Sources: Hastert engaged in sexual misconduct as a teacher

Dennis Hastert Allegedly Engaged in Sexual Misconduct With Male Individual During Time as Teacher, Sources SayThe alleged "misconduct" referenced in the indictment of former House Speaker Dennis Hastert is of a sexual nature involving a male individual, dating back to Hastert's time as a high school wrestling coach and history teacher in Yorkville, Illinois, sources with knowledge of the case told ABC News. Associates and former colleagues of Hastert expressed surprise and dismay today over allegations that he disbursed $1.7 million in hush money payments to conceal alleged misconduct from a period before he entered politics. The school district that employed Hastert from 1965 to 1981 as a high school history teacher and wrestling coach noted it "was first made aware of any concerns regarding Mr. Hastert when the federal indictment was released" Thursday.

Bill Cosby Loses Appeal to Dismiss Sexual Battery Lawsuit
Judy Huth claims that the entertainer committed sexual battery against her in 1974

Bill Cosby’s legal troubles continued on Wednesday, when the California Court of Appeal rejected Cosby’s petition to have a lawsuit filed against him dismissed.

The suit was filed late last year by Judy Huth, who claims that Cosby committed sexual battery against her in 1974, when she was 15 years old.

“We are very happy about the Court of Appeal decision yesterday which allows Ms. Huth’s case to proceed rather than being dismissed,” Huth’s attorney Gloria Allred said in a statement to EW. “It is very important to Ms. Huth that she be able to have her day in court in this case.”

Cosby is currently facing a number of lawsuits, including a defamation lawsuit from model Janice Dickinson, who, in 2014, publicly accused the comedian of drugging and raping her. Dickinson’s lawsuit, filed earlier this month, cites the emotional distress she has suffered after being accused of fabricating her claims.
