Federal Marshals Could Be Called On To Force Camille Cosby's Deposition

Camille Cosby's attorneys have filed an emergency motion to delay her deposition

Camille Cosby and her legal team aren't going down without a fight in an effort to delay her upcoming deposition in which she will be forced to testify against her husband Bill Cosby.


Bill's attorneys filed an emergency motion Monday afternoon to delay the deposition that is scheduled for Wednesday (Jan. 6). They are awaiting the outcome of an appeal from a Dec. 31 decision from U.S. District Judge David Hennessy in which he ordered the deposition to move forward.


The hearing is in relation to a defamation lawsuit filed by seven women who claim Bill sexually assaulted them years ago.

Camille had argued that, by law, she shouldn't have to testify against her husband and be subjected to inquiries about his "sexual proclivities." Judge Hennessy said her argument held "no merit" and denied the motion to dismiss the deposition.


Bill's legal team says attorney Joseph Cammarata has refused to delay the hearing and, "among other things, threatened to seek the assistance of federal marshals to compel Mrs. Cosby's deposition on January 6."


The deposition is set for 9 a.m. at the Marriott hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts.
