Camille was scheduled to sit for a round of questioning in Springfield, Massachusetts, on Monday (22Feb16) as part of a defamation lawsuit brought against her husband by seven women, who are among more than 50 to have made sexual abuse allegations against The Cosby Show comedian.

The seven took civil action after Cosby's lawyer called their abuse claims lies. Camille's deposition in the case was announced in December (15) but her lawyers have made several attempts to have it stalled or dropped.

In their last bid, the lawyers filed an emergency motion asking for it to be delayed on Saturday (20Feb16), insisting she "had no involvement with the facts or allegations underlying this case" and that the deposition was "an unnecessary media circus and personal security threat that serves no purpose other than to harass and embarrass her".

However, a judge denied the motion late on Sunday (21Feb16) and ruled the deposition should proceed.
