(Reuters) - Comedian Bill Cosby on Thursday dropped the remaining counts of a lawsuit he filed against one of the women accusing him of sexual assault, along with several others, claiming they violated the terms of a confidential settlement in another lawsuit. The dismissal comes 10 days after U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno ruled that Cosby could not sue Andrea Constand, her mother, Gianna Constand, or her attorneys, Dolores Troiani and Bebe Kivitz, for speaking to investigators about her accusations. Cosby filed the suit in February, accusing the Constands, the lawyers and American Media Inc., publisher of the National Enquirer, of violating the terms of a 2006 confidential settlement.
Hillary Clinton on Thursday claimed her place in history as the first woman presidential nominee of a major US party, promising economic opportunity for all and rejecting Donald Trump's dark vision of America. Clinton repeated the convention's theme of "stronger together," declaring that her lifelong goal has been to ensure that Americans can use their talent and ambition to strengthen the nation. "And so it is with humility, determination, and boundless confidence in America's promise, that I accept your nomination for president of the United States," she said, as her president husband Bill and their daughter Chelsea looked on.
