Camille Cosby, the wife of comedian Bill Cosby, will testify in a defamation suit against her husband on Monday morning.
Lawyers for Bill Cosby have failed to push an emergency motion to postpone Camille’s deposition at the Springfield Mariott in Massachusetts.
The defamation case was brought forth last December by Tamara Green, Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis and Angela Leslie, Deadline reports.
Mr Cammarata, who represents the women against Mr Cosby, said that Camille may have crucial answers to key questions as she served as a former business manager to her husband.
“We expect [she] will be truthful to [her] oath,” he told the outlet, adding that her answers could “open up her to criminal prosecution for perjury.”
Mr Cosby's lawyers maintain that Camille's testimony would serve no purpose other than to "harass and embarrass her," the Associated Press reports.
