The women suing Bill Cosby for defamation will be allowed by a judge to view the 2005 case file of Andrea Constand, who is also suing the comedian for sexual assault.

NBC News reports that U.S. District Judge Anita Brody ruled in favor of Tamara Green and several other women suing Cosby, allowing them to view the case files with a lawyer. Green accused Cosby of sexual assault in 1970 and filed the defamation suit in December 2014.

Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis, and Angela Leslie later joined Green’s suit. This new key ruling gives the plaintiffs a limited amount of information, but the women are hoping it will help them prove their claims.

The case files belong to lawyer Dolores Troiani.

Troiani represents Andrea Constand, who says she was drugged and molested by the actor at his Philadelphia-area home in 2004. Troiani also represented Constand in 2005 when they reached a confidential settlement to a lawsuit against Cosby, reports NBC News.

Over 50 women have accused Cosby of sexual assault. He has counter-sued some of the women for inflicting emotional distress, and “for their malicious, opportunistic and false and defamatory accusations of sexual misconduct.” The criminal charges from Constand’s case were also derailed by the comedian’s attorneys, who are currently pursuing an appeal to dismiss the case.

In December 2015, the 78-year-old was officially charged with aggravated indecent assault against Constand. He was released on a $1 million bond in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
