Cosby's defence team had sought the right to reveal the settlement, attempting to portray Constand as someone seeking a big payout.

The anticipated opening of Cosby's retrial in a Pennsylvania courthouse was delayed for several hours on Monday due to a potential issue with a juror.

The retrial of the American actor and comedian, Bill Cosby, is due to begin in Pennsylvania on Monday.

She added, "Protesting Bill Cosby was important for us because he is a man who has been disempowering Women's bodies for decades and in being naked today, I was symbolically taking back the ownership of all the victims' bodies and redefining it as a political tool as opposed to a sexual object". She appeared in four episodes of The Cosby Show between 1990 and 1992 under the named Nicole Leach. Although he mentioned Constand would be called to testify, he indicated how important the "he said" would be to their side, too, highlighting several quotes Cosby made in the deposition and police statements and to Constand's mother about offering to pay for Constand's education; why Cosby anxious about being recorded; and discussions about the types of pills and alcohol he offered Constand.

"She's unconscious. She's out of it", Steele said. "I have three friends for you to make you relax'".

There is much riding on the outcome of the case for Cosby.

Mr Cosby, now 80, denies drugging and sexually assaulting former basketball player Andrea Constand 14 years ago.

The first trial, in June 2017, ended when the jury failed to reach a verdict.

"The evidence in this case will show that Andrea Constand didn't come to us". Al Franken, Matt Lauer and other powerful men.

Before the court hearing in Pennsylvania in the case of actor bill Cosby, protester, dressed only in the trousers, rushed in front of Cosby with the words "women's Lives matter". Other female witnesses would be called, he said, giving testimony that they were drugged and molested in very similar ways.

The prosecutor also pointed to testimony that Cosby himself gave under oath in 2006 in a deposition to lawyers in the civil suit with Constand. What happened instead, Steele alleges, is that Constand was incapacitated and raped. They say the protester was there to call attention to sexual violence and the need to hold perpetrators responsible. O'Neill has ruled that Cosby's financial payment to Constand can be brought into the public for the first time at the retrial after Cosby lifted his objections - although experts say the disclosure of the payment could also hurt Cosby if jurors interpret the money as an admission that he did something wrong.

Cosby has said the encounters were consensual.

Cosby's defense lawyer, Tom Mesereau, is set to deliver his opening remarks to the jury on Tuesday morning. Mr Meserau is best known for winning an acquittal in Michael Jackson's 2005 child molestation trial and has represented boxer Mike Tyson.
