BOSTON >> Bill Cosby's wife is fighting attempts to get her to answer more questions in a Massachusetts defamation lawsuit filed by seven women who say the comedian sexually assaulted them decades ago.

Camille Cosby's lawyers say in court papers that the women's lawyer asked "improper and offensive questions" during the first day of her deposition last month. Some questions related to Camille Cosby's "own sexual relations" and the death of the Cosbys' son in 1997. Her lawyers are asking to terminate or at least limit her deposition.

But the women's lawyer has asked a judge to step in to make sure Camille Cosby's deposition continues.

The lawyer says Camille Cosby refused to answer dozens of questions. The lawyer wants a judge present April 18 for the next session of her deposition.
