PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Bill Cosby's first accuser has asked a judge to release the comedian's full deposition in her sex-assault lawsuit, saying Cosby and his representatives broke the confidentiality agreement that sealed the 2006 settlement.

Andrea Constand's lawyers argued in a motion Wednesday for release of the entire deposition, including questions Cosby answered under oath about his use of quaaludes, his alleged use of hush money to silence women, his deal to have an accuser's story spiked and his alleged affairs.

The motion comes after U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno unsealed excerpts from Cosby's deposition this week in response to an Associated Press request. They show Cosby admitting he obtained quaaludes in the 1970s so he could give them to young women he pursued for sex.

Cosby's lawyers didn't return calls for comment.
