U.S. judge dismisses lawsuit against Bill Cosby by Pennsylvania woman

A U.S. federal judge on Thursday dismissed a defamation lawsuit brought by a Pennsylvania woman against Bill Cosby, which contended the comedian smeared her character when he accused her of lying in claiming he had sexually assaulted her.

Renita Hill, 48, a Pittsburgh resident, said in October she filed the lawsuit for comments made by Cosby's representatives after she spoke publicly of alleged sexual misconduct in the 1980s.
