Bill Cosby will be back in court on Monday and this week the jury was selected. The 12 jurors are made up of 10 White people and 2 Black people. Cosby’s lawyer claims that there was racial discrimination when they tried to choose a Black woman for the jury.
6 alternates will be chosen by the end of the day. Villanova won the NCAA Men’s Championship and a parade in Philly will happen today. So far it’s a good time for Philly sports.
