SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Camille Cosby is scheduled to give a deposition at the Springfield Marriott Monday morning in the defamation case filed against her husband, Bill Cosby.
Camille is expected to answer questions asked by a lawyer representing the women who brought a lawsuit against Bill Cosby. The women claim he sexually assaulted them decades ago.
Sunday night, a federal judge rejected an emergency motion to stop the deposition and ordered Camille Cosby to show up in Springfield Monday. Lawyers for the Cosbys have argued that she does not have any information on the accuracy of the women’s claims and that her conversations with her husband are confidential under the Massachusetts marital disqualification rule.
Defense lawyers, when requesting the delay, said Camille’s public testimony would serve, “no purpose other than to harass and embarrass her.”
This is believed to be the first deposition Camille has given since dozens of women have gone public with their allegations of sexual misconduct against her husband. The plaintiffs in the Massachusetts defamation case are among the close to 50 women who have accused Cosby of sexual misconduct.
