The retrial of Bill Cosby on sexual assault charges is underway in Norristown, Pennsylvania. The first time the comedian was tried on these charges ended in a deadlocked jury. This latest trial is taking place in a different environment, after the #MeToo movement began. Defending Cosby this time is National Trial Lawyer member Tom Mesereau, who successfully defended Michael Jackson on child molestation charges in 2005. The Washington Post produced this video on what you need to know about Cosby’s retrial.
The National Trial Lawyers Criminal Defense Executive Committee member Tom Mesereau will be a featured panel speaker following the screening of a new documentary, “When Justice Isn’t Just,” on September 30th in Los Angeles. The film, directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker David Massey and produced by Dawn Massey, will be shown as part of a program that begins at 4:00 pm at Norris Cinema Theatre, Frank Sinatra Hall at 3507 Trousdale Parkway in LA. Mesereau and other panel members will discuss the film and its impact immediately following the film at 5:00 pm.
