Bill Cosby Hired Michael Jackson's Old Attorney for His Retrial 

When BILL COSBY is retried for the sexual assault of Andrea Constand, he'll have a brand new attorney representing him:  Thomas Mesereau

He's that lawyer with the long white hair who got MICHAEL JACKSON acquitted of child molestation charges in 2005.  He also helped ROBERT BLAKE beat his murder rap that same year.

When Cosby's first trial ended in a hung jury earlier this summer, and prosecutors announced they were retrying him, Mesereau said, quote, "I think it's a weak case.  It's a waste of time."
