Bill Cosby Hires MJ Lawyer Tom Mesereau In Sexual Assault Retrial

The often acerbic McMonagle formally filed paperwork early this month to leave the revolving door defense team after having been with Cosby since charges were first laid in late 2015.

He defended Mike Tyson, Robert Blake and famously won the acquittal of Michael Jackson in his child molestation case.

He recently took a turn battling murder and attempted murder charges for rap mogul Suge Knight and represented Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers after she snapped a photo of a naked woman in a gym locker room and shared the pic on Snapchat.

Cosby will be retried on three charges of assault starting November 6.

Besides Mesereau, lawyers Kathleen Bliss and Sam Silver will represent Cosby, according to a statement by Andrew Wyatt, Cosby's publicist, on Monday. Silver has been a part of Cosby's legal team since previous year, and his primary focus has been civil cases involving the allegations of the more than 50 women who have accused Cosby of drugging and assaulting them.

Muguruza outlasts Kuznetsova to reach Cincinnati semifinal
While she can't do it this week, Muguruza would be in the hunt for the top ranking at the US Open, which starts on August 28. Kyrgios and Ferrer displayed remarkably efficient serving in their nightcap.

The three will replace Brian McMonagle, a top defense attorney from Philadelphia, and Los Angeles defense lawyer Angela Agrusa, who had been in the case since Cosby's arrest on December 30, 2015.

Bliss is a former federal prosecutor who now manages a boutique law firm in Las Vegas.

Judge Steven O'Neill declared a mistrial in June when a jury failed to reach a unanimous verdict on three counts of aggravated indecent assault after more than 50 hours of deliberations in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

According to Page Six, both McMonagle and Agrusa are expected to be officially released from the case on Tuesday. The pair helped Cosby secure a hung jury on trial for sexual assault in June.

Cosby has admitted having sexual contact with Constand but claimed the contact was consensual.
