at the montgomery county courthouse in norristown. pam, cosby spoke out in court yesterday. tell us what happened in the hearing. >> reporter: yeah, there were more than one moment yesterday in court where cosby shouted out the answers to the questions that were actually meant for prosecutors. keep in mind, lawyers for cosby say the 79-year-old actor is suffering from vision and memory loss that leave him unable to defend himself in his upcoming sexual assault trial. but back to what happened yesterday in the courtroom. it was explosive. this was an all out fight between the prosecution and the defense. the prosecution is hoping the judge will allow testimony from 13 other cosby accusers to be heard in the case involving a 2004 encounter with andrea consta constand. they argue the testimony of these women support constand's story and help establish a pattern that cosby would meet younger women, befriend them, gain their trust, isolate them, drug them, and then sexually assault them. cosby has denied the accusations
and the defense is fighting to keep that testimony out of court. at one point, the d.a., who did not identify the women by name in court paperwork to protect their identities, accused the defense of trying to intimidate the witnesses by first naming them and by planning a photo presentation of the victims. the judge had to jump in and repeatedly stop both sides from shouting, and at one point, the judge even suggested that police could intervene. the stakes are high and the fight will continue in the courtroom today as the judge decides whether or not to allow a jury to hear from these 13 other accusers as well. reporting live outside the montgomery county courthouse, i'm pamela osborne, nbc 10 news. 5:35 and 35 degrees outside. today is the deadline for proposals to revive a philadelphia neighborhood destroyed in a bombing and fire. the philadelphia redevelopment authority wants developers to buy 36 properties on osage avenue in cobbs creek. those properties were destroyed in 1985 after a standoff between
