Bill Cosby’s Wife Complains About ‘Outrageous,’ ‘Improper’ Deposition Questions

Camille Cosby says she’s been annoyed and embarrassed by the way she’s been quizzed

Apparently, Camille Cosby’s wife wasn’t a big fan of her deposition last month.

The wife of scandal-plagued comedian Bill Cosby filed court papers on Friday complaining about some of the questions she was asked during her Feb. 22 deposition relating to a lawsuit against her husband, which she said were “outrageous” and “improper.”

Camille Cosby is seeking to terminate or limit her deposition, which has been continued to next month, because, a court filing claims “the deposition ‘is being conducted in bad faith [and] in a manner that unreasonably annoys, embarrasses or oppresses the deponent.'”

The court papers claim that portions of the February deposition “contain outrageous questions about Mrs. Cosby’s own sexual relations, her own political commentary, and the death of the Cosby’s [sic] son, among other improper questions, which are irrelevant to the issues in this case and plainly were designed to annoy, embarrass, and oppress the witness.”

In this particular lawsuit, the former “Cosby Show” star is being sued by a number of his accusers, who claim that they were defamed by statements to the media denying their accusations.

It’s no surprise that Camille Cosby wasn’t thrilled about the deposition; after unsuccessfully attempting to scuttle it, she refused to answer nearly 100 questions, according to court papers obtained by TheWrap.

Bill Cosby has been accused of rape or sexual assault by dozens of women and has been hit with multiple lawsuits, as well as a criminal charge in Pennsylvania stemming from former Temple University employee Andrea Constand’s allegations that the comedian drugged and molested her in his Pennsylvania home in 2004.

The comedian has denied the allegations and in some cases has filed suit against his accusers.
