Actor Bill Cosby, accused by more than 40 women of sexual assault, has filed a lawsuit claiming several of them lied about him for financial gain.

The 78-year-old is seeking unspecified monetary damages and said the women inflicted emotional distress.

He said the accusations were “nothing more than an opportunistic attempt to extract financial gain from him.”
