Cosby lawyers: Release of deposition broke settlement terms
PHILADELPHIA - Bill Cosby's lawyers have asked a judge to hold an accuser's attorney responsible for the release of the comedian's deposition in a 2005 Pennsylvania case.
They fault Andrea Constand's lawyers for the weekend release of the transcript to news outlets including The New York Times and The Associated Press.
On Thursday, they asked a judge to enforce terms of the confidential agreement that settled the former Temple University employee's sexual-assault lawsuit.
Constand's lawyer, Dolores Troiani, did not immediately return a call. A court reporting service she hired to take Cosby's deposition said this week it thought a recent unsealing order included the deposition.
A federal judge had unsealed other motions, but the deposition has never been filed in court.
Troiani also has accused Cosby's legal team of violating the confidentiality clause.
