Judy Huth’s lawyers will set out the evidence they expect to present to prove that Cosby compelled her to do a sex act at the Playboy Mansion when she was 16 years old in 1975. Huth’s testimony will be key in the case, which will be strengthened by images and other archival evidence to help place the incident in context.

Cosby’s lawyers, who claim no sexual abuse occurred, are likely to underline that the plaintiffs bear the whole burden of proof in the almost 50-year-old case. They accept that Cosby took Huth to the Playboy Mansion, as evidenced by a photo from the visit, but claim she was not a child at the time.

After a court concluded that Cosby could invoke his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, he will not testify. He also had no intentions to travel from his home in Pennsylvania to attend the trial, which will be held in a small courthouse in Santa Monica. According to Cosby’s representatives, glaucoma has rendered him blind, making travel impossible.

The Associated Press does not normally name people who say they have been sexually abused, unless they come forward publicly, as Huth has.
