This was announced by Cosby’s spokesman Andrew Wyatt on Wednesday, according to a report by Variety magazine. Plaintiff Judy Huth will never receive any money from the 84-year-old former actor.

Wyatt also described the verdict in a civil lawsuit from the previous day as an amazing victory for Cosby. Although the Santa Monica, Calif., jury awarded the plaintiff $500,000 in damages, they would not have ordered Cosby to pay additional punitive damages. This could have been more than ten million dollars, the spokesman said.
