The judge said in a ruling issued on Monday he's blocking discovery addressed to Cosby to avoid the "precarious dilemma" of Cosby having to choose whether to assert his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and put himself at a disadvantage in the Massachusetts case or waive that privilege and possibly incriminate himself in the Pennsylvania case.

Both cases involve women who've accused Cosby of sexual misconduct. Cosby denies their allegations.
