SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Bill Cosby’s wife of nearly 52 years will answer questions under oath next month in her first deposition since dozens of women came forward over the last year with sexual abuse allegations against Cosby.

A lawyer for seven women suing Cosby for defamation said Thursday that Camille Cosby’s deposition is scheduled Jan. 6 in Springfield. Attorney Joseph Cammarata said Bill Cosby’s deposition is scheduled Feb. 22, also in Springfield, where the defamation suit was filed.

The women allege Cosby’s representatives defamed them after they came forward with their allegations.

Cammarata announced the deposition dates during a hearing in federal court in a separate lawsuit filed against Cosby by his insurer, AIG Property Casualty Co.

AIG is balking at paying the costs of defending Cosby in the defamation suit.
