous part of an earlier lawsuit against Cosby.

Representatives for Cosby have charged the media is running the allegations without any corroboration.
