Bill Cosby’s legal team says that the entertainer plans to resume his career in entertainment after the several legal cases against him are resolved. The news comes from a defamation case against the comedian in Massachusetts, where Cosby’s lawyers are seeking to seal documents from his agency that reveal his compensation for his performances, some of his contracts, and also reflect the cancellation of his business arrangements following accusations of sexual assault against him. The plantiffs have argued that Cosby couldn’t be hurt by this disclosure as he has no prospects in the entertainment business to speak of. Cosby’s lawyer Angela Agrusa has said that claim is baseless, because “when Mr. Cosby is cleared from all liability and charges, and the impact of Plaintiffs’ defamatory conduct has subsided, he expects to resume his career, and there is no reason to believe otherwise.” Cosby’s lawyers have also argued that he is legally blind and thus would have trouble recognizing his accusers. Among other lawsuits, Cosby is also on trial in Pennsylvania, facing charges of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand.
