    Bill Cosby departs a pretrial hearing in his sexual assault case at the Montgomery County Courthouse, Tuesday, March 6, 2018, in Norristown, Pa.

    People attending Bill Cosby's sexual assault retrial won't be allowed in with T-shirts, flowers and other items that show support for one side or the other.

    The trial judge issued the ban Thursday. Cosby's lawyers argued the items could influence jurors.

    Some of Cosby's accusers wore "We Stand in Truth" badges to the first trial. Others carried bouquets of pink gladioli to express solidarity with the many women who say the comedian had drugged and molested them.

    They're now banned.
