Camille Cosby’s Lawyers Seeking To Delay Deposition In Bill Cosby’s Civil Suit

Lawyers for Camille Cosby, the wife of alleged rapist Bill Cosby, have asked a federal judge to delay her deposition, scheduled for Wednesday. According to the Boston Globe, they filed a motion stating,

“without a stay of her deposition, both Mrs. Cosby’s privacy and freedom will be put at issue in a case to which she is not a party, and for which she is not alleged to have any personal, first-hand knowledge.”

Camille was ordered to testify in a deposition in a defamation suit against her husband in Springfield, MA. After her husband was charged in Pennsylvania last week of sexually assaulting a woman in 2004, Camille’s lawyers immediately filed a motion to block the subpoena. This was blocked by Magistrate Judge David H. Hennessy, who also stated that ” a rule barring spouses from testifying about private marital conversations applies to trial testimony but not testimony during pretrial depositions, court records show.”

So, Camille will probably have to testify against her husband, at least in the deposition phase. Trial dates for the lawsuits have not been set.
