Provided By - Vidible on May 16, 2018
Brown University has revoked the honorary doctorate it awarded to Bill Cosby as the comedian and actor faces allegations that he sexually assaulted more than 40 women, the Ivy League school said on Tuesday. Dozens of women have accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting them in the 1970s, though he has not been criminally charged and in most cases the alleged attacks are too old for prosecutors to take up. A Cosby spokesman declined to comment on Brown's move but on Friday, the actor's lawyer said Fordham had overstated the case made by the deposition.
