A federal judge on Thursday dismissed a defamation lawsuit against Bill Cosby that was filed by Sammy Davis Jr.’s former lover, Katherine McKee, reports the New York Daily News.

In 2014, McKee alleged Cosby raped her after inviting her to a boat party in Detroit, the report says. After being asked by Cosby to get some ribs from a local barbecue spot, she stated, “I remember I walked in the door, and he had a robe and cap on. He took the ribs from my hands and just grabbed me,” writes the News.

When McKee brought on the defamation lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianni in Massachusetts ruled that the now 79-year-old comedian acted within his rights when declaring himself innocent. McKee did not prove that Cosby defamed her by denying her claims.

McKee was a former Las Vegas showgirl, actress and she frequently partied with Sammy Davis Jr.’s Rat Pack. McKee’s case is one of many brought against Bill Cosby for sexual assault.
