A Los Angeles judge says Governor Schwarzenegger will not have to give a deposition in a lawsuit by a woman who claims his campaign defamed her after she alleged he groped her.
But Superior Court Judge Robert Hess ruled Schwarzenegger will have to answer written questions put to him by attorneys for Hollywood stuntwoman Rhonda Miller.
Hess left open the possibility that Schwarzenegger could be deposed after he answers the written questions and Miller´s attorneys can come up with a valid reason for it.
Miller claims Schwarzenegger and his campaign intentionally defamed her after she alleged last year that the film star lifted her shirt and groped her on film sets.
Schwarzenegger´s attorney says the governor will return his answers to the written questions within ten days.
