LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bill Cosby’s spokesman says an insurance company has settled another defamation suit filed by an accuser, this one by model Janice Dickinson. ?

Dickinson and lawyer Lisa Bloom have scheduled a press conference Thursday near Los Angeles.

Cosby spokesman Andrew Wyatt says American International Group Inc. settled the case without Cosby’s approval, as they’ve done with at least eight other women who say the comedian and his agent maligned them by denying their allegations.

Bloom promises a “major, final, legal victory” in Dickinson’s case.

Dickinson says Cosby drugged and raped her in 1982. She’s one of six accusers who testified at the 2018 criminal trial that led to Cosby’s conviction and a three- to a 10-year prison term for a 2004 sexual assault.

An AIG spokesman did not return messages seeking comment.
