Bill Cosby Tries to Obtain Criminal Case Dropped as Wife Forced to Continue Deposition

Camille Cosby will have to endure more questions about her husband’s alleged conduct.

A MA judge today rejected her request to terminate her deposition in a defamation case brought by seven women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual assault.

Meanwhile, the comedian is trying to obtain the criminal case against him -- alleging that he sexually assaulted Andrea Constand in two thousand-fourth -- thrown out. Bill Cosby'south team has filed an appeal arguing that the former district attorney guaranteed in two thousand-fifth he'd not prosecute in exchange for Cosby’s testimony in a related civil case.

A lower Ct ruled against Cosby in Feb and the team is presently appealing to a higher court.

Camille Cosby will return Monday for a second circular of questions. She'd asked to stop the deposition because, her attorneys said, she was subjected to a “litany of improper and offensive questions” during the first session this past Feb that they contended were only meant “to annoy, embarrass and oppress her.”

She was particularly irked by questions about her own sexual relations, her political comment and about the one thousand nine hundred ninety-seven death of the her son, Ennis. The judge agreed to limit the scope of the questions this time around and Cosby’s attorneys said they were “gratified by the court’s decision.”

"While not agreeing to terminate the deposition, the Ct granted Mrs. Cosby'south request to limit the types of questions she could be asked going forward, prohibiting plaintiffs from asking improper questions, questions seeking her opinion, and questions involving marital communications," her attorneys said in a statement.

In February, Camille Cosby testified for two-and-a-half hours at the Springfield Marriott in Massachusetts, according to Joseph Cammarata, a lawyer for the women suing Bill Cosby.

Cammarata said that Camille Cosby’s lawyers invoked spousal privilege not to reply questions more than a dozen times in the earlier deposition.

Bill Cosby'south valid team has repeatedly denied the sexual allegations against him.

His lawyers also said that he'll be "exonerated by a Ct of law" in the criminal case.

"The charge by the Montgomery County District Attorney'south office came as number surprise, filed twelve years after the alleged incident and coming on the heels of a hotly contested election for this county'south DA during which this case was made the focal point," his valid team said in an earlier statement. "Create number mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a Ct of law."
