Bill Cosby arrives for his sexual assault retrial on April 18, 2018, at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa.

Judge Steven O'Neill permitted Jackson to testify this afternoon though he barred her from taking the stand at Cosby's first trial past year, which ended in a hung jury.

Jackson said the statements are the same, but a person on Cosby's first legal team may not have written down all the information.

Temple University staffer Marguerite Jackson testified she'd been sharing a hotel room with Cosby accuser Andrea Constand in February 2004 when a news item on television sparked an unsettling conversation between the two.

"The academic advisor, Margo Jackson, do you know whether she would room with other people?"

Constand said she did not report the claim "because I couldn't prove it", according to Jackson. Under questioning by M. Stewart Ryan, the assistant district attorney, Ms. Regan said she believed Ms. Dickinson's claim that she had been raped, saying she found her "credible" and had given her account "with great emotion". She said she told the unnamed comic Constand's allegations were false, and he said he'd put her in touch with the defense team, Jackson testified Wednesday.

"I said this is a civil case and money is a great motivator", the school counselor recalled replying.

During her short, highly anticipated appearance, Regan opened a window onto the back stages of the celebrity book-publishing business. Police investigated the allegation but did not charge the actor, and Cosby and Constand eventually reached a civil settlement for millions of dollars. The comic settled Constand's lawsuit for almost $3.4 million.

Q: Why didn't you ever take the quaaludes?

Regan is expected to be the last high-profile witness for prosecutors, who also introduced deposition testimony Wednesday in which Cosby, now 80, admits acquiring the sedative Quaaludes to give to women with whom he wanted to have sex in the 1970s.

If convicted, Cosby could get up to 10 years in prison on each of three charges of aggravated indecent assault against Constand. He says he gave her cold pills and that their sexual encounter was consensual.

Ryan highlighted differences between the January 22 affidavit and one that Jackson wrote on her own a year ago, getting Jackson to concede that Cosby lawyer Kathleen Bliss had her add quotes and make other changes to the second document.

While not much is known at the new movie, it is expected to be inspired by those comics as well as the sequel series, " Infinity War ".

Cosby, who was deposed in 2005 and 2006 as part of his chief accuser's civil suit, was asked about quaaludes, a 1970s party drug that's been banned in the USA since 1982.

The publisher of Janice Dickinson's 2002 memoir testified Wednesday that she convinced the supermodel not to include her alleged rape by Bill Cosby because of fears they would be sued. Gray-Young testified that all calls to the office would have gone through her first, and she never forwarded any calls from Cosby to Constand.

"Did Kathleen [Bliss] tell you that one of the attorneys in this case, Mr. Mesereau, would tell this jury that this case is all about 'Money, money, money?'" Ryan asked, pacing as he echoed Tom Mesereau's opening statements.

In the testimony, Cosby admitted to giving women quaaludes before sex, an admission that several women accused him of.

In the end, Dickinson wrote in her book that Cosby gave her the "dirtiest, meanest look in the world" and slammed the door in her face when she spurned his advances during their meeting in Lake Tahoe. She told jurors that Dickinson was upset the company's legal department wouldn't let them print such an explosive story without a corroborating witness.

Cosby said Constand never told him to stop. Wyatt says Cosby's defense thinks the case should be dismissed.
