Pittsburgh-area woman sues Bill Cosby for defamation, abuse

Pittsburgh - A Pittsburgh-area woman who appeared on television with Bill Cosby as a teenager has sued him, claiming he defamed her after she gave an interview detailing his alleged sexual abuse in the 1980s.

Renita Hill's lawsuit was filed Wednesday in Pittsburgh. Cosby's publicist and attorneys didn't immediately return messages Thursday.

The woman claims she was 16 when she met Cosby during a talent search in 1983 for an educational children's television show, "Picture Pages."

She says Cosby hired her and soon after began flying her to cities where he was performing. There, he'd give her alcohol she believes was laced with drugs and molest her in hotel rooms.

She also says statements Cosby issued questioning the honesty of his various accusers defamed her.

The AP doesn't normally identify people who say they are victims of sexual abuse unless they come forward publicly.
