Bill Cosby and his supporters went on the offensive Tuesday, launching a multipronged defense in response to a barrage of negative publicity following last weekend's release of his testimony in a 2005 sexual-assault lawsuit. In federal court in Philadelphia, Cosby's legal team asked a judge to sanction Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee and the accuser in the case, saying she and her lawyers failed to prevent a court reporting service from sharing the actor-comedian's deposition.

ATTORNEYS FOR embattled comedian Bill Cosby filed a motion late Tuesday in federal court seeking to block one of his accusers from releasing the now-infamous, nearly 1,000-page deposition from a settled civil case. Dolores M. Troiani, an attorney for Andrea Constand, had filed a motion July 8 asking U.S. District Judge Eduardo C. Robreno to lift the confidentiality clause from the settlement agreement. Constand filed a civil suit after the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office declined to file charges against Cosby.

The head of the Temple University faculty union said that board of trustees chairman Patrick O'Connor's representation of comedian Bill Cosby in a sexual-assault lawsuit posed a conflict of interest and that O'Connor should "seriously consider" stepping down. Art Hochner, president of the Temple Association of University Professionals, said Monday that O'Connor should have either stepped down from the Temple board before representing Cosby in 2005, or asked Cosby to find another lawyer.

FORMER Montgomery County District Attorney Bruce L. Castor Jr. remembers his office's 2005 investigation into claims of sexual misconduct by Bill Cosby. "At the time I thought he was guilty, and I certainly haven't changed my mind about that," said Castor, now a county commissioner. "His statements were vague and imprecise and not responsive to the questions. " Nonetheless, his office declined to file charges against Cosby, Castor said yesterday, due to a lack of forensics and alleged victim Andrea Constand's fuzzy recollection of the January 2004 night the alleged assault took place.

ISSUE | DATA BREACH Burned before As one of the 21.5 million people affected by the Office of Personnel Management data breach, I am far from comforted by the government's response. First, this is not the only time the OPM has adversely affected my life. Due to its temporary loss of my security clearance paperwork, I was let go from a government assignment after only three weeks. Second, I have grave doubts about the firm that the OPM retained to provide credit monitoring, since it seems to be passing the actual work on to an even less experienced firm.

The lawyer who represented Bill Cosby in a 2005 sexual assault lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee said Sunday his client had been treated unfairly by the release of new excerpts from a deposition Cosby gave in the case. Published Saturday by the New York Times, the excerpts included sworn testimony in which Cosby discussed his serial philandering, his use of his celebrity to bed starstruck young women, and his use of drugs in sexual encounters. But, lawyer Patrick O'Connor said in his first public statements since the transcript's release, that's only one side of the story.

INSTEAD of leading today's column with more unsavory Bill Cosby stuff (see below), let's congratulate the 2015 honorees of The Kennedy Center Honors, which celebrates its 38th year in December by honoring six big names instead of the usual five. While it's true that the honorees have gone from mostly high culture to mostly mainstream pop culture over the decades, reflecting the country's changing tastes in the arts, this year's group is impressive: American rock band the Eagles , singer-songwriter Carole King , "Star Wars" filmmaker George Lucas , actress and singer Rita Moreno , conductor Seiji Ozawa and actress and Broadway star Cicely Tyson . Each has enjoyed lengthy, ground-breaking careers.

Two more of Bill Cosby's accusers have joined in asking a federal judge in Philadelphia to release the full transcript of the actor-comedian's testimony in a 2005 assault and defamation civil case. In a motion filed Monday, Beth Ferrier and Rebecca Neal - both of whom have accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them in the 1980s - joined an earlier request to release his deposition in a case brought by Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee who alleged that Cosby drugged and molested her. U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno unsealed excerpts from the deposition last week, among other legal documents in the case.
