Bill Cosby sued over unpaid legal fees
A former member of Bill Cosby’s defense team is suing the comedian for more than $50,000 in unpaid legal fees. Cosby’s current attorney Joe P. Green says the claim arose from a “disagreement over the amount of legal fees charged” and that the actor had offered to submit the dispute to mediation.
The civil claim for failure to pay for legal services rendered was filed Tuesday (Sept. 4) by the Philadelphia-based law firm Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis.
However, it did not include the exact amount the firm is seeking for work done by attorney Samuel Silver from August 2017 through February.
The 81-year-old comedian was convicted in April of three counts of aggravated indecent assault. Sentencing is scheduled September 24.
