(ABCNEWS) — Bill Cosby is in the hot seat, answering questions today at a deposition in a sexual assault case, a civil case that dates back decades, filed by Comedian Judith Huth.

Bill Cosby was ordered to answer questions, on camera and under oath. The comedic television star was deposed today about allegations he sexually abused Judy Huth at the Playboy Mansion in the 1970s, when Huth was 15.

“The lawsuit is moving forward as you can see,” said Gloria Allred, Attorney for Huth.

It’s part of a civil lawsuit against Cosby. Huth is one of more than 50 woman who have no come forward, accusing the 78-year-old of drugging or sexually assaulting them. He has never been charged with a crime. And Cosby’s lawyers have called Huth’s suit a “meritless and unsupported 40-year-old claim.”

“It was something that I didn’t think could ever happen to me, and just knowing that there’s others out there,” said Chloe Goins, Cosby Accuser.

Twenty-five year old Goins also filed a civil suit this week, claiming Cosby drugged and also assaulted her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008. She may pursue criminal charges.

“She is, we believe, squarely within the statute of limitations,” said Spencer Kuvin, Attorney For Goins.

“I would like to see justice for all of us,” said Goins.

This isn’t Cosby’s first deposition, either. In documents released from a 2005 civil lawsuit, Cosby admitted to obtaining Quaaludes to give to women. That case was settled out of court.

Malcolm Jamal Warner, who played his son on “The Cosby Show” says these allegations have “tarnished” the hit series’ legacy.

Bill Cosby’s deposition location is being kept secret and the content will be sealed until at least December, when a judge decides if any of it can be made public.
