Bill Cosby Fights $6.7M Lawyer Bill

Bill Cosby is challenging an arbitrator’s decision that he pay nearly $7 million in fees to the law firm that represented him for nine months in 2015 and 2016 amid a slew of sexual assault and defamation allegations.

The result was filed in January and required Cosby to pay a $6.7 million bill to Quinn Emanuel Urquhart and Sullivan, $4.3 million of which had already been paid by Cosby and his insurers, American International Group (AIG).

Cosby is now serving 3 to 10 years in a state prison after he was convicted last year of drugging and sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

Cosby claims that the firm’s partner who was in charge of his cases, Christopher Tayback, did not read nor talk to him about the specifics of the retainer contract prior to him signing it, despite Cosby’s failing eyesight.

He now wants the ruling to be thrown out and for a new hearing with a different arbitrator to settle the dispute.
