Story highlights

Bill Cosby's wife was deposed more than two hours Monday, a lawyer says

The deposition wasn't completed and will resume next month, he says

Eight women have sued Bill Cosby for defamation

(CNN) —  

Bill Cosby’s wife, Camille, acted like “she really didn’t want to be there” Monday when she was deposed for more than two hours in a defamation lawsuit against the comedian, a lawyer for the plaintiffs said.

She will be deposed again March 14 at a place to be determined, attorney Joseph Cammarata said Monday evening when the hearing concluded in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Cosby’s lawyers could not be immediately contacted for comment. Bill Cosby was not present for the deposition, Cammarata said.

“It’s fruitful in a sense and frustrating in a sense,” Cammarata said, referring to the fact that the deposition wasn’t completed Monday.

Eight women claim Cosby let his defense team paint them as liars after they accused him of sexual assault.

Tamara Green, who has accused Cosby of sexually assaulting her in 1970, filed the defamation lawsuit against Cosby in December 2014. Other women later joined the suit.

The lawyers spent more than seven hours in the room Monday but were able to depose Camille Cosby for only two and a half hours because of “back and forth” about marital privilege, Cammarata said. Lawyers twice consulted with a magistrate judge, he said.

Over the weekend, Bill Cosby’s attorneys filed a motion to stop the deposition, and the plaintiffs’ lawyers filed arguments against that motion.

Bill Cosby sues accuser Andrea Constand

U.S. District Judge Mark Mastroianni on Sunday night denied the defendant’s motion and ruled Camille Cosby would be deposed.

More than 40 women have come forward to publicly accuse Cosby, 78, of assaulting them over four decades, often saying he supplied them with drugs. Cosby has denied he sexually assaulted any women.

Cosby was charged in late December with the sexual assault of one woman and was released on $1 million bail.
