Kathrine Mae McKee was set to sue Bill Cosby for raping her, but she missed the deadline. Radar Online, April 15, 2016, reported that Kathrine had until March 21, 2016, to file the necessary documents against Bill and she totally missed the date to do it.
In December 2014, Kathrine Mae McKee claimed Bill Cosby raped her in 1974 and when Bill’s lawyer called her a liar, Kathrine decided to sue them for defamation. She received the summons and complaint papers in December 2015, believing at the time that she had 120 days to serve the papers but she was wrong. It was then that she discovered the deadline had expired because she was allowed only 90 days to serve him.
One of the problems that may be causing Kathrine McKee so much trouble is she has not hired an attorney to represent her. Kathrine is acting as her own legal counsel and she is having a difficult time in figuring out what to do. She claims the papers are complicated and she could not find Bill’s address.
Kathrine maintains that she tried everything possible to find out Bill Cosby’s address, but to no avail. “I made diligent efforts. I researched various internet search engines, blogs, and news stories.” Still she could not find out where Bill lived. When she thought she found the right address of where he resided, she mailed the necessary papers to him. However, “the US Postal Service failed to deliver my package” and it was marked “returned to the sender.”
After the legal documents were returned, Kathrine contacted Bill Cosby’s lawyer to obtain the correct and current address. However, she got the address too late and now she needs more time. On April 5, Kathrine petitioned the court to request an additional 60 days.
To date, the judge has not ruled whether he will grant Kathrine the extra days or not.
Kathrine McKee is the former girlfriend of Sammy Davis Jr. and she claims that Bill Cosby sexually assaulted her at a hotel. The alleged incident happened in a hotel room in Michigan when Kathrine was on the road with Sammy. Apparently, Bill asked her to go to a BBQ place called Checker Bar-B-Q in Detroit for some of their delicious ribs, She was to deliver it to his hotel room and then pick him up to take him to a boat party.
“I remember I walked in the door, and he had a robe and cap on. He took the ribs from my hands and just grabbed me. He spun me around, pulled my panties down, and just took it. We were still standing at the door when he attacked me. It was so fast and so shocking and so unbelievable.”
Over 50 women have come forward to accuse Bill Cosby of drugging them and/or taking sexual advantage of them. In an earlier deposition, he admitted to giving Quaaludes to women he wanted to have sex with.
In view of Kathrine Mae McKee’s difficulties, should she have hired an attorney to help her? Will the judge grant her an extension of 60 days or is she out of luck giving Bill Cosby a slight win?
