A court case involving fallen TV icon Bill Cosby, who’s currently serving a sentence of three to 10 years for drugging an molesting a woman in 2004, went against the comedian.
The AP reports that Cosby, who is marking the end of his first year in prison, was hit with a legal bill for $2.75 million as a result of the latest ruling.
“The 82-year-old Cosby had 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,” the AP reports. “A judge sided Friday with Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, of Los Angeles, rejecting Cosby’s claim that the bill was ‘egregious.’”
Cosby is said to be mentoring other inmates in prison. Meanwhile, the Pennsylvania Superior Court is weighing his appeal of his 2018 conviction, the AP notes.
