BOSTON – A federal judge refuses to throw out a defamation lawsuit filed by three women who accuse Bill Cosby of sexual abuse.

The women claim Cosby’s representatives damaged their reputations by denying their allegations and making disparaging remarks.

They say Cosby drugged them and assaulted them decades ago.

The judge rejected the arguments of Cosby’s lawyers, who said the remarks made were protected by the First Amendment.
