Meanwhile, the attorney who represents some of Cosby’s accusers warned that the comedian could face new defamation lawsuits should he embark on a tour where he claims vindication and puts his accusers in a negative light.

TheCable Lifestyle had reported how a top court overturned Cosby’s conviction, paving the way for his release from prison.

Cosby had been convicted of drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand, a former Temple University employee, in 2004.

The court ruling had resulted from an agreement the Hollywood actor struck with Bruce Castor, a district attorney, in 2005 in which he refused to prosecute Cosby in exchange for his testimony during a civil trial.

“Cosby’s convictions and judgment of sentence are vacated, and he is discharged,” the court held in its latest ruling.

The ruling also bars any retrial in the case.
