Ex-lawyers of Bill Cosby has sued the disgraced comedian over hundreds of thousands of dollars in unpaid legal fees, Page Six reports.
Schnader Harrison Segal and Lewis, a Philadelphia-based law firm, claimed earlier this month that Cosby has refused to pay for almost a year of services that it rendered.
One of the firm’s partners, Sam Silver, had represented Cosby in his criminal and civil cases.
The complaint, which was filed in Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas, said that Cosby, who was sentenced to three to 10 years in prison for sexual assault on Tuesday, owed $282,948, plus fees. He was previously hit with a lawsuit by the firm seeking $50,000 in back invoices.
In April, Cosby was convicted of three counts of aggravated indecent assault for drugging and sexually harassing Andrea Constand in his Pennsylvania home in 2004.
