PHILADELPHIA - Bill Cosby's lawyers say they'll need to postpone his April 2 suburban Philadelphia sexual assault retrial if some of his other accusers are allowed to testify.
The comedian's lawyers said in a court filing Tuesday they'll seek a delay to allow them more time to investigate allegations from the 19 women prosecutors are seeking to call as witnesses.
Prosecutors say they want to show that a 2004 case that led to Cosby's only criminal charges was part of a five-decade pattern of drugging and harming women.
Judge Steven O'Neill allowed only one other accuser to testify at Cosby's first trial, which ended in a deadlock last June.
The judge is expected to rule next month on whether any of them will be allowed to testify at the second trial.
