It seems that Bill Cosby’s unfortunate lack of vision may be the thing to help in his legal battle with several women that have accused him of sexual assault. Yesterday Cosby and lawyers filed that the comedy icon is ‘legally blind’ and will not be able to identify his accusers in court. Interesting.
Bill Cosby’s lawyers argued in court documents filed in Pennsylvania on Thursday, October 27, that the Hollywood icon is “legally blind” and therefore would be unable to identify his accusers. “No 79-year-old blind man could possibly defend himself against a claim that he sexually assaulted someone he supposedly met once, half a century ago,” the attorneys claim in the filing,“Without his eyesight, Mr. Cosby cannot even determine whether he has ever even seen some of his accusers, let alone develop defenses and gather exculpatory evidence,” the documents further state, according to CNN.
