A California state appellate court has ruled against Bill Cosby and in favor of one of his accusers, supermodel Janice Dickinson, reviving her defamation claims against the embattled comedian’s lawyer.

In a Nov. 21 order, the Second District Court of Appeal concluded that a lower court had erred in dismissing Dickinson’s first amended complaint, which added Cosby’s attorney, Martin Singer, as a defendant. Dickinson has alleged that Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982, and that he and Singer defamed her by publicly denying her allegations after she voiced them in 2014.
