A judge has ordered Camille Cosby’s scheduled deposition tomorrow in connection with sexual-assault charges against husband Bill Cosby be kept under seal.
Camille — Bill’s wife for 52 years and his business manager — was subpoenaed early last month by lawyers representing seven women who claim her husband “drugged and/or sexually assaulted each” of them.
Magistrate Judge David Hennessy issued his order late yesterday in U.S. District Court in Springfield, Mass., after Cosby attorneys tried to delay Camille’s deposition after earlier failing to have the deposition canceled.
The Massachusetts civil suit was filed in December 2014 by Tamara Green and later joined by six other women, accusing the disgraced comic of sexual assault, abuse and defamation, according to court documents.
Cosby counter-sued the women last month, claiming they defamed him with their accusations.
A separate, criminal suit was filed against Cosby in Pennsylvania last week, claiming he sexually assaulted a woman in 2004.
