Cosby's wife deposed in sexual-assault defamation case

The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Bill Cosby's wife has answered questions under oath for lawyers in a Massachusetts defamation lawsuit brought against him by seven women who say he sexually assaulted them decades ago, and she will answer more questions next month.

The deposition by Camille Cosby on Monday is believed to be the first she has given since dozens of women came forward to accuse her husband of sexual assault. The session took place under heavy security at the Springfield Marriott hotel.

The women allege Cosby defamed them by branding them liars after they went public with their allegations. Cosby denied the allegations and filed a countersuit.

Camille Cosby talked to the women's lawyers for about 2 1/2 hours Monday. She will continue the deposition on March 14.
