In the Cosby trial, scheduled for June 5, the pool of potential jurors is coming from Allegheny County because Cosby's attorneys argued that pretrial publicity would make it hard to find impartial jury candidates in Montgomery County, where Cosby lives.

The 48-question juror survey asks if the potential jurors have an opinion about Cosby's guilt but not if they were fans of his comedy routines, top-ranked TV shows or family values speeches. In the deposition, Cosby confessed to obtaining Quaaludes, a strong sedative, to hand out to females he wanted to have sex with, although he insisted he didn't use them when he is alleged to have assaulted Constand.
Cosby said in a radio interview last week he will not testify in his own defense.
