Cosby lawyers: Release of deposition broke settlement terms
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.
Yesterday, 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 (troy-AHN'-ee), 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.
