Comedian Bill Cosby has failed to block a civil case accusing him of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles in 1974.

The California Supreme Court rejected his petition to review the case brought by Judy Huth – meaning her lawyers can now question Cosby under oath.

The 78-year-old is facing a string of sexual assault accusations dating back decades.
He has always maintained his innocence and has never been criminally charged.

Huth alleges that Cosby plied her with alcohol before sexually assaulting her.
Her lawyer, Gloria Allred, described it as a “major victory” and says she intends to take a sworn deposition from the comedian within the next month. (BBC)
