Things get worse for Bill Cosby.
A Philadelphia-based law firm is suing Cosby for failing to pay more than $282,000 in legal fees generated from representing the entertainer in civil and criminal cases related to sexual assault allegations that go back decades.
According to the Legal Intelligencer, Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis filed a complaint in state court in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, against the now-imprisoned entertainer on Sept. 21 demanding payment of their bills along with late fees, interest and costs.
Cosby hired the firm in March 2016, months after criminal charges were filed against him for drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand. He was represented by Schnader Harrison partner Sam Silver.
The 81-year-old Cosby paid for work Schnader Harrison performed through the end of June 2017, but he still owes the firm money from August 2017 to July 25 of this year. Silver continued to represent Cosby leading up to the April 2018 criminal trial despite the outstanding balances. He also represented Cosby in a breach-of-contract lawsuit that Cosby filed against Constand, which the entertainer dropped.
