Deposition of Bill Cosby’s wife postponed

News

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — A lawyer for seven women suing Bill Cosby for defamation says Cosby’s wife will answer questions under oath for a second day next month.

Camille Cosby answered questions on Feb. 22 and had been scheduled to undergo a second day of questioning next week.  Attorney Joseph Cammarata said Mrs. Cosby’s new attorneys requested more time. Both sides agreed to continue her deposition on April 18.

Cammarata said he hopes to depose Bill Cosby soon after Camille Cosby finishes her deposition, although no date has been set.  Bill Cosby’s lawyers asked a judge to suspend the defamation case while a criminal sexual assault case is pending against Cosby in Pennsylvania.

The women suing Cosby claim his representatives branded them as liars when they publicly alleged he sexually assaulted them decades ago.
