Judge Allows 5 More Bill Cosby Accusers to Testify at Retrial

Bill Cosby sought to block Janice Dickinson from using both a press release from Cosby's camp and a letter his reps sent to media outlets in her case

At the first trial, O'Neill allowed only one other accuser to testify that Cosby assaulted her in Los Angeles in the 1990s.

Cosby, a former Temple Board of Trustees member, is facing three counts of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and assaulting Constand, a former Temple employee, at his Montgomery County home in 2005.

The women include model Janice Dickinson.

James also brought up the "MeToo" movement, suggesting increased awareness of sexual harassment and assault since the first trial would unfairly harm Cosby if multiple accusers were allowed to testify.

O'Neill has yet to rule on whether Cosby's lawyers can tell jurors about his 2006 settlement with Constand. In Cosby's first trial past year, just one accuser, Kelley Johnson, was allowed to testify.

In order to keep some pressure off the shoulders of Sexton, Hall, Ingram and John Petty must step up to hit a few key shots. Hightower played a big role in Georgia's victory over Vanderbilt on Wednesday night, when he scored 13 and had six assists.

Bill Cosby arrives with publicist Andrew Wyatt for a pretrial hearing on March 6, 2018.

The doctrine played a small role in a Pennsylvania court ruling that was issued a year ago after O'Neill delivered his decision on previous accusers for the first trial. It will reportedly be up to prosecutors to choose which accusers testify.

Steele sought other accusers to bolster Constand's accusation by establishing a pattern of alleged "prior bad acts" by Cosby. They must let the court and Cosby's defense team know by March 19. The woman says she became "immobilized" after taking a blue pill Cosby gave her, and awoke with "a sharp pain in her buttocks".

Another possible witness was a massage therapist who says she met Cosby at a Las Vegas health club between 1982 and 1984, according to court records. O'Neil only permitted the woman who accused him of the assault in 2004, Andrea Constand, and another woman who accused the comedian of sexual misconduct in 1996.
