LOS ANGELES -- A judge is scheduled to consider Monday whether to dismiss model Janice Dickinson's defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby.

The comedian's attorneys want Dickinson's case to be dismissed because they say Dickinson has given differing accounts of her interactions with Cosby over the years.

Dickinson sued Cosby in May over his denial of her claims that he drugged and raped her in Lake Tahoe in 1982. She says she tried to include the story in a 2002 memoir, but her publisher refused.

Cosby's former attorney has denied her claims and branded the model and reality television star a liar.

Dickinson's suit states the denial caused her to feel re-victimized about the incident.

Dozens of women have accused Cosby of sexual abuse, but in most instances the statutes of limitations have passed.
