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:

Bill Cosby's Lawyers File Emergency Motion To Delay Camille Cosby's Deposition

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsLegal MattersLove LineSexBill CosbyControversy

Bill's lawyers are trying to put a stop to Camille's deposition!

The pressure is on for Bill Cosby's lawyers.

On Monday, the scandalized star's attorneys filed an emergency motion to delay his wife's deposition for one of his defamation lawsuits.

According to court docs, the 78-year-old's legal representation is asking to hold off on Camille Cosby's questioning until they know the outcome of the appeal they filed.

As we previously reported, Judge David Hennessy denied her attempt to get out of testifying under oath regarding allegations that her husband drugged and sexually assaulted seven women.

But now, the comedian's lawyers are appealing that decision, and would like to prevent his lady love's deposition from happening before they find out if their motion is successful.

It'll be interesting to see if the justice system postpones Camille's testimony — which is scheduled for Wednesday — pending the appeal results.

We're also curious to see if a judge will rule in favor of the appeal, considering the accusers' lawyer says there's no "basis for appeal!"

Accusers' Lawyer Says Bill Cosby's Wife Has No Legal Reason To Avoid A Deposition

Filed under: Icky Icky PooDrugsLegal MattersLove LineSexBill CosbyControversy

Bill's lawyers say they plan to appeal her defamation.

Bill Cosby's wife, Camille, has been trying to fight her upcoming deposition in her husband's lawsuit, even though US District Judge David Hennessy already denied the attempt to get out of it.

And now Joseph Cammarata, who is representing seven women who are suing the comedian for defamation, told People that he completely agrees with the judge's decision, saying there's no legal reason the 71-year-old should be able to avoid being deposed:

"I don't think there's any basis for appeal. Absent a court order directly that she need not appear, we expect that she will honor the subpoena and give testimony."

Camille is supposed to be questioned about claims that the scandalized star drugged and sexually assaulted these accusers.

However, the actor's spokesperson, Monique Pressley, has said that his lawyers plan on appealing Judge David's ruling, but no papers have been filed yet.

So, if they still plan to appeal, they better act fast, because the deposition is scheduled for Wednesday, at the Marriott hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts.
