This Wednesday, February 27, a Los Angeles judge ruled in favor of the model’s motion to depose the comedian.
The hearing took place at the Santa Monica Courthouse, where Judge Mark A. Young also denied Goins’ request to place a $5,000 sanction on Cosby, 81.
As RadarOnline.com readers know, Goins — who describes herself as a model turned rapper — accused the shamed actor of drugging and raping her at a Playboy party in 2008. He denied the claims, and though he is already serving time for the sexual assault of Andrea Constant, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Lawrence Cho allowed Goins’ civil lawsuit against him to proceed.
Goins, 28, served Cosby notices in October 17, 2018 and November 14, 2018 so her attorneys could conduct a deposition on him at the Pennsylvania prison he is currently in, on December 3, 2018. Cosby's attorney's objected to the notices, saying that the deposition would be "overly burdensome to conduct" and claiming she did not have enough evidence that deposing him was "necessary."
Goins then filed a request for an emergency order to compel Cosby's deposition, but that ex parte motion was denied. The beauty queen then filed a motion on January 31, 2019 to depose the aging comic, hoping to do so on April 22 and April 23 of this year. She even hopes to capture it all on camera while he sits behind bars.
In this week’s hearing, the judge said Goins' motion to compel to depose Cosby was filed within the proper timeframe and seeing as Cosby’s rejection of the deposition had no grounds, her motion should be granted.
