Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/20/2016 - 00:42

Comedian Bill Cosby and his wife Camille arrive at the Kennedy Center For the Performing Arts in WashingtonBill Cosby's wife of 52 years is due on Tuesday to sit for a second day of questioning in Boston by lawyers for seven women who have accused the comedian of sexual assault and have sued him for defamation for denying their claims. Camille Cosby's lawyers asked a federal magistrate judge last week to spare her a second day of questioning, saying an earlier deposition was mainly aimed at embarrassing her by delving into her sexual past and matters she is not obligated to testify about due to her marriage with the accused actor. U.S. Magistrate Judge David Hennessy rejected that request but admonished lawyers for both sides to be better behaved when they meet at a Boston hotel, where Camille Cosby, 72, will face five hours and 45 minutes of questioning.
