11.18.15 – Attorney Gloria Allred held a news conference today in Atlanta to announce the filing of a lawsuit after she (and other Bill Cosby protesters) were denied entry by the police to Bill Cosby’s show last May.

11.18.15 – Gloria is represented by Cary Wiggins who is a very prominent First Amendment lawyer in Georgia and agreed to take her case. Last May 2015 Gloria was scheduled to speak at a protest and attend a Bill Cosby show at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Cobb County Atlanta. She was interested in attending Bill Cosby’s performance in part to gain insight that would help her in the representation of many alleged victims of Bill Cosby whom she represented at that time. She did not intend to disrupt Mr. Cosby’s show. When she approached the theater she was stopped and asked to show her ticket and ID. The official then told her to enter a side entrance where two police officers informed her that she could not enter the theater because her name was on a “security” list. She was instructed to exit the property and if she refused it would be considered “criminal trespass” and she would be subject to arrest. Gloria stated this morning “As a result of these events I have filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division against Cobb County, Georgia, Cobb-Murrieta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority alleging that my First Amendment rights and due process rights and the rights of a number of other Bill Cosby protesters were violated when we were denied the right to view and listen to Mr. Cosby’s performance without justification of explanation wholly on account of our viewpoints about Mr. Cosby. I am seeking a court order which permanently enjoins the defendants from carrying out the Center’s viewpoint based censorship admissions policy.” Mr. Wiggins believes that this is a very important case “because it involves government censorship. When the government decides who can attend a public performance in a public venue – based on their point of view – there is a problem. When the government allows the public performer to decide who can watch his or her show in that public venue, the problem is exacerbated; and when the government threatens to arrest anyone who that public performer thinks should be excluded because of their point of view, the problem is intolerable form a constitutional perspective.”

10.23.15 – Gloria Allred held a press conference today in New York with two more women who have accused Bill Cosby of misconduct against them. We are sure that Mr. Cosby would hope that these women would stop coming forward and that this scandal would end so that he could try to repair his public image. We can assure Mr. Cosby, however, that there are still more victims courageous to come forward in the future and that we will not stop until the last victims that wishes to speak her truth has done so.

10.23.15 – Today in New York two more women spoke out about what Mr. Cosby did to them. Dottye is a retired physical therapist, who produces, writes and directs her own drama theater company. At the time of the incident she was a union actress. Donna Barrett is a college graduate, a wife, mother, and grandmother, who is a master’s track athlete, track coach and a certified Master’s track official. More than 40 women have now made allegations about rape, drugging or sexual assault by Mr. Cosby, someone they trusted. The sheer magnitude of the number of victims, the similarity and common themes of what happened to them, coupled with their sincerity, are what we want the public to know. Each and every story must be told because there can never be accountability without truth and there can never be enough truth.

09.30.15 – Today Ms. Allred held a press conference with three women who have never previously made public accusations against actor Bill to describe what they allege happened to them when they had the misfortune to come into contact with or have a relationship with Mr. Cosby. One accuser is a former Mrs. America, another was a cocktail server at a jazz club frequented by Mr. Cosby. The third accuser was introduced to Mr. Cosby after a friend suggested to her that Mr. Cosby could help her be featured in Playboy Magazine since Mr. Cosby appeared to be friends with Hugh Hefner. At the press conference Ms. Allred commented on why more accusers continue to come forward to make accusations against Mr. Cosby. In addition, she replied to the comments made by one of Mr. Cosby’s many lawyers who reportedly suggested that Mr. Cosby should not have been stripped of his honorary degree last week by Fordham University.

08.22.15 – Civil Rights Attorney Gloria Allred Attends Wedding in Michigan of Same Sex Couple Who Won the Right to Marry in the U.S. Supreme Court

08.22.15 – Attorney Gloria Allred, who won the right to marry in 2010 for her clients, a same sex couple who wanted to marry in California attended the wedding of April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse, the Michigan couple who won the right to marry in the U. S. Supreme Court. April and Jayne’s wedding was held at Pi Banquet Hall located at 28847 Franklin Road, Southfield, Michigan at 5:30 PM EST on August 22, 2015. Ms. Allred was accompanied by her California clients who became the first to be permitted to marry in Los Angeles County after Ms. Allred fought for and won in the California Supreme Court the right for them to marry. April and Jayne were the guests of honor in Ms. Allred’s car in the gay and lesbian pride parade in West Hollywood in June 2015 prior to the United State Supreme Court deciding their case.

08.20.15 – Today in New York Ms. Allred held a press conference with two new accusers of Bill Cosby. One was an aspiring actress the other a flight attendant. Joining them in support was a third woman who was a Playboy model who has previously spoken out about what she alleges Mr. Cosby did to her. Ms. Allred also discussed what Mr. Cosby can expect when he gives his testimony under oath on October 9th, 2015.

08.20.15 – Today Gloria Allred held a press conference with two new accusers of Bill Cosby and with one additional accuser who has previously spoken about what she alleges Mr. Cosby did to her, but who wanted to be here today to support the new accusers. Charlotte Fox was a 23-year-old aspiring actress when she came into contact with Bill Cosby. Elizabeth was only 20 years old when she had the bad luck to be serving as a flight attendant on the American Airlines flight on which Mr. Cosby was flying from the east to the west coast. Jane Doe, who is here with us and has spoken out previously, was a model for Playboy magazine when Mr. Cosby contacted her. Although all of them kept the secret from the public of what they alleged happened to them for many years, they have now decided to come forward in an effort to help other women and hold Mr. Cosby accountable for what they allege was his misconduct with them. Although it is too late for them to take any legal action because of the statute of limitations, it is not too late for them to become empowered women who can speak out in the court of public opinion, and that is what they are doing today.

08.12.15 – Today three new women accusing Bill Cosby of victimizing them spoke out at a press conference with their attorney Gloria Allred. Two were actors in feature films or television and one was a flight attendant and fashion model. These women have now found the courage to come forward to tell what they allege is their truth about what Mr. Cosby did to them.

08.12.15 – Recently New York Magazine had a photograph on their cover of more than 30 women who had come forward publicly to accuse Bill Cosby of having victimized them. That cover also featured an empty chair, which in the opinion of many, represented all of the accusers who have not yet come forward. Today, that empty chair is filled by three new women who allege that they were victimized by Mr. Cosby. These women have now found the courage to come forward to tell what they allege is their truth about what Mr. Cosby did to them. Linda Ridgeway Whitedeer was an actor who appeared in a feature film “The Mechanic” which was released in 1972. She also appeared in many commercials for well-known brands. Colleen Hughes was a flight attendant for American Airlines and fashion model. Eden Tirl was an actor who appeared on the Cosby Show.

08.06.15 – Today we are happy to announce the settlement of a defamation lawsuit which we filed against Syracuse University and Jim Boeheim.

08.06.15 – We are very happy to announce that we have settled the defamation lawsuit which we filed on behalf of our clients, Bobby Davis and Mike Lang, against Syracuse University and James Boeheim. It has been a privilege to represent them in their courageous efforts to ensure that victims of childhood sexual abuse may speak out about their abuse without fear of being unfairly attacked.

08.05.15 – Today, we received a copy of the Court’s order in our case of Judy Huth v. William Henry Cosby, Jr. to proceed with depositions.

08.05.15 – The court granted our application requiring Mr. Cosby to submit to his deposition before the deposition of our client, Judy Huth. Mr. Cosby’s deposition will take place on October 9, 2015 and our client’s deposition will take place on October 15, 2015. We are pleased that we will now be able to move ahead without further delay on Ms. Huth’s case and we look forward to taking Mr. Cosby’s testimony under oath.

08.05.15 – The Vice Channels and Broadly feature Gloria Allred in a “Style & Error” episode exploring The Power Suit.

07.28.15 – Gloria Allred statement regarding the deposition of Bill Cosby

07.28.15 – Today Ms. Allred went to court in Santa Monica on our case of Judy Huth v. William H. Cosby to request that the order and dates of the depositions be determined. Mr. Cosby has been attempting to delay the taking of his deposition for some time.

07.22.15 – Today we are happy to announce that we have won a major victory in the case of Judy Huth v. William H. Cosby in which she alleges that Mr. Cosby committed acts of sexual misconduct on her at the Playboy Mansion when she was only 15 years old.

07.22.15 – Mr. Cosby, through his attorneys, has been trying to block Ms. Huth from moving forward for some time. His latest effort involved his lawyers filing a petition asking the California Supreme Court to review the laws under which prior rulings in this case were based. Today we are happy to announce that the California Supreme Court has denied Mr Cosby’s petition seeking review of Ms. Huth’s case against him.

07.15.15 – Gloria Allred reacts to President Obama being asked today if he would consider revoking the U.S. Medal of Freedom given to Bill Cosby. Obama responded that “there’s no precedent for revoking a medal. We don’t have that mechanism,” he said. But the President did outline his definition of rape.

07.15.15 – I am very happy that President Obama addressed the question of Bill Cosby and whether or not the President or the White House would revoke the Medal of Freedom honor awarded to Mr. Cosby in 2002. The President has not yet citied any legal reason why it could not be done. If all it takes is a “mechanism” to do that, then I would hope that the executive branch would begin work on such a mechanism. Regarding the President’s comments on drugging and raping women, I thought that his comments were strong, accurate and compassionate.

07.13.15 – Today Gloria Allred held a press conference with two women, who were “Jane Doe” witnesses in the 2005 lawsuit brought against Mr. Cosby, to react to excerpts of Cosby’s deposition in which Cosby testifies about allegations by the two women that he drugged and sexually assaulted them.

07.13.15 – We are making a statement today because last week on July 6, 2015, U.S. District Court Judge Eduardo C. Robreno ordered the release of certain testimony of Bill Cosby from Cosby’s deposition in the Constand lawsuit. Upon reviewing the excerpts that were released, we discovered that Mr. Cosby had testified about two of my clients, Beth Ferrier (Jane Doe #5) and Rebecca Lynn Neal (Jane Doe #11). We are concerned that his partial testimony if believed can cause reputational damage to both of my clients. In his deposition, when questioned about both Beth and Rebecca, Mr. Cosby seemed to be constantly trying to avoid either committing perjury or telling the whole truth. For that reason today we have assisted them in filing a memorandum in federal court in support of Andrea Constand’s motion last week seeking to unseal and release the entire deposition transcript of Mr. Cosby’s deposition in Andrea’s lawsuit. In the memorandum our clients argue that they need the entire deposition to be released so that they can defend themselves with the whole truth – not just select passages of the transcript, which have been released. We look forward to the decision of federal judge Eduardo C. Robreno.

07.06.15 – Today a U.S. District judge seized on Bill Cosby’s public moralizing on issues like family life, education and crime as he unsealed portions of a 2005 deposition taken in a sexual assault lawsuit filed against Cosby. In his testimony Mr. Cosby states that he obtained Quaaludes with the intention of giving them to young women with whom he wanted to have sex.

07.06.15 – Statement of Gloria Allred – “This confirms the allegations of numerous victims who have said that he has used drugs in order to sexually assault them. This admission is one that Mr. Cosby has attempted to hide from the public for many years and we are very gratified that it is now being made public. We are very hopeful that we will be able to use this admission in the case of Judy Huth v. Bill Cosby, which Mr. Cosby is attempting to block by filing a writ with the California Supreme Court. Coincidently, today we filed a brief on behalf of Ms. Huth in the California Supreme Court in opposition to Mr. Cosby’s effort to have Ms. Huth’s case dismissed.”

07.01.15 – Gloria Allred statement on Bill Cosby

07.01.15 – ” ‘Statute of Limitations’ appears to be Mr. Cosby’s three favorite words. But I have faith that there will come a day when one or more of his numerous alleged victims will finally be able to break through the barriers and force Mr. Cosby to be accountable. I look forward to that day and to be able to look Mr. Cosby in the eye and tell him that justice has no time limit.” Gloria Allred

06.30.15 – Statement of Gloria Allred on the Texas Indictment of NFL Player CJ Spillman on a Charge of Sexual Assault

06.30.15 – Once again, the NFL has clearly dropped the ball. Despite this sexual assault allegation in Texas for which Mr. Spillman is now indicted and another allegation of sexual assault made to the police in California by another alleged victim, prior to the Texas sexual assault allegation made to the police, the NFL continued to allow Mr. Spillman to play with the Dallas Cowboys. Ironically, my client, the alleged victim in the Texas case reported the alleged sexual assault to the police on September 20, 2014, one day after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell held a major news conference in which he stated “I got it wrong in the handling of the Ray Rice matter. I am sorry for that. I got it wrong on a number of levels – from the process that I led to the decision that I reached.” He stated “I believe in accountability. I understand the challenge before me and I will be held accountable for meeting it.” The NFL failed to do what Commissioner Goodell promised. It took the courage of my client, a very brave young woman to take action in the justice system. Clearly there is no justice in the NFL system for alleged victims of NFL players.

06.26.15 – Today, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges that marriage equality is now the law of our land and that same sex couples are entitled to the equal protection of the law. Gloria Allred and her clients Robin Tyler and Diane Olson hold a news conference in Los Angeles to react to the decision.

06.26.15 – “This is a landmark historic U.S. Supreme Court decision which we celebrate today and which is long overdue. I am so proud of our Supreme Court and of our country today. I have been fighting the battle for equal rights for gay and lesbian individuals and couples for almost 40 years. This ruling is as a result of decades of small steps by courageous individuals, their families, their co-workers and civil rights pioneers. I am so happy that they will no longer have to suffer the indignity of being second class citizens under the law. They will no longer have to endure the humiliation and the disrespect that accompanies second class personhood. I thank God that I have lived to see this day and can share in the joy that it brings to millions of Americans.” – Gloria Allred

06.16.15 – Today Tracey Carver, the women in the “Texas pool party” video that went viral, held a press conference with her attorney, Gloria Allred. Ms. Carver has been in hiding ever since the incident on June 5, 2015 because of death threats which she has received as a result of untrue statements made about her accusing her of making a racist remark at the time of the incident.

06.16.15 – Today, Tracey Carver has decided to speak out for the first time and share what she alleges happened at the Texas, “Pool Party Incident” in McKinney. The video shows Tracey in an altercation after she and her children left the pool at their homeowners association complex. She owns a home in the complex where she lives with her husband, her children and Aaron Clark, an African American who has been her husband’s best friend since college. “Accusation that I am a racist could not be further from the person I truly am. I am a woman of God, a humanitarian in every sense of the word and have countless supporters of all ethnic backgrounds that have and will stand up for my character.” Tracey told the media. She alleges that at about 5:00 pm that evening, when dozens of non-residents began jumping the pool fence, she decided to gather her children and her friend and leave the pool. As she was leaving an 18 year old women grabbed her friend by the hair, screaming and pulling her into the street. What the video shows is Tracey trying to defuse the fight. “I didn’t beat anyone nor use any racial slurs.” Ms. Allred has agreed to support Tracey and her family because “I am very concerned that the movement for racial equality suffers a serious setback when innocent individuals are wrongly accused of making racists statements based on false rumors and find themselves and their children being threatened that they will be raped and murdered. Polarization of the races, rather than progress toward equality is the result of false rumors. The lies must be stopped and those who have lied about Tracey owe her an apology and a long overdue truth about what really happened that day in McKinney.”

06.14.15 – Gloria Allred participates in the 2015 Annual LA Pride Parade, celebrating the transgender, lesbian, gay and bisexual communities, where hundreds of thousands of people lined Santa Monica Boulevard Sunday in West Hollywood, CA.

06.14.15 – A Michigan same sex couple whose case for marriage will be decided this month by the U.S. Supreme Court this month rode as guests of honor in Gloria Allred’s car in the parade. April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse are challenging the right of a state to ban same sex marriage. In the couple’s case, DeBoer v. Snyder and a Kentucky case the U.S. Supreme Court will decide if the U.S. Constitution requires a state to issue marriage licenses to two people of the same sex. (Refer to Gloria’s press conference of March 6, 2015 for more detailed information on this case.)

06.12.15 – Bill Cosby Petitions the California Supreme Court – Statement of Gloria Allred

06.12.15 – We represent Judy Huth who alleges that Mr. Cosby sexually assaulted her when she was 15 years old. This week Bill Cosby filed a Petition for Review with the California Supreme Court in the case of Judy Huth v. William H. Cosby, Jr. (Case #B263799). We will oppose Bill Cosby’s Petition, and we have also noticed Mr. Cosby’s deposition. We look forward to continuing to fight for Ms. Huth’s right to have her allegations against Mr. Cosby decided at trial in the Los Angeles County Superior Court. There, Ms. Huth and Mr. Cosby will both be able to testify under oath and the jury, after hearing and considering all admissible evidence, will be able to decide if Mr. Cosby should be found liable for the allegations that Ms. Huth has made against him in her lawsuit.

06.09.15 – Today Gloria Allred held a press conference in Charleston South Carolina to announce the filing of a lawsuit against Hilton Worldwide, Inc. on behalf of her client Kayla Snipe who alleges that she was sexually assaulted by a man that was provided a key to her room by the hotel.

06.09.15 – Today we are here in Charleston, South Carolina, to announce that we have filed a lawsuit on behalf of Kayla Snipe (age 28) against Hilton Worldwide, Inc., d/b/a Embassy Suites North Charleston- Airport Hotel. We allege that Embassy Suites’ negligence resulted in an alleged sexual assault that Kayla was forced to suffer in her hotel room. We allege negligence (premises liability), negligent supervision, negligence, gross negligence and dram shop liability. In this case, the accused assailant was extremely inebriated and was not authorized to be given a key to Kayla’s room, since he was not registered to that room and Kayla had not given permission to the hotel to provide her key card to anyone. The accused assailant is being prosecuted and faces a charge of criminal sexual misconduct. To provide a key card under these circumstances, especially to someone who is drunk, is a clear breach of the duty of care that a hotel owes its guest to protect her from an intruder. This is an important case for women because so many women travel for business or pleasure and stay alone in hotels. There they have every right to expect safety and privacy, and in fact a hotel has a duty to protect its guests from foreseeable risks of harm.

06.08.15 – Today Gloria Allred announced victory when a Santa Clara Superior Court Judge ordered dismissal of former NFL player Ray McDonald’s defamation lawsuit against a woman who alleged to the police that he sexually assaulted her.

06.08.15 – Recently (May 6, 2015) we held a news conference to announce that we would seek to have a defamation lawsuit dismissed that had been filed by a former NFL player Ray McDonald against our client, a young woman who had alleged to law enforcement that she had been sexually assaulted by Ray McDonald. Today, we are happy to announce that Santa Clara Superior Court Judge William Elfving agreed with our legal position and granted our special motion to strike all five causes of action in Mr. McDonald’s lawsuit meaning that McDonald’s lawsuit against our client is dismissed. We will now continue with the cross complaint which we filed on behalf of our client against Mr. McDonald alleging assault and battery, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment.

06.05.15 – Today in Orlando Florida Gloria Allred and her client Samantha Boomer held a press conference to explain why they are suing Samantha’s husband, iHeartMedia radio talk show host of “Monsters in the Morning” for defamation, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

06.05.15 – Samantha Boomer and her attorneys Gloria Allred and Howard Marks held a press conference in Orlando, Florida today to explain why she has filed a defamation and invasion of privacy lawsuit against her husband, radio talk show host, Russ Rollins and iHeartMedia. Russ hosts “Monsters in the Morning” and staged an on air false story that his wife Samantha had instructed a process server to serve him with divorce papers while he was on the air. iHeartMedia and its employees including Mr. Rollins hosted the false story on its website, posted the video on social media and it went viral. Samantha discussed the impact how these false and defamatory remarks have hurt her and the impact on her life. Gloria reported that she believes that Mr. Rollins conduct was outrageous and beyond the bounds of all decency.” “A license to broadcast on the public airwaves is a privilege and not a license to defame or invade the privacy of others. Now we will fight back and we have confidence that we will prevail.”

06.04.15 – Gloria Allred issues press statement regarding Justin Bieber’s recent charges of assault and careless driving.

06.04.15 – Justin Bieber was permitted to plead guilty today to assault and careless driving which are misdemeanors. The sentence that the court imposed was a $750 fine for the careless driving and an absolute discharge on the assault charge. Mr. Bieber’s criminal conduct should have resulted in serious consequences, but instead he received a light sentence today. The harm that Justin Bieber has inflicted on my clients, Todd Gillis and Sean O’Neill is very serious and may have inflicted life-long damage to them. Unless and until courts hand down sentences that are proportionate to the crimes that Justin Bieber has committed, we are very concerned that he may continue to present a risk of harm to others.

05.29.15 – Gloria announces breaking news on alleged victim’s lawsuit against Bill Cosby

05.29.15 – “We represent Judy Huth in her lawsuit against Bill Cosby. The Los Angeles County Superior Court previously rejected Mr. Cosby’s effort to get Ms. Huth’s complaint dismissed before any inquiry could be made into his conduct. Following that rejection, Mr. Cosby filed a petition asking the California Court of Appeal to order the L.A. County Superior Court to change its earlier ruling, and to dismiss Ms. Huth’s complaint without any further proceedings. Yesterday, the Court of Appeal ruled on Mr. Cosby’s petition. They rejected his effort to reverse the Superior Court’s decision which means that Judy Huth’s case against Mr. Cosby can now move forward. If Mr. Cosby asks the California Supreme Court to review this matter we will oppose that effort and also take steps to proceed with discovery which will include taking Mr. Cosby’s deposition. We are very happy about the Court of Appeal decision yesterday which allows Ms. Huth’s case to proceed rather than being dismissed. It is very important to Ms. Huth that she be able to have her day in court in this case.”

05.26.15 – Today Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed a new law extending the statute of limitations for criminal prosecution of rape. Alleged victim of Bill Cosby and attorney Gloria Allred attended the signing ceremony and then held a press conference in Nevada after the bill was signed into law.

05.26.15 – Attorney Gloria Allred and her client an alleged victim of Bill Cosby held a press conference today outside of the Nevada state legislature to react to Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval’s signing a bill (AB212) into law which would lengthen the statute of limitations for criminal prosecution of rape in Nevada. Ms. Allred and her client, Lise-Lotte Lublin, testified in support of the new law because many women had accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault in Nevada, but they were prevented from seeking criminal prosecution of Cosby because it was too late under Nevada’s existing law for the District Attorney to consider prosecution. Ms. Allred’s client, Ms. Lublin and her husband, Benjamin, had previously asked Nevada Assembly Member Irene Bustamante Adams to introduce the bill AB212.

05.06.15 – Today Gloria Allred held a press conference in Los Angeles with a young woman who alleged to police that she had been sexually assaulted by NFL football player Ray McDonald and he subsequently filed a defamation lawsuit against her.

05.06.15 – The District Attorney of Santa Clara County has not yet made a final decision as to whether or not they will prosecute Mr. McDonald. “We believe that Mr. McDonald (formerly a player for the 49ers and currently with the Chicago Bears) filed this lawsuit against my client in order to punish her for reporting the alleged rape to the police or to intimidate her.” In our legal opinion, Mr. McDonald’s lawsuit against our client is against California law and public policy and that is why today we have responded with a motion to strike his lawsuit and have it dismissed with sanctions against him. In addition to our motion to strike and dismiss Mr. McDonald’s lawsuit against our client, yesterday we also filed a cross complaint lawsuit on behalf of our client against Mr. McDonald. In it our client alleges assault and battery, negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment. She is seeking damages according to proof at trial. Our client is determined to fight Mr. McDonald in this civil case. “We will not allow NFL football players or any other rich and famous person to intimidate persons who allege that they are rape victims. We look forward to winning justice and to sending a message that we plan to fight back and win.”

05.02.15 – Gloria Allred and her client, Lili Bernard an alleged Bill Cosby victim, join protests and hold press conference in Atlanta, GA where Bill Cosby is performing tonight.

05.02.15 – Bill Cosby is scheduled to perform at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre tonight in Atlanta, GA.

05.01.15 – Two women who allege that they were drugged and victimized by Bill Cosby and have never before spoken publicly held a news conference today in New York with their attorney Gloria Allred.

05.01.15 – Gloria Allred appeared at a press conference today in New York with 2 brave women who have never previously spoken out in public about their allegations that Mr. Cosby victimized them. One is a writer, Sammie Mays. The other alleged victim is Lili Bernard. Ms. Bernard is an actress who did a guest appearance as a main character in an episode in the last season of the Cosby Show. She alleges that Mr. Cosby drugged and raped her when he was mentoring her in preparation for her appearance in a principal role on the Cosby. Ms. Allred reported that Lili Bernard broke her silence and went to the Atlantic City, NJ police yesterday to file charges against Mr. Cosby. Unlike most states, New Jersey has no statute of limitations for rape.

04.29.15 – Gloria Allred holds press conference in Fairfax, VA to file a $20 Million wrongful death lawsuit with her client Joshua Sylvia-Najdi whose father, a tow truck driver, was killed on the beltway.

04.29.15 – Joshua’s father, Hicham Najdi, was killed on December 29, 2014 by the driver of a Green Line box truck in Fairfax County. Allred points out that “this case is important because it involves a violation of Virginia’s “Move Over Law” which was passed for the protection of emergency responders, law enforcement, tow truck drivers, and members of the public who might need to be in the shoulder lane, because they are an emergency vehicle or because they are assisting a vehicle in an emergency situation.” The complaint alleges that the truck driver, with a bad driving record, did not follow Virginia’s Move Over Law, was also using a cellphone and the truck’s brakes were defective. “Of course no amount of money will ever compensate Josh and his two siblings for the death of their father, but we are very proud of Josh for speaking out and reminding the public that it is extremely important to follow the “Move Over Law” stated Allred. “We are looking forward to working with him and fighting to achieve justice in his case.”

04.23.15 – Bill Cosby- Saint or Sexual Predator? Three new alleged victims of Cosby held a news conference today in Los Angeles with their attorney Gloria Allred.

04.23.15 – Three new women, Janice Baker-Kinney, Marcella Tate and Autumn Burns, who have never previously spoken about their allegations against Cosby, explained in detail what Ms. Cosby did to them. Janice was a bartender at Harrah’s in Nevada where she was allegedly assaulted by Mr. Cosby in the Harrah’s off site mansion. Marcella was a model at the time of the alleged incident and was victimized at the Playboy Mansion in Chicago. Autumn worked as a baccarat starter at the International Hotel in Las Vegas where she was invited up to Cosby’s suite and allegedly drugged and sexually assaulted. Ms. Allred sent this message to Mr. Cosby: “Perhaps he mistakenly believes that no more women will come forward alleging they are victims. If that is what he thinks, we are here today to tell him he is wrong. I can assure him that there will be more, because women are no longer going to be intimidated by Cosby’s celebrity, money or power.”

04.07.15 – Today Gloria Allred filed a dismissal for a lawsuit against Kanye West for wrongfully assaulting her client Daniel Ramos on July 19, 2013.

04.07.15 – On July 19, 2013, Kanye West, a world-famous musician, wrongfully assaulted a videographer who was simply exercising his free speech and doing his job. On August 21, 2013 we filed a lawsuit on behalf of that videographer Daniel Ramos. This case was set for trial next week on April 14, 2015. However, today we filed a dismissal because the case was settled to the satisfaction of the parties. We cannot discuss the details of the settlement, except to say that one important aspect of it was an apology by Kanye West to our client, Daniel Ramos. After the apology, a picture was taken of Mr. West shaking Mr. Ramos’ hand.

Today two new women, who allege that they believe that they were drugged and sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby held a news conference with their attorney, Gloria Allred in Los Angeles. The alleged victims described in detail what they allege Bill Cosby did to them and why they are coming forward now. One alleges that she was sexually assaulted at the Playboy Mansion. The other knew Bill Cosby when she was a child, and alleges that she was 17 when the assault occurred. Ms. Allred also commented on Cosby’s recent pajama video and why she continues to bring women forward.

If the bill becomes law, it will benefit many rape victims in Nevada even if they are not alleged victims of Bill Cosby.

03.13.15 – Ms. Allred is testifying because she also represents a number of other women who allege that they were drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby in Nevada, but who are also unable to either file a civil lawsuit against Cosby or have him criminally prosecuted because it is too late to do either under the existing statute of limitations. “Existing law requires that criminal proceedings for sexual assault must commence, by way of indictment, criminal information or complaint, within 4 years after the commission of the offense.” This bill eliminates that limitation and provides that there is no limitation of time within which a prosecution for sexual assault must be commenced. The alleged victim of Bill Cosby, Lise-Lotte Lublin will urge that the law be changed because under current Nevada law it is too late for Bill Cosby to be criminally prosecuted for what she alleges he did to her.

Today we are honored to be joined by the courageous couple April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse from Michigan, whose case will be decided by our nation’s highest court. Their case is DeBoer v. Snyder and the decision in their case will have an impact on marriage equality nationwide because in granting the petition for writs of certiorari, the U.S. Supreme Court said it would answer the following question: “Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex?”

02.12.15 – Bill Cosby: Is he “Far From Finished”? Two more women who allege that they were victims of sexual misconduct by Bill Cosby held a news conference with their attorney Gloria Allred to describe what they suffered because of what they allege Bill Cosby did to them.

02.12.15 – Linda Brown and Lise-Lotte Lublin were 21and 23 years old models when they met Bill Cosby through their modeling agencies. Both believe that they were drugged and one believes she became the victim of sexual violence by Bill Cosby. While these and other victims are suffering, Bill Cosby continues to try to complete what he calls his “Far From Finished” tour. Gloria Allred states that she is “appalled and disgusted by what so many women have told her about Mr. Cosby. The public should ask why Mr. Cosby prefers to battle it out in the court of public opinion rather than placing his confidence in a judge and jury as the alleged victims are willing to do. Justice is long overdue for these brave women and they will be silent no more!”

01.23.15 – Ms. Allred holds press conference in Palm Springs with client whose wife attacked his penis with scissors during sex. She and her client speak outside the Courthouse following the sentencing.

01.23.15 – Today Virginia Valdez was sentenced for the crime that she committed three years ago against her then husband Cesar Valdez. Previously Ms. Valdez entered a plea to assault with a deadly weapon (ADW) with a scissors which is a “one strike” felony. She was sentenced to 420 hours of community service, three years’ probation and a ten year restraining order preventing her from contact with Cesar Valdez. Cesar is speaking out today because he feels that he has been the victim of a double standard and that domestic violence against men is not taken as seriously as spousal violence against women. Is there a double standard? Cesar feels that there is and that men are less likely to be believed because of stereotypes about men. As a feminist Ms. Allred believes that the saying “there is no excuse for abuse” applies equally to men and women. Violence is horrific whether the victims are male or female.

01.07.15 – Today Attorney Gloria Allred, along with three new women who allege that they were victims of Bill Cosby, held a press conference in Los Angeles to describe what happened to them and explain why they are coming forward now.

01.07.15 – At a press conference today in Los Angeles, Attorney Gloria Allred appeared with three new women who allege that they are victims of Bill Cosby. The women described what they allege Mr. Cosby did to them when they were young and very vulnerable. Ms. Allred responded to reports that some alleged victims of Cosby are being investigated by his representatives and she discussed the women’s rights protest being held in Canada this week to address Mr. Cosby’s performances there. Ms. Allred also responded to Phylicia Rashad’s “pathetic” defense of Mr. Cosby stating that Ms. Rashad should be supporting these brave women who have come forward because they refuse to suffer in silence. “They deserve respect and dignity.”

I start every day with the knowledge that helping people and fighting for justice is my duty, and that nothing worthwhile comes without sacrifice, self- discipline, and courage.
