Bill Cosby's wife will answer more questions under oath in a defamation lawsuit filed by seven women who contend the comedian branded them liars after they went public with sexual assault allegations against him.

Camille Cosby's deposition is scheduled to continue Tuesday in Boston. She gave the first part of her deposition in Springfield in February. The Cosby's have a home in Massachusetts.

Camille Cosby had sought to terminate or at least limit her deposition. A magistrate judge ruled earlier this month that she must continue it, but prohibited "improper questions,'' including those involving protected communications between spouses.

The plaintiffs in the defamation lawsuit are among about 50 women who claim Cosby forced unwanted sexual contact on them.

Cosby faces criminal charges in Pennsylvania. He has denied the allegations.
