*Attorneys for the wife of Bill Cosby have filed a motion asking a federal judge to postpone her scheduled deposition until the appeal of a mandate requiring her testimony is settled.

According to The Boston Globe, Camille Cosby’s lawyers filed the motion Monday in hopes of delaying her deposition scheduled for Wednesday. Bill Cosby is accused of defaming seven women in a lawsuit filed in Springfield.

The motion stated that “without a stay of her deposition, both Mrs. Cosby’s privacy and freedom will be put at issue.”

Magistrate Judge David Hennessy rejected Camille Cosby’s motion to block the subpoena for her deposition on Thursday, which prompted her appeal.
