The judge also refused to postpone or limit the scope of Camille’s testimony, according to the 12-page opinion.
“I find no merit in Mrs. Cosby’s arguments and accordingly deny her motion in its entirety,” U.S. Magistrate Judge David H. Hennessy said in the ruling.
The decision came a day after Bill Cosby was charged with felony aggravated indecent assault in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania and Camille filed new paperwork arguing she had a spouse’s right to privacy and shouldn’t be forced to answer questions about her husband’s sexual “proclivities.”
“Mrs. Cosby’s dual role as defendant’s wife and business manager render it at least plausible that Mrs. Cosby is in possession of information that ‘is relevant,'” Judge Hennessy said.
