Well, it appears efforts made by Bill Cosby’s legal team to thwart the Associated Press from obtaining documents from the comic’s 2005 sexual abuse lawsuit didn’t quite work out — because, on Monday, the newswire reported some pretty eye-opening information related to the several dozen rape accusations made against the 77-year-old.

From Mary Claire Dale’s AP story “Cosby said he got drugs to give women for sex”:

Bill Cosby testified in 2005 that he got Quaaludes with the intent of giving them to young women he wanted to have sex with, and he admitted giving the sedative to at least one woman and “other people” … The 77-year-old comedian was testifying under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He testified he gave her three half-pills of Benadryl.

The 2005 suit referred to in the story is one that has been mentioned several times over the months, with every allegation that since made headlines. Tamara Green had filed a lawsuit against Cosby for sexual abuse, and she had 13 other accusers named in the suit as well. (She had settled out of court for an undisclosed sum in November 2006.) Given the onslaught of recent events and the resurfacing of these allegations (BuzzFeed’s Kate Aurthur compiled a thorough timeline of events that explained how these accusations resurfaced — recommended reading), Green, along with alleged victims of molestation Therese Serignese and Linda Traitz, filed a motion in a Philadelphia court to make these files public.

Camp Cosby has not returned phone calls to the AP yet for comment.
