Judge Orders Bill Cosby's Wife to Continue Deposition
Cosby had sought to terminate the proceedings, or at least limit it.
WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) — Bill Cosby's wife has been ordered to continue her deposition in a civil defamation lawsuit in Massachusetts filed by seven women who allege the comedian sexually assaulted them decades ago.
A federal judge in Worcester ruled Tuesday that Camille Cosby must sit for another day of questioning from the women's lawyers. Cosby had sought to terminate the proceedings, or at least limit it.
She sat for the first part of the deposition in February; the second session is now scheduled for April 19.
Joe Cammarata, a lawyer for the women, called it a "good day" in court.
Bill Cosby's camp also claimed victory. Spokesman Andrew Wyatt said the judge granted Camille Cosby's request to limit the types of questions asked going forward, prohibiting plaintiffs from asking "improper questions."
