The former supermodel, 62, filed a complaint against Cosby, 80, over his response to a 2014 interview with Entertainment Tonight in which she said that the actor had sexually assaulted her in 1982 after giving her an unknown pill. Soon after that interview aired, Cosby's attorney Marty Singer responded to requests for comment by disputing Dickinson's claim that she was drugged and raped by his client and calling the allegation 'an outrageous defamatory lie.' The judge ruled on Tuesday that because he sent out that statement and a subsequent press release Singer too will face claims in the case. 'We fail to see how justice is served by granting Singer a windfall immunity based on Cosbys pursuit of a meritless motion,' wrote California Second District Court of Appeals Associate Justice Laurence Rubin. It was also ruled that Dickinson could recover all legal costs related to the appeal from Singer and Cosby... Dickinson's attorney Lisa Bloom issued a statement on Tuesday praising her client for her bravery... One day after disputing the claims, Singer sent a lengthy press release to multiple outlets on Cosby's behalf.

[singing] let's all sing like the birdies sing, tweet, tweet tweet, tweet tweet...
Paging Bill Clinton, paging Mr. Clinton, please pick up the red courtesy phone in the lobby...
Yea, they’re coming after you too Big Dawg.
Bill Cosby may be better off paying some fines, then just leaving the country.
There is too much of a fever going on in America right now for him to ever have a normal life.
It’s unfortunate that he will be mostly remembered for this sprawling mess he created so long ago.
The Left knew about Cosby but didn’t say jack until he started speaking out about how black kids were not being educated properly and coming from single Mothers.
He's been doing that for many years, and more than made up for it with boilerplate racist leftist crap. When the accusations started to arrive in a torrent -- time was running out, he's pretty old now -- and Amy Poehler and Tina Fey tore into him with their idea of jokes, at the 2015 Golden Globes, the race war within the Demwit party, which has been bubbling away on the back burner for a long while now, busted out all over.
So lemme get this straight - he paid her without any admission of guilt. She publicly defames him he defends the accusation and she wins?
This is not justice in any shape or form and this judge should be ashamed.
Was at a celebrate tennis tournament in 1982. Charlton Heston, Robert Culp, Cosby, Farrah Fawcett, Brooke Shields, Lucile Ball, and others were there.
All were wonderful, except Cosby, who kept asking all the guests if they “wanted some black snake?”
You didn’t get it straight.
Janice looks like Steven Tyler of Aerosmith. Plus she’s a whack job.
I have always believed that because he spoke the truth they would never let him get away with it.
I don’t think attorneys should be civilly liable for doing what everyone expects them to do.
If she thought she was raped she should have seen a doctor.
The doctor could have had her piss in a cup and had the urine analyzed for drugs.
Oh, I wondered why they put a picture of Caitlyn Jenner in the article.
Dickinson in 1982.
That is totally disgusting. If I had my way, that filthy old man and abuser of hundreds of females would be strung up by his withered balls in Rittenhouse Square.
Wow! She was gorgeous! Cosby’s Motto:I came, I saw, I conquered...usually with disabling drugs in her drink! I pray he lives long enough to go to jail...the filthy old decrepit swine.
