But back to Goldberg. After Abrams explained to her that due to the statute of limitations expiring on both civil and criminal suits against Cosby that "effectively, nothing can be done" in the courts thanks to this "legal technicality." Goldberg was shocked by that statement and said, “You’re saying all that is left to these women is the court of public opinion.” Abrams agreed and said that the women who have accused Cosby of sexual assault "make a much more compelling case" and that "it is impossible to ignore the consistency of these stories."
After a lot of legal talk, Goldberg came to the following conclusion:
There is no recourse for these women except what they are doing. If this is to be tried in the court of public opinion I gotta say, all of the information that’s out there kinda points to guilt. Now, again, I always thought they would have the opportunity to take him to court, but [Abrams is] saying that’s not true.
She claimed that Cosby is a "serial rapist" who has "been on the streets for 30 years." Plus, Goldberg even added that she can no longer say "innocent until proven guilty." The segment ended with Goldberg exclaiming, “It looks bad, Bill. Either speak up or shut up, 'cause people know now there’s a lot more out there than they thought.”
As Abrams and Goldberg both noted, Cosby has been very careful about commenting on the sexual assault claims.
The statement Cosby gave through his lawyers in November 2014 remains the same:
Over the last several weeks, decade-old, discredited allegations against Mr. Cosby have resurfaced. The fact that they are being repeated does not make them true. Mr. Cosby does not intend to dignify these allegations with any comment. He would like to thank all his fans for the outpouring of support and assure them that, at age 77, he is doing his best work. There will be no further statement from Mr. Cosby or any of his representatives.
