Judge denies request by Cosby's wife to delay deposition

The Associated Press

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) A judge has denied a request by lawyers for Bill Cosby's wife to postpone her deposition in a defamation lawsuit brought by seven women who claim the comedian sexually assaulted them.

The judge ruled late Sunday that the deposition, scheduled for Monday, can proceed.

A different judge ruled Friday that Camille Cosby's deposition must proceed. However, defense lawyers filed an emergency motion late Saturday requesting it be delayed, saying 71-year-old Camille Cosby "has had no involvement with the facts or allegations underlying this case." They said her public testimony would serve "no purpose other than to harass and embarrass her."

Camille Cosby is slated to answer questions under oath in the suit that alleges Bill Cosby sexually assaulted the women decades ago.
