Cosby himself didn't comment.

Cosby's highly publicized case ended in a mistrial Saturday after jurors failed to reach a verdict following 52 hours of deliberations. She also testified that it's not unusual for assault victims to maintain contact with their attackers, an insight that seemed to directly rebut defense suggestions that more than 50 phone calls Constand, now 44, made to Cosby after the alleged assault were proof that she was lying about the alleged attack.

Cosby, who pleaded not guilty to the charges, did not take the stand during the weeklong trial, though excerpts from his 2005 and 2006 depositions about his relationship with Constand were read aloud.
