Camille Cosby Loses Last Ditch Attempt To Postpone Court Appearance & Is Still Set To Be Deposed

Filed under: Legal MattersBill CosbyControversy

Bill's wife is going to court.

The day has finally come for Camille Cosby.

On Monday, Bill Cosby's wife is set to be deposed in court after a last ditch attempt on Saturday night to delay it once again.

U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianni denied her emergency motion, as her lawyers stated that her court appearance "serves no purpose other than to harass and embarrass her."

Also according to her motion, she "has had no involvement with the facts or allegations underlying this case" and that her testimony would create "an unnecessary media circus and personal security threat."

In case you didn't know, seven women claim they were drugged and sexually assaulted by the actor, in which he called them liars.

Camille will be testifying in court in relation to their allegations, though as we previously reported, the 71-year-old can refuse to answer certain questions.

We will continue to update you with any more information.

Donald Trump Accused Of Trying To Financially Ruin A Female Student Out Of Revenge — Get The Deets On The Secret Deposition!

no title

Will this drama be enough to sink Donald Trump?!

Before The Donald was an awful presidential candidate, he failed at a lot of stuff — like, a LOT of stuff — including miserably ruining his own private "university" that he started several years ago before it was quickly shuttered for a litany of problems.

Now, something from his Trump University days is coming back to bite Trump in the behind, and it appears he may have gone too far against one woman who sued the "college" years ago because of its many problems.

Camille Cosby To Be Deposed In Bill Cosby’s Defamation Case — But With Limitations

Filed under: Legal MattersBill Cosby

Bill's wife will be deposed.

As we previously reported, Camille Cosby had been scheduled to be deposed on January 6 in the defamation case against her husband, Bill Cosby.

The 71-year-old was granted a delay, but despite the appeal from the actor, a judge ordered on Thursday that she will be deposed, but can refuse to answer some specific questions.

In case you didn't know, seven women claim they were drugged and sexually assaulted by the actor, in which he called them liars.

U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianni wrote of his decision:

"This is a difficult issue as there is very little authority directly on the subject. The court concludes that the marital disqualification rule does apply to deposition testimony. Deponent, when appropriate, may refuse to answer deposition questions which call for testimony prohibited by the rule and not falling within an exception. The court will not quash the deposition subpoena and will not issue a formal protective order."

The deposition is still scheduled for February 22.

Cosby's team has since responded to the news, with spokesman Andrew Wyatt saying:

A Judge Rules Janice Dickinson Can't Depose Bill Cosby — For Now!

A judge wants to give Bill the chance to argue that it should be thrown out.

The wins just keep coming for Bill Cosby.

On Wednesday, a judge ruled that Janice Dickinson can't depose the 78-year-old in her defamation case… at least, not yet!

For those of you who might not remember, the model filed a lawsuit against the scandalized star last year, after the comedian accused the 60-year-old of fabricating her claims that he drugged and sexually assaulted her.

Back in November, a judge decided that the actor had to give a deposition in the case. But now, the new ruling is delaying the questioning.

The court said that the New York native doesn't have the right to interview her alleged attacker under oath until AFTER he has the chance to argue why it should be thrown out.

Hmmmm.

Is it just us, or does this sound pretty familiar to the recent ruling that delayed his wife's testimony in another defamation case?

What do U think of this decision, Perezcious readers?

Bill Cosby Gets A Small Victory! A Judge Has Agreed To Delay His Wife's Deposition!

Filed under: Legal MattersBill CosbyControversy

The judge says it's her legal right to appeal.

Bill Cosby is probably breathing a sigh of relief… for now, anyway.

On Tuesday, Judge David Hennessy granted the emergency motion to delay Camille Cosby's deposition in her husband's defamation case.

The 71-year-old's questioning was initially scheduled for Wednesday, but the U.S. Magistrate has ruled that it will be put off until after attorneys have had a chance to appeal his previous decision that ordered her to partake in the under-oath interview.

He wrote:

"It would not serve (and in fact would offend) the 'interest of justice' for this court to deny the motion for a stay, and thereby effectively deny Mrs. Cosby any right to appeal. In fairness then Mrs. Cosby's deposition shall be stayed [postponed] pending her appeal."

The deposition of the scandalized star's wife was requested in a civil case in which seven women claim that the actor drugged and sexually assaulted them.

The accusers' lawyer, Joseph Cammarata, is not concerned that he'll lose the appeal, telling People:
