A Los Angeles Superior Court judge has ordered Bill Cosby to give a sworn deposition in a sexual-abuse lawsuit. The comedian is accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1974. He will have to submit to questions from the accuser’s lawyer under oath on Oct. 9. Judy Huth, one of dozens of women who say Cosby drugged and raped them, will answer questions from Cosby’s lawyers.
