A Santa Monica judge ruled Tuesday that Bill Cosby must sit down for a grueling second deposition with Gloria Allred, the pit bull lawyer representing alleged sexual assault victim Judith Huth.

Huth claims the fallen comedian sexually abused her in a 1974 incident at the Playboy Mansion, when she was just 15. Cosby was previously deposed in the case at an undisclosed location in Boston last year.

However, a motion to compel a second deposition was filed by Huth's legal team because Cosby refused to answer key questions at the October proceedings.

The latest deposition will be placed under seal and must take place by February 29.

Cosby, 78, is currently free on $1 million bail after he surrendered himself to Pennsylvania police Dec. 30 on sexual assault charges related to his former protégé Andrea Constand.

In 2005, Constand claimed that Cosby drugged and sexually attacked her while she worked as a manager for the women's basketball team at Temple University. At the time, police ultimately opted to drop the case due to "lack of evidence."

His criminal defense attorneys are again attempting to have the newest charges dismissed.

And, as Radar reported, Cosby sex assault accuser Chloe Goins filed a formal dismissal of her lawsuit against the beleaguered comedian on Tuesday, leading to speculation a settlement has been reached in the case stemming from an alleged 2008 incident at the Playboy mansion.
