On Thursday afternoon, a Massachusetts judge ruled that Bill’s wife Camille must give a deposition in the defamation suit the comedian is facing from seven of his alleged sexual assault victims.
Camille had been adamant about not testifying in any way with these proceedings, but it looks like that’s all over after a judge dismissed her motion requesting she not have to testify on New Year’s Eve.
The Honorable David H. Hennessy, United States Magistrate Judge, confirmed his ruling on Thursday:
“Mrs. Cosby now seeks an order quashing the subpoena, or in the alternative, a protective order limiting its scope. She argues that Massachusetts marital disqualification law renders her incompetent to testify in this matter and that even if she could provide admissible testimony, the value of any such information is outweighed by the undue burden that her deposition would effect. As discussed below, I find no merit in Mrs Cosby’s arguments, and accordingly deny her motion in its entirety.”
Now, it appears Camille will be deposed on January 6.
Guess we’ll see what happens in about four days!
