Dozens of women claim comedian Bill Cosby drugged and sexually abused them, and now, court documents from 2005 may help their case.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers has details.

The Associated Press obtained the documents in which Cosby admitted in 2005 to getting quaaludes with the intent of giving them to women he wanted to have sex with.

Those comments came from his testimony under oath in a lawsuit filed by a former Temple University employee. He settled with her for undisclosed terms in 2006.

Civil rights attorney Gloria Allred represents 17 of the 40 women accusing Cosby.

(Allred) "Mr. Cosby's been attempting to avoid and evade answering directly this question and now, his answer is out."

Cosby's lawyers fought the AP's efforts, saying it would embarrass their client.

An admission made by embattled comedian Bill Cosby 10 years ago, just being made public.

FOX News Radio's Sharon Katchen has the story.

In documents obtained by the Associated Press, Cosby admitted during a 2005 deposition in a sexual abuse lawsuit that he got quaaludes, intending to give them to young women with whom he wanted to have sex and that he gave former Temple University employee Andrea Constand three half-pills of Benadryl. Two women testified on Constand's behalf they had knowingly been given quaaludes.

The revelation comes as the 77-year-old Cosby is accused of sexual misconduct by more than two dozen women, including some who allege he drugged and raped them in incidents over four decades.
