When it comes to witnessing the natural grandeur that is a total solar eclipse , there are a number of things to keep in mind. First Daughter and presidential advisor Ivanka Trump was also preparing to watch the eclipse on Monday.

Cosby is being tried on three counts of aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually attacking former Temple University staffer Andrea Constand. But Mesereau quit the case, declining to explain why.

On his bio page, Mesereau notes how he was lead trial counsel for a prominent plastic surgeon in Los Angeles. Blake was eventually acquitted in March 2005.

O'Neill to discuss any pretrial issues that will have to be addressed before the scheduled November 6 trial. The final split was 10-2 in favor of convicting the entertainer, according to juror accounts.
