Sex Assault Lawsuits Against Bill Cosby Could Leave Him Bankrupt
A sex abuse lawyer named John Manly appeared on HuffPoLive saying that if Bill Cosby was found liable for all the lawsuits filed against him it might end up completely bankrupt.
Manly estimated Cosby’s assets at approximately $350 million, and he said a considerable amount of that may be up for grabs considering the gravity of Cosby’s alleged crimes. While the civil case against the comedian only focuses on defamation, the lingering allegations of sexual abuse will likely weigh heavy on the jury’s mind.
“Juries understand the profound psychological impact that this has on victims,” Manly said. “And a jury, if they believe that Mr. Cosby did this, is gonna have no time for it. So there’s multiple levels of damages they could award.”
Manly estimated that victims could be awarded actual damages as high as $5 million to $10 million for psychological harm, past and future harm and past and future loss of income.
50-plus women all filing civil suits would DEFINITELY sink Bill Cosby’s battleship.
