Lawyer for seven women argues Camille Cosby should be questioned as her husband's business manager
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.

They argue that any confidential communications between Cosby and his wife are protected by the Massachusetts spousal disqualification rule.
