Bill Cosby Wants Settlement Money Paid Back If Entire File Goes Public

Accuser Andrea Constand may be forced to repay some or all of the money paid out in the 2006 settlement

Bill Cosby and his legal team are ready to go to war against the former Temple University employee who accused the star of drugging and raping her more than a decade ago.

Andrea Constand
has requested to have her entire court file released to the public which details her 2005 sexual-battery lawsuit against the comedian, reports TMZ. The file had been confidential until The Associated Press and the New York Times obtained portions of Cosby's deposition earlier this month.

The NYT insists the records were "never sealed," but instead available through a court reporting service.


With Constand's request to release the entire court file comes pushback from Cosby's team. According to new legal documents, the star says it's unfair for Constand to break their confidentiality agreement and keep the money paid out from the deal.

Bottom line: Cosby believes Constand should be required to return a portion or all of the money he gave her if the file goes public.
