Three of the women who have accused veteran American comedian, Bill Cosby, of sexual assault, have sued him for defamation.

Tamara Green, Linda Traitz and Therese Serignese have all slammed the comedian with a defamation lawsuit claiming that his alleged lies have ruined their reputations.

According to TMZ, Tamara Green first sued Cosby claiming he was untruthful when he denied her sexual assault allegations. The celebrity website have also updated the report, saying that Linda and Therese have joined the lawsuit.

The women cannot sue Bill Cosby for the alleged sexual assault because the statute of limitations ran decades ago, but they think Cosby's subsequent denials have opened the door to a defamation suit.

Bill Cosby has come under fire after several women came public with their alleged sexual assault ordeals in the hands of the comedian.
