LOS ANGELES (AP) A lawyer for Bill Cosby says the comedian will not dignify "decade-old, discredited" allegations of sexual abuse with any comment.

In a statement released to The Associated Press and posted online, attorney John P. Schmitt said the fact that the allegations are being repeated does not make them true.

He doesn't intend to "dignify" the allegations with a comment.

There has been a growing uproar over allegations that Cosby assaulted several women in the past.
