Bill Cosby’s Lawyers Are Arguing That He’s Now “Legally Blind” and Can’t Identify Accusers

Bill Cosby is on trial for allegedly sexually assaulting Andrea Constand, and his lawyers have drummed up a new, brow-raising defense for the shamed comedian and actor. Cosby’s legal team is arguing that their client is “legally blind,” leaving him unable to properly identify his accusers.

This NBC News report details that Cosby’s lawyers filed their claim on Thursday in Pennsylvania, and the official brief describes exactly how they plan on supporting that claim. “Without his eyesight, Mr. Cosby cannot even determine whether or not he has ever seen some of his accusers, let alone develop defenses and gather exculpatory evidence. Moreover, Mr. Cosby’s memory has substantially declined in the last decade.”

Yes, this is real, and it’s a solid enough defense to get a judge’s ear. The claim will likely be ruled on during Tuesday’s pretrial hearing, where prosecutors will undoubtedly argue like hell for that defense to be thrown out. If a judge rules in Cosby’s favor, the prosecution may not be able to call in 13 other women as witnesses like it reportedly plans to.
