Bill Cosby has arrived at a courthouse in suburban Philadelphia today for his final pretrial hearing as his lawyers are expected to make a last-ditch effort to postpone the comedian's sexual assault retrial.

Lawyers for Cosby are expected to argue for the 80-year-old’s sexual assault trial to be postponed.

Cosby's lawyers are expected to pressure Judge Steven O'Neill to step aside because they say his wife is a social worker who has described herself as an "advocate for assault victims."

They lost a bid to overturn his ruling allowing up to five additional accusers to testify.

O'Neill presided over Cosby's first trial, which ended in a hung jury last year.

The retrial could be delayed indefinitely if he bows out.

Jury selection is scheduled to begin on Tuesday.
