BOSTON -- Lawyers for Bill Cosby say they'll fight an attempt to require the comedian's wife to give a sworn deposition in a defamation lawsuit filed by seven women who accuse Cosby of sexually assaulting them decades ago.
A lawyer for the women has subpoenaed Camille Cosby to be deposed on Jan. 6. at a Springfield, Massachusetts, hotel.
But Cosby's lawyers filed a motion Friday to quash the subpoena, saying she has no firsthand, non-repetitive knowledge of issues in the lawsuit. They argue that any confidential communications between Cosby and his wife are protected by the Massachusetts spousal disqualification rule.
The women's lawyer argued that he should be able to question Camille Cosby because she was her husband's business manager.
Cosby's lawyers say she doesn't have any information about the accuracy of the women's allegations.
