Camille Cosby was deposed in her husband Bill Cosby's defamation lawsuit on Monday. Cosby answered questions under oath relating to sexual assault allegations brought against her husband by seven of the dozens of women who say he's abused them.

Camille Cosby and her attorneys met with lawyers for the accusers at a Springfield, Mass., hotel for about eight hours Monday. Joseph Cammarata, an attorney for one of the women, told the Associated Press that Cosby answered questions for about two and a half hours, and the rest of the time was attorneys for both sides negotiating what questions Cosby would answer. She is scheduled to continue her deposition March 14.

Cammarata wouldn't disclose what he asked Cosby, but reiterated why she's being deposed to answer questions about her husband of 52 years.

"She's his wife," he said. "She has the ability to live with him, be with him ... understand who he associates with."

Camille Cosby's attorneys tried to block the deposition right up until it happened. They declined to speak to the press on the day of the deposition.
