In addition, defense lawyers plan to ask Court of Common Pleas Judge Steven O'Neill to keep jurors from hearing about the settlement he signed with Constand in her civil case, arguing that it could be seen as evidence of criminal guilt.
The judge also declined to set a starting date for jury selection, saying only that he meant to begin in late May, depending on when Allegheny County can accommodate the process.
Cosby is accused of drugging and molesting Constand at his Pennsylvania home. The jurors in the 79-year-old's case will come from the Pittsburgh area and will be sequestered roughly 300 miles away in Norristown.
The suburban Philadelphia judge won't let the jury hear from a woman who says Cosby gave her quaaludes in the 1970s. She says Cosby told her it was herbal medication.
Kinky comic Bill Cosby's buffet of libido-boosting drugs is a key sticking point in the disgraced funnyman's sex assault trial. Prosecutors are hoping to use Cosby's own words to show he knew how to incapacitate Constand - and meant to do so.
Lawyers for comedian Bill Cosby and Pennsylvania prosecutors clashed on Monday at a court hearing over what evidence a judge should allow jurors to hear at his sexual assault trial in June.
The defense wants the jury pool prescreened through a written questionnaire on their background, media habits and feelings about Cosby.
Cosby also mentioned obtaining Quaaludes from a doctor with the intent of giving them to women before sex in a 2005 civil deposition. The latest showdown over evidence in his sexual-assault caseis scheduled to start at 9:30am.
The TV star was in court Monday as prosecutors and defense lawyers attempted to iron out last-minute details, including whether the jury will hear the comedian's 25-year-old comments about the aphrodisiac known as "Spanish fly".
Agrusa argued that to get a fair and impartial jury, a 16-question standard form is "not sufficient" for this case.
Yet Assistant District Attorney Stewart Ryan noted that county police had found a large stash of quaaludes even in a 2003 case, 20 years after they were banned from the market.
Prosecutors also contend that in a1991 interview on "The Larry King Show", Cosby extolled Spanish fly as a drug that "all boys from age 11 on up to death" will be searching for. He calls the encounter consensual.
The reference to Spanish fly comes from Cosby's 1991 book "Childhood" and in a CNN appearance promoting the memoir.
