Prosecutors had been seeking to call 13 other women who have previously accused the comedian of indecent behaviour to testify as part of his felony indecent assault case, in which Cosby stands accused of drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand at his Pennsylvania home in 2004.

The actor has pleaded not guilty to the criminal charges, and the case is set to go to trial in June (17).

During a pre-trial hearing on Friday (24Feb17), Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill declared just one other alleged victim will be allowed to take the stand to help authorities prove claims the 79-year-old has a history of bad behaviour.

The witness he allowed maintains she was molested by Cosby in Los Angeles in 1996.

More than 50 women have come forward in recent years with historical sex assault allegations against the veteran funnyman.

His representatives have repeatedly denied the accusations.
