Jurors found Bill Cosby sexually abused a 16-year-old girl in the civil suit filed by Judith Huth, who accused the former comedian of sexual assault at the Playboy mansion in 1975 when she was a teen.
Huth, now 64, told Fox News Digital shortly after the trial: "Victory is right. Love it. Happy as can be."
She was just a teenager when she and a friend met Cosby at a Los Angeles-area park, where he was filming the movie "Let’s Do It Again."
The 12 jurors nearly reached a verdict on Friday, but were forced to begin deliberations again on Monday morning after Judge Craig Karlan was required to clear the courtroom at the Santa Monica Courthouse at 4:30 p.m.
Karlan at first indicated he would accept a partial verdict in the case, but then had to change his mind when the bailiff informed him the building was closing and the Sheriff’s Department could not incur overtime expenses.
Nine of the 12 jurors — one was an alternate who stepped in on Monday — had to agree to reach a verdict on each issue with a "yes" or "no."
Cosby's representative, Andrew Wyatt told Fox News Digital: "This was a huge victory for us because they was looking for millions of dollars. That amount will not cover the legal bills and we will be appealing that matter. However, Mr. Cosby will not be paying punitive damages."
Wyatt previously released a statement at 4 p.m. regarding the verdict: "We have always maintained that Judy Huth, Gloria Allred and their cohorts fabricated these false accusations, in order to force Mr. Cosby to finance their racist mission against successful and accomplished Black Men in America."
Wyatt allegedly spelled Gloria's last name "AwlfulRed" throughout the rest of the notice as he wrote, "all Americans had a front row seat to witness AwlfulRed’s true obsession with Mr. Cosby. Even Gloria AwlfulRed’s racist attempt to hijack and exploit Juneteenth in open court yesterday, during a civil trial for Actor & Comedian Bill Cosby, which she’s suing for million of dollars without the sheer evidence of proof, truth and/or facts."
He continued: "We exposed Ms. AwlfulRed’s hatred for Black Men in America. For these many reasons, Mr. Cosby continues to maintain his innocence and will vigorously fight these false accusations, so that he can get back to bringing the pursuit of happiness, joy and laughter to the world."
