Pretrial motions continue in Bill Cosby retrial

Jury selection begins Monday

NORRISTOWN, Pa. - Bill Cosby's lawyers are honing their plan to portray the accuser at his sexual assault retrial as a greedy liar who framed the comedian to get rich.

Judge Steven O'Neill could rule as early as Friday on whether the defense can call a witness who claims Andrea Constand spoke about falsely accusing a celebrity.

O'Neill also will decide how much jurors will hear about Cosby's financial settlement with Constand.

The judge on Thursday rejected assertions made by Cosby's lawyers that he could be seen as biased because his wife is a social worker who advocates for assault victims.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Monday. The trial is scheduled to begin April 9th at the earliest.
