A judge has decided Camille Cosby must testify in the defamation lawsuit filed by several women against her husband.

U.S. Judge Magistrate David Hennessey denied a motion Camille filed to throw out a subpoena requiring her to testify.

The lawsuit claims that Bill Cosby allowed his representatives to portray a group of women as liars after they went public with their allegations against the comedian. He has filed a countersuit against him.

Camille argued that she and Bill Cosby were protected by the state’s marital disqualification law and that her deposition would cause “undue burden,” but Hennessey said that the arguments “do not outweigh the potential significance of Mrs. Cosby’s testimony, nor has Mrs. Cosby provided any authority that they do.” (PHOTOS: This Is Bill Cosby’s Mug Shot)
