Bill Cosby is scheduled to appear in a Pennsylvania court on Monday for a hearing about whether to allow testimony at his retrial on sexual misconduct charges from 19 other women who have made similar accusations against him. Cosby’s first criminal trial ended in a mistrial when jurors failed to reach a verdict. He is charged with drugging and assaulting Andrea Constand, a former administrator with the women’s basketball team at Temple University.

The pre-trial motion scheduled for today could have the greatest effect on his retrial which is set to begin April 2 in Norristown, Pennsylvania. It is a request by prosecutors to call 19 other accusers to the witness stand. If the motion is granted, prosecutors want to establish a pattern of behavior to add credibility to Constand’s accusations.

Cosby’s lawyers will argue that the judge should scrap the charges that he assaulted Constand, contending the prosecution cannot prove that Cosby was in Philadelphia and met with Constand between Dec. 30, 2003, and Jan. 20, 2004, when prosecutors say the alleged assault occurred.
