This whole entire story is a case of “follow the money”. I have no doubt that Cosby did at least a few of these rapes, but good luck proving it in court.
It’s ironic that the Hollywood execs and their legal offices intimidated and paid off victims because they were making mega-bucks off Cosby. Now that he’s 70+ years old, making them no money, and pissing off the entertainment establishment, they’re more than happy to chuck him under the bus and let the accusers swarm in for their cut.
Cosby’s fixer has all kinds of records of women getting paid off. Guess what? That means that they’ve settled out of court, whether they know it or not, and are entitled to NOTHING in the court of law. This is why any lawyer worth a tin whistle will tell you not to accept ANYTHING from the defendant or their lawyer. Nothing, not even a stick of gum. I’ve heard of accusers accepting an invitation to dinner to discuss the upcoming case. You guessed it—they just settled out of court for a steak dinner.
