Camille Cosby, the wife of comedian Bill Cosby, will be questioned under oath this week in connection with a defamation lawsuit against her husband.
The Washington Post reports that the suit was brought by seven women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexually abusing them years ago.
“Camille Cosby will be deposed Wednesday to answer questions about her husband’s treatment of women following a failed attempt to quash the subpoena or, alternatively, to secure a protective order to limit the scope,” The Post reports. “A Massachusetts court ruled late last week that her attorney’s claim that the couple’s private conversations were privileged had ‘no merit’ and instructed her to testify in the coming days.”
Joseph Cammarata, an attorney representing the plaintiffs, said of Camille Cosby: “She has important information as his business manager and, of course, as his wife of 52 years. We hope to learn information that is relevant to the claims which are an issue in this case, including Mr. Cosby’s relationship with other women.”
Attorneys for Camille Cosby were reportedly appealing the decision.
