Gloria Allred Suing ATL Venue That Banned Her from Cosby Gig

Gloria Allred, the lawyer representing a number of women accusing Bill Cosby of sexual assault, has filed a federal suit against an Atlanta concert venue she claims denied her entry to the comedian’s standup show on May 2, when his team placed her on a “security watch list.”

Allred said she wanted to “gain insight that would help me” in her cases and “did not intend to disrupt Mr. Cosby’s show.”

But she claims security at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center asked to see her ID before two officers took her to a room and informed her she’d been placed on a “list.”

Allred alleges she was ordered to leave or be arrested for “criminal trespass” and that her First Amendment rights and right to due process were violated.
