Bill Cosby's 1974 Playboy Mansion sex civil trial was set for July 30 next year by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Craig Kaplan, as the comedian's legal problems continue to mount.

Judy Huth charged that Cosby sexually assaulted her at Hugh Hefner's home some 42 years ago when she was 15, Deadline reported. While the criminal statute of limitations had long expired, Deadline said she was still able to bring a civil case against Cosby since she was a minor at the time of the alleged incident.

A 2004 criminal rape case against Cosby, 79, involving former Temple University employee Andrea Constand ended in a hung jury in Pennsylvania this month, but Montgomery County district attorney Kevin Steele has vowed the retry the case, reported the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Cosby was questioned in a seven-hour deposition in the Huth case last October, reported Deadline.com. Kaplan ordered both sides to return to court Sept. 14 to determine if a second Cosby deposition will be ordered.

Huth's attorney, Gloria Allred, attended Cosby's criminal trial in Pennsylvania and held a news conference afterward.

The Huth case hardly scratches the surface of Cosby's legal troubles in civil court, The Associated Press reported

Former model Chloe Goins is suing Cosby in California, claiming that the comedian drugged and sexually abused her at the Playboy Mansion in 2008.

While prosecutors declined to file a criminal case against Cosby based on Goins' allegations, a judge also refused to dismiss the civil case, with that trial set for June 2018, the AP noted.

Model Janice Dickinson is suing Cosby in a defamation lawsuit. Dickinson charges that Cosby drugged and raped her in Lake Tahoe, California, in 1982, according to the AP. The comedian is currently appealing a ruling that is allowing Dickinson's case to proceed.

In Massachusetts, Cosby is facing separate defamation lawsuits from seven women, which are all pending, according to the AP. Cosby owns a home in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts.
