Bill Cosby's wife has been granted a month's delay in her second deposition regarding sex assault allegations filed against her husband.
The acting veteran is facing a defamation lawsuit in Massachusetts federal court from seven women, who his lawyers reportedly dismissed as liars after they went public with decades-old accusations of inappropriate behaviour, drugging and/or rape at the hands of Cosby.
Camille Cosby, who previously served as her husband's business manager, was summoned to give evidence under oath last month (Feb16), testifying for the first time about the multiple sex claims which have dogged the comedian for years.
She was due to be quizzed by the plaintiffs' lawyer, Joseph Cammarata, for a second time next week (begs14Mar16), but her lawyers have since been allowed more time to prepare for the case.

Bill Cosby's wife Camille has testified for the first time under oath about multiple sex assault allegations filed against her husband.
The Cosby Show star is facing a defamation suit filed in Massachusetts federal court by seven women who have accused the comedian of calling them liars after alleging he drugged and/or raped or sexually assaulted them in decades-old incidents.
Camille, who served as her husband's business manager, previously argued she should be exempt from testifying against her spouse under Massachusetts' marital disqualification law, but her argument was shot down in December (15), when a judge ruled the disqualification only applied to trial testimony, and not to a deposition.
Her lawyers have been fighting the ruling ever since, but they lost an emergency motion for a delay on Sunday (21Feb16), ahead of her scheduled questioning on Monday (22Feb16), after 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".

Troubled Comedian Bill Cosby Has One Less Legal Headache To Worry About After A Pennsylvania Judge Dismissed A Defamation Lawsuit Filed Against Him Last Year (15).
Renita Hill sued the former The Cosby Show star in October (15), claiming he and his lawyers made her appear as a "liar" after vehemently denying allegations he had drugged her drinks and molested her while she was passed out during their stint on the road together in the 1980s.
She went public with her story in a U.S. TV interview in 2014, joining a string of other reported victims who came forward with similar stories about time they spent with the veteran actor.
Cosby fought back against the defamation suit by insisting it held no merit as Hill was never mentioned by name in the original statements of denial. He and his lawyers also argued that even if Hill was referred to in the press releases, the comments had been simply a matter of opinion and were therefore protected by constitutional law.

A Massachusetts Judge Has Ordered Bill Cosby's Wife Camille To Sit For A Deposition In The Actor's Defamation Case In February (16).
The Cosby Show veteran is fighting legal action from seven women, who have accused the comedian and his legal team of dismissing them as liars after they came forward with decades-old allegations of sexual assault against the 78-year-old.
Camille tried to avoid the deposition by citing the state's marital disqualification law, which prevents anyone from testifying against a spouse, but she lost her bid in December (15) and was due to be deposed last week (06Jan16).
Her lawyers filed an emergency appeal, prompting U.S. Magistrate Judge David Hennessy to delay the questioning pending a review of the challenge.

LATEST: Sienna Miller has slammed reports she's dumped boyfriend Jude Law to start up a romance with her latest leading man, James Franco.
Miller's representative, CIARA PARKES, tells American publication PEOPLE photos that were published of the couple together were actually pictures from a scene they were shooting for the film Camille.
She explains, "The pictures of Sienna were of her doing a scene at Niagara Falls with James.
"There were about a thousand people around them and it was a sad scene, the last scene of the movie. They are just joking about during takes."
Miller and her 28-year-old co-star have been shooting the film in Canada for the past month.
Meanwhile, Law has been filming MY BLUEBERRY NIGHTS in New York City. Miller and Law were spotted together in the Big Apple several weeks ago, but haven't been seen together since.
Photos of Franco and Miller looking cozy on set sparked rumours of an affair
But a friend of Miller's tells the magazine there is no rift between the celebrity couple saying, "Sienna and Jude are still very much an item. Just because they are working in different locations doesn't mean they've split up.
"She and James are friends and even actors are entitled to have friends."
