Bill Cosby has one less thing to worry about.
Chloe Goins, the model who sued Cosby last year claiming he drugged her drink and nibbled her toes during a 2008 sexual assault inside the Playboy Mansion has dropped her lawsuit.
Read excerpts via NY Daily News:
Chloe Goins dismissed the action with a short filing in federal court in Los Angeles that did not elaborate on her motivation.
The voluntary dismissal was made “without prejudice,” meaning she hoped to reserve the right to possibly re-file at a later date.
Goins took her claims of the sedated sex assault to Los Angeles police in January 2015, but prosecutors declined last month to file charges, citing lack of sufficient evidence.
Goins, 25, filed the civil lawsuit in October claiming Cosby spiked her drink at a party at the pleasure palace then led her to a private room for the alleged assault.
She said she “blacked out” and woke up naked in a bed, feeling as if someone had been licking parts of her body, her lawsuit stated.
Cosby was masturbating and “biting one of her toes as he crouched at the end of the bed,” according to the suit.
“I have chosen to relive the ordeal of this deeply traumatic attack to expose the truth and bring justice for all the victims of sexual assault across the nation,” Goins said in a statement last year.
Cosby has denied the incident took place, with his former lawyer previously telling the Daily News the comedian wasn’t in Los Angeles at the time of the alleged assault.
The withdrawal came the same day that Cosby appeared in court in Philadelphia for the only criminal case against him. His lawyers are pushing for the dismissal of the felony count stemming from a 2004 sexual encounter with one-time Temple University athletic department worker Andrea Constand.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Craig Karlan ordered Tuesday that Cosby sit for a second deposition in the case of Judith Huth after his refusal to answer some questions in his first deposition in the case in October 2015. Huth claims in a civil suit that Cosby sexually assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles in 1974 when she was 15.
