Bill Cosby sued for alleged under-age sexual abuse

Bill Cosby is being sued for sexual assault by a woman who says the US comedian molested her when she was 15.

Judy Huth's lawsuit alleges that Cosby molested her at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles in 1974 and told her to lie about her age.

Cosby's lawyer had no immediate comment on the accusation.

Cosby, 77, has faced a series of renewed allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted more than a dozen women.

He has not been charged in connection with any of the allegations, which his lawyers have described as "discredited" and "defamatory".
