Comedian Bill Cosby is back in a Pennsylvania courtroom Tuesday.

This time it’s for a pre-trial conference to discuss new counsel for the entertainer.

Cosby’s defense attorney in his sex assault trial that ended with a deadlocked jury indicated he wants off the case before a retrial.  The lead defense lawyer filed documents seeking to withdraw as Cosby’s counsel.  The judge is considering the request Tuesday.

Cosby is being retried on charges he drugged and molested Andrea Constand more than a decade ago.
