A Los Angeles superior court judge has ordered Bill Cosby to give a sworn deposition in a pending lawsuit that alleges he sexually abused a teenage girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1974.

Under the Aug. 4 order, Cosby will be questioned by the lawyer of Judy Huth, who alleges that he made inappropriate sexual contact with her when she was 15 years old during a party at the Holmby Hills residence, the Guardian reports.

In court documents obtained by CNN, Huth accuses Cosby of inviting her and a friend to the Playboy Mansion after meeting them in a Los Angeles park. She alleges the comedian served them alcohol, asked Huth to sit on the bed beside him, and “then proceeded to sexually molest her by attempting to put his hand down her pants, and then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent.”

Huth is represented by attorney Gloria Allred, who told the Guardian that among the several pending cases against Cosby, Huth’s is the only one seeking damages for the alleged abuse itself. The others accuse Cosby of defamation in characterizing his accusers as liars.

Cosby’s deposition is scheduled for Oct. 9; Huth, in turn, will be deposed by his lawyers on Oct. 15.

Dozens of women have made accusations of sexual misconduct against Cosby in recent months. He has strenuously denied all allegations.
