An L.A. Superior Court judge today denied Bill Cosby’s attempt to shut down part of Janice Dickinson’s defamation lawsuit against him, stemming from his alleged 1982 drugging and sexual assault of the former supermodel.

“The court is requesting the parties to submit further briefing,” said Judge Debre Weintraub Monday morning, according to Deadline.com.

At the heart of the defamation case is the press releases made by Cosby’s now former attorney Marty Singer in late November 2014 branding Dickinson a “liar.” After being added to case as a defendant in an amended complaint, Singer was removed on February 9. The remaining parties are now all expected back in the judge’s courtroom on March 29.

All parties were back in the downtown courtroom today in another attempt by Cosby’s team to thwart Dickinson’s civil suit against him Dickinson’s lawyer Lisa Bloom told Deadline after the brief hearing that “we’re happy to provide further evidence in the case.” She added, “All Janice Dickinson wants is her day in court against Bill Cosby.”
