The judge hasn’t made a decision on pre-trial motions, but the comedian’s attorneys have begun pointing fingers at Gloria Allred.

The comedian and actor mostly sat impassive during his preliminary hearing on charges that date back a decade.
Cosby is in court for a preliminary hearing on sexual assault charges.
“The situation here,” says a lawyer who’s followed the Cosby case, “is that officials need to recuse themselves when there is an appearance of impropriety.”
An attorney for the Catholic Church in the sex abuse scandal says “how is that a victory? My client dies with a cloud over his head,” but seemingly endless appeals loom.
