(SBN) — Officials say Bill Cosby is bringing in Michael Jackson’s former attorney to represent him at his sexual assault retrial in November.  Tom Mesereau will head the re-vamped Cosby defense team, after lawyers from the first trial in June wanted off the case.

Mesereau won acquittal in Jackson’s 2004 child molestation trial, and has also represented boxer Mike Tyson and Death Row Records co-founder Marion “Suge” Knight.

Cosby’s first trial on charges he drugged and molested a woman at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004 ended in a hung jury.
