Defamation Suit Against Bill Cosby Dismissed (Blogger: Blowback, but justice will prevail.. These insane sex offenders or “sexual predator” must be forced (involuntary) treatment, to answer for their crimes.

A federal judge in Massachusetts on Thursday dismissed a defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby by an actress who claimed he raped her, ruling that the comedian acted within his rights when he proclaimed himself innocent of the crime. 
The civil lawsuit is one of a slew of cases brought against the actor, best known for playing the father in the 1980s television hit “The Cosby Show,” by about 50 women who say he sexually assaulted them, often after plying them with drugs and alcohol, in a series of alleged attacks dating back decades. 
The vast bulk of the claims are too old to be the subject of a criminal prosecution, though Cosby is also awaiting trial in Pennsylvania on charges he sexually assaulted a former basketball coach at his alma mater, Temple University. 
Cosby has denied wrongdoing in all the cases. 
U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianni wrote on Thursday that accuser Katherine Mae McKee had not demonstrated that Cosby defamed her simply by denying her claims, made in an interview with the New York Daily News. 
“An accused person cannot be foreclosed ... from considering the issuance of a simple and unequivocal denial — free from overall defamatory triggers or contextual themes,” Mastroianni wrote.
