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:

Judy filed a suit with LA Superior Court, claiming that the comedian sexually assaulted her when she was only 15 years old.

The comedian's legal team wanted Judy to go first, but her attornery, Gloria Allred, demanded Bill should be the first one deposed.

In her lawsuit, Kesha accuses Dr. Luke of alleged rape, and physical and emotional assault.

Dr. Luke has since responded with his own lawsuit, which claims that Kesha's allegation are false and only serve as a ploy to extricate herself from their management contract.

In the deposition from a 2011 lawsuit when the two were both being sued by her former manager, Kesha admitted that Dr. Luke never gave her a roofie, and that she never had an intimate relationship with him.
