Bill Cosby's deposition in regard to Janice Dickinson's defamation case is scheduled to take place on Nov. 23 in Boston, Dickinson's attorney, Lisa Bloom, exclusively told ET on Wednesday.
"Mr. Cosby has a law firm with 700 lawyers that he's using to try to fight his deposition," Bloom said. "He clearly does not want me to ask him questions under oath. ... We will continue to fight at every level."
Cosby's former attorney, Martin Singer, is also scheduled to give a deposition on Nov. 19 at Bloom's office in Los Angeles, she revealed.
In May, the 60-year-old supermodel filed a suit against 78-year-old Cosby for defamation, false light and intentional infliction of emotional distress, after she accused the comedian of drugging and raping her in 1982. When Dickinson went public with her allegations in November 2014, Cosby's lawyer refuted those claims in a statement that said, "Janice Dickinson's story accusing Bill Cosby of rape is a lie," which led Dickinson to take legal action.
"I'm suing Bill Cosby for justice and vindication," Dickinson told ET. "I was drugged and raped -- drugged and raped -- by Bill Cosby. And the fact that he and his spokespeople have called me a liar -- referring to remarks that I've made -- it’s just not correct. I want to fight this. I’m not being paid anything monetarily to do this, it's just the right thing to do."
