The judge in the Bill Cosby case says he will wait until a jury is sworn in – before final rulings on what evidence can be used – when the comedian goes on trial Monday near Philadelphia.

Defence lawyers butted heads with prosecutors today before Cosby goes on trial – on charges that he drugged and molested a woman in 2004.

Montgomery County Judge Steven O’Neill says he will allow expert testimony on victims’ behaviour – as long as he finds the psychologist’s testimony valid and relevant.

The judge also says he wants to keep some arguments private – until the jury is sworn in.

The defence wants to dis-allow the drug expert from testifying about quaaludes – because they say Cosby last possessed the sedative years before he met his accuser.

Prosecutors say they the drugs were available on the black market – in the early 2000s.
