All but 1 possible Cosby juror knows of #MeToo

Bill Cosby centre arrives for his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse on Monday

The Associated Press reported that Judge Steven O'Neill will allow testimony previously barred in the first trial to be admissible.

Jackson's testimony was crucial to a defence plan to portray Constand as a greedy liar.

Typically, prosecutors and defense attorneys can take what happened at the first trial, learn from it and improve on it in the retrial, but some experts say the climate surrounding sexual assault has changed so thoroughly that both sides should go back to the drawing board.

Also Tuesday, O'Neill ruled that lawyers may not mention at trial the pending lawsuits between Constand and Bruce L. Castor Jr., the former district attorney who declined to file charges against Cosby in 2005.

Philip K. Anthony, CEO of trial consultant firm DecisionQuest, said he has found jurors often don't know as much about newsy topics like the #MeToo movement as lawyers might anticipate.

Meanwhile, jury selection entered the second day as prospective jurors were summoned to the courthouse for the selection process. All told, 12 jurors will be chosen along with six alternates.

He was one of only 10 prospective jurors to indicate they hadn't heard anything about the charges against Cosby. More than 40 women have accused the 80 year old entertainer of sexual assault. Wyatt responded that they hoped for selection of a "fair and impartial jury". Five of the jurors picked so far are white and two are black, with four men and three women.

They joined two middle-aged white women who also were picked Tuesday morning, and a white man in his 20s who was selected Monday.

Bill Cosby leaves from his sexual assault trial at the Montgomery County Courthouse.

Almost everyone else in the initial jury pool of 120 suburban Philadelphia residents indicated they knew about the charges against Cosby - including the two women picked Tuesday.

Two-thirds of the 119 people brought in for group questioning Tuesday afternoon said they've already formed an opinion about Cosby's guilt or innocence.

Another group of 120 potential jurors also was also being brought in, in case they did not make the cut.

What's different in this trial: This jury will hear new witnesses.

O'Neill told the jury pool the trial could last more than a month, adding the panel would be sequestered in a "very nice" hotel.

Reporters are watching the proceedings on a closed-circuit feed from an adjacent courtroom.

Cosby's lawyers objected to having reporters in the courtroom because they feared it could hurt their ability to find a fair and impartial jury.

Acclaimed Emmy-Winning TV Producer Steven Bochco Dies At Age 74
Bochco is survived by sister Joanna Frank; wife, Dayna; children Jesse, Sean and Melissa; and grandchildren Wes and Stevie Rae. A victor of 10 Primetime Emmy Awards , Bochco was nominated for a total of 30 Emmys and won four Peabodys.

Montgomery County President Judge Thomas DelRicci scheduled a Wednesday morning hearing on the news media's legal challenge.

Cosby is charged with drugging and molesting a former Temple University women's basketball official at his home in 2004. He says the sexual encounter with Andrea Constand was consensual.

Picking a jury has proven hard after the #MeToo movement started toppling famous men months after Cosby's first trial ended in a deadlock.

He claims he did not have previous knowledge of Cosby's sexual assault case and has not formed an opinion of Cosby's guilt or innocence, but has heard of the Me Too movement and recent allegations of sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry.

Just one juror was seated as jury selection began on Monday.

The judge last June declared a mistrial after more than 52 hours of jury deliberations over six days.

The former TV star once revered as "America's Dad" for his family sitcom "The Cosby Show" wore a dark suit with a trench coat draped across his legs and a thin wooden cane in his hand as O'Neill questioned potential jurors.
