The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office has announced they will not file any criminal charges against Bill Cosby after failing to find sufficient evidence to back a model's claim that she was drugged and sexually assaulted by the comedian at a Playboy Mansion party in 2008.

Moreover, the prosecutor declined to bring charges in a second woman's claims that she was drugged and raped in 1965 by Cosby when she was 17, saying the statute of limitations had expired.

"We are satisfied that the Los Angeles DA's Office fully and fairly evaluated all the facts and evidence, and came to the right conclusion," says a statement from Cosby's attorney.

At the same time, Cosby's legal team also welcomed a California appeals court ruling that Janice Dickinson, who has filed a defamation suit against Cosby for denying that he sexually assaulted her, has no right to force Cosby to give a deposition in her case.

"We are pleased that the legal issues we brought to the Court of Appeal were fairly heard and ruled upon in our favor," Cosby's attorneys said.

However, People magazine reports that in the alleged Playboy Mansion incident, Chloe Goins, 25, is still pursuing a federal civil lawsuit. Goins alleges that as an 18-year-old attending a party at the mansion, she was given a drink by Cosby and then immediately felt dizzy and sick to her stomach, after which Cosby escorted her to a room. Her suit claims she awoke with her clothes off to find Cosby biting on one of her toes, and with her breasts "wet and sticky, as if someone had been licking them."

Reports say investigators who reviewed exterior video footage of the August 9, 2008 party at the mansion could find no images of either Goins or Cosby, and further found evidence that Cosby was in New York on the weekend of the event, according to the prosecutor's office.
