Cosby’s Wife To Answer More Questions In Defamation Lawsuit

Bill Cosby’s wife is scheduled to be questioned under oath for a second day in a defamation lawsuit filed by seven women who claim the comedian branded them as liars after they went public with sexual assault allegations against him.

Camille Cosby’s deposition is scheduled to continue Tuesday at an undisclosed location in Boston.

She gave the first part of her deposition in February.

Camille Cosby had sought to terminate the deposition, or at least limit it. A magistrate judge ruled April 12 that she must continue her deposition, but prohibited “improper questions,” including those involving protected communications between husband and wife.

The plaintiffs are among about 50 women who claim Cosby forced unwanted sexual contact on them.
