In early April 2019, Cosby's home insurance company (AIG) settled a federal defamation lawsuit with seven women accused of lying by Cosby when they accused Cosby of sexual assault, but could no longer bring criminal charges because their allegations were too old. The suit was filed in December 2014, and the settlement terms were not disclosed. The seven women's accusations span decades, from 1969 until 1992. The seven are a subset of as many as 50 women who have spoken out accusing Cosby of sexual harassment and/or assault.  A spokesman for Mr. Cosby, Andrew Wyatt, stated that Cosby did not settle the case; rather, his insurance company American International Group settled without the "knowledge, permission, and/or consent of Mr. Cosby. Mr. Cosby vehemently denies the allegations brought against him in these defamation suits, and he maintains his innocence," There are currently three other cases active against Mr. Cosby around the country; one is another defamation case, and the other two are lawsuits directly related to their claims of sexual assault.
