For his upcoming retrial on sexual assault charges, Bill Cosby is going with an attorney who has a track record defending celebrities in criminal cases. Reuters reports that one of the three lawyers making up Cosby’s new legal team is Tom Mesereau, who helped Michael Jackson win an acquittal on child molestation charges in 2005.

Cosby is scheduled to be retried starting Nov. 6 on charges of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand in 2004.

“Besides Mesereau, lawyers Kathleen Bliss and Sam Silver will represent Cosby, according to a statement by Andrew Wyatt, Cosby’s publicist,” Reuters notes.
