There, the suit alleges, she accepted a drink, passed out and woke up while Cosby was sexually assaulting her.The suit outlines a second occasion around a year later, when Cosby invited Tarshis to a music event that he was appearing at.

She says she woke up in bed, naked, next to Cosby, feeling she had been penetrated vaginally and anally.Tarshis’ suit alleges assault, battery, infliction of emotional distress and false imprisonment and is seeking damages of an unspecified amount.Cosby’s representatives have not responded to invitations to comment.In 2014, Tarshis appeared on CNN Tonight [via Yahoo], accusing Cosby of rape.
