Cosby arrives at court for pretrial hearing

 NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP), March 29 – Bill Cosby has arrived at the courthouse as his lawyers are expected to make a last-ditch effort to postpone the comedian’s sexual assault retrial.
Cosby arrived Thursday morning for the final pretrial hearing in suburban Philadelphia.

Cosby’s lawyers are expected to pressure Judge Steven O’Neill to step aside because they say his wife is a social worker who has described herself as an “advocate for assault victims.”

They lost a bid to overturn his ruling allowing up to five additional accusers to testify.

O’Neill presided over Cosby’s first trial, which ended in a hung jury last year. The retrial could be delayed indefinitely if he bows out.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday.
