She testified that she spoke with Cosby for two hours immediately after she learned of the assault, which Andrea did not mention until a year later. He also dismissed the district attorney's pledge to retry the case.
Smolla said the outcome of any civil case would depend on how jurors behave in terms of how seriously they take the case, how they relate to one another and how they deal with holdout jurors.
Jurors deliberated more than 52 hours over six days before telling a judge they couldn't reach a unanimous decision on whether "The Cosby Show" star drugged and molested Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004.
Wyatt also claimed that both Camille Cosby and the jury had gotten their power back before taking aim at lawyers for the accusers, notably Gloria Allred. Prosecutors suggested he drugged her with something stronger. "And I want to thank the jury for their long days".
Cosby, who gave the deposition as part of Constand's lawsuit against him, said he got seven prescriptions for the powerful sedative in the 1970s for the goal of giving them to women with whom he wanted to have sex. It was the only criminal case stemming from dozens of accusations of sexual misconduct - all of which Cosby denies.
"The defamation case is this clever way of saying, If I say you raped me and you say it didn't happen, then you're defaming me by calling me a liar", he said. Also testifying was Kelly Johnson, who accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 1996, which the prosecution hoped would show a pattern of behavior by Cosby.
She filed a civil suit against him in 2005, claiming that one day Cosby gave her pills that left her paralyzed during a non-consensual sexual encounter.
After that, the prosecutors closed their case Friday.
Cosby chose not to testify at trial.
The jury had been instructed by the judge to work into the weekend to reach a verdict, after they first revealed that they were deadlocked on the case on Thursday. Lawyer Brian McMonagle told jurors that while Cosby had been unfaithful to his wife, he didn't commit a crime.
When they told the judge Saturday morning they were still deadlocked, he declared a hung jury and a mistrial.
She had told jurors that the comedian attacked her after drugging her with pills he said would help her to "relax" during a dinner at his house in 2004. The defense frequently emphasized Camille's presence in the courtroom to solidify the infidelity narrative to the jury, with McMonagle directly apologizing to Camille at one point as he reviewed a decade-old testimony in which her husband talked about "petting" with Constand.
Cosby's wife of more than 50 years, Camille, was in the courtroom Monday.
In the deposition, the I Spy star stated that he gave Constand three half-tablets of Benadryl before the touching began. However, Pennsylvania law allows the judge to order the sentences to be served concurrently, meaning Cosby could serve from five to ten years in prison.
The bit went viral, and suddenly Cosby's alleged assaults were back in the news.
