More bad news for Bill Cosby: A 55-year-old woman is suing him for allegedly molesting her in a bedroom at the Playboy Mansion when she was just 15 years old, TMZ reports. The lawsuit, filed in LA County Superior Court, says Judy Huth and a friend met Cosby at an outdoor film set in 1974 and accepted his invitation to hang out at a tennis club the following week. According to the suit, they played billiards with Cosby and abided by his rule of drinking beer whenever they lost a game. Then he allegedly invited them to the Playboy Mansion and said that if questioned, they should claim to be 19 years old.

The suit claims that when Cosby took Huth to a bedroom in the mansion, he started to "sexually molest her by attempting to put his hand down her pants, and then taking her hand in his hand and performing a sex act on himself without her consent." Huth says the alleged encounter left her psychologically and emotionally scarred, but only recently did she realize why she was so damaged—at which time she filed the suit. (Janice Dickinson calls Cosby a "monster" who raped her, and Cosby has quit the board at Temple University, his alma mater.)
