In court papers obtained by ET, Camille's lawyers claim that "Mrs. Cosby's privacy and freedom will be put at issue" and that a "disqualification rule" prohibits any spouse from testifying as to their private marital conversations, but according to Hot Bench's Tanya Acker, the "disqualification rule" might not apply here.
"She was not just married to him. She was his manager," Acker told ET. "By being his manager she thrust herself right there in the public with him, so that could open up a lot of avenues for questioning that might lead to relevant information."
Bill has denied all sexual assault accusations against him, which led to Tamara Green, Therese Serignese, Linda Traitz, Louisa Moritz, Barbara Bowman, Joan Tarshis and Angela Leslie to file suit claiming that his denial of such allegations are both false and defamatory.
The 78-year-old comedian is counter-suing the women, claiming they are making false accusations for their own financial gain.
Camille was called to testify the same week as the former Cosby Show star was charged with felony aggravated indecent assault for allegedly drugging and sexually assaulting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in January 2004. He was released Dec. 30 after posting $1 million bail.
At the time, Cosby's attorneys gave a statement to ET, saying, "The charge by the Montgomery County District Attorney's office came as no surprise, filed 12 years after the alleged incident and coming on the heels of a hotly contested election for this county's DA during which this case was made the focal point. Make no mistake, we intend to mount a vigorous defense against this unjustified charge and we expect that Mr. Cosby will be exonerated by a court of law."
