Bill Cosby’s Wife Files Motion to Delay Deposition in Sex Assault Case

Lawyers for Bill Cosby’s wife, Camille, filed an emergency motion late on Saturday to allow her to avoid sitting for a deposition scheduled for Monday.

Camille Cosby’s deposition should be delayed because she “has had no involvement with the facts or allegations underlying this case,” say her lawyers in the motion. It goes on to assert that her testimony would create “an unnecessary media circus and personal security threat that serves no purpose other than to harass and embarrass her.”

The motion also asks that, if the deposition does proceed, it at least be held at a more private place than the Springfield Marriott in Massachusetts. Camille Cosby’s lawyers argued that she “will be subjected to a parade through a sea of reporters” and open to “eavesdropping and gawkers.”

A federal judge ruled on Friday that Camille Cosby must answer questions in a defamation lawsuit brought against Bill Cosby by seven women. The women claim Bill Cosby sexually assaulted them decades ago; the comedian and his lawyers have publicly denied the allegations. Bill Cosby has counter-sued the seven accusers for defamation.

Camille Cosby has stood by her husband since the allegations resurfaced, saying in a statement this past February, “The man I met, and fell in love with, and whom I continue to love, is the man you all knew through his work.”
