Cosby judge to weigh potential testimoney of 13 other women
NORRISTOWN, Pa. - Lawyers for Bill Cosby will battle in court starting today to try to limit the number of other accusers who can testify at the comedian's sexual assault trial.
Prosecutors near Philadelphia hope to call 13 other women to show Cosby had a pattern of drugging and molesting women.
The defense will attack their credibility and relevance to his 2004 encounter with accuser Andrea Constand.
The case started a decade ago when the Temple University employee filed a police complaint. A suburban Philadelphia prosecutor declined to file charges.
But scores of women have since gone public with similar accusations. And damaging testimony Cosby gave in the first accuser's civil lawsuit became public last year. That led authorities to reopen the case.
