LOS ANGELES - An attorney for a woman suing Bill Cosby for sexual battery says Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has given sworn testimony in the case.

Gloria Allred says Hefner provided a deposition on Wednesday at the Playboy Mansion but the contents of the testimony are under seal. Hefner gave the testimony in a case filed by Judy Huth, who alleges Cosby forced her to perform a sex act on him around 1974 at Hefner's mansion.

Hefner was sued along with Cosby on Monday by another woman who claims the comedian sexually abused her at the mansion in 2008.

Cosby has denied both women's allegations and his former lawyers have accused Huth of attempting to extort him before suing.

An email message sent to a Playboy spokeswoman seeking comment was not immediately returned.
