According to Sky News, Bill attended a hearing near Philadelphia today and waved to people as he arrived, while Andrea did not attend as she now lives in Canada.

Approximately 40 other women have come forward with similar accusations against the star but Andrea's case is the only one to make it to trial at this point.
