LOS ANGELES (AFP): Veteran comic Bill Cosby counter-sued a woman who says he abused her, accusing her of trying to extort up to $250,000 from him. Judy Huth, 55, filed a lawsuit against Cosby in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, claiming battery and infliction of emotional distress in an alleged assault at the Playboy Mansion in 1974. But Cosby's Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer said in legal documents filed Thursday that Huth's attorney called him on November 25, initially offering to not proceed with the legal action in exchange for $100,000.
