Lawyers for Camille Cosby, the wife of embattled comedian Bill Cosby, have filed a motion to postpone her deposition in a defamation lawsuit against her husband while she appeals a magistrate judge's order, CBS News reports.

The motion, filed late Saturday, argues that Cosby's deposition, which is scheduled for Monday, should be delayed because she "has no involvement with the facts or allegations underlying this case." It goes on to claim that her testimony would create "an unnecessary media circus and personal security threat that serves no purpose other than to harass and embarrass her."

Camille Cosby is scheduled to answer questions under oath as part of the proceedings in a lawsuit against her husband filed by seven women he's accused of sexually assaulting. The women claim that Cosby has defamed them by denying their allegations. Cosby has countersued the women for defamation.

A federal judge ruled Friday that Camille Cosby's deposition must go forth Monday. Her lawyers had previously attempted to block her from testifying altogether in December, but the motion was rejected last month.
