Buzzing: Cosby's wife faces questioning

Cosby's wife faces questioning

Bill Cosby's wife of 52 years faced questioning on Monday by lawyers for seven women who accused the comedian of sexual assault and sued him for defamation.

Mrs Camille Cosby, who manages her husband's business, was deposed behind closed doors at a hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts. Her lawyers had earlier unsuccessfully sought to convince a United States District Court judge to stop her testimony.

The plaintiffs' lawyer Joseph Cammarata said: "I expect to ask her about her relationship with Mr Cosby and her relationship to his personal interests, his business interests and matters that are relevant."
