>> Mr. Mesereau, how do you feel about your client's case?>> Comedian Bill Cosby back in court Tuesday getting a judge's permission to overhaul his legal defense team for his sexual assault retrial now postponed to March 2018. Cosby's first trail on criminal charges he sexually assaulted Andrea Constand, a former staffer at his alma mater Temple University, ended in a mistrial last June.
Cosby's new lawyers include Tom Mesereau, best known for helping pop superstar, Michael Jackson, win an acquittal on charges he'd molested children. The new team replacing attorneys Brian McMonagle and Angela Agrusa who withdrew from Cosby's case. The pair have not said why they quit. But at the end of the trial, they appeared at odds with Cosby's publicist, Andrew Wyatt.
Who delivered impromptu news conferences outside of the court house without the lawyers knowledge. The 80-year-old Cosby built his career on a family-friendly style of comedy. That image crashing after several dozen women accused him of drugging and sexually assaulting them, in a series of attacks dating back to the 1960s.
Cosby has denied all wrong doing and said that any sexual contact with any of his accusers was consensual.
