A lawyer for Bill Cosby says it would be "terribly embarrassing" if documents from a 2005 sex-assault lawsuit were unsealed in Philadelphia.

Cosby’s lawyer on Friday fought efforts by The Associated Press to unseal documents from a lawsuit he settled with a former Temple University employee.

Lawyer George Gowen III says Cosby’s deposition could detail his marriage, sex life and prescription drug use.

The lawsuit accuses Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting the woman at Cosby’s home. The settlement is confidential.

U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno asked why Cosby would be "embarrassed by his own version of the facts."

He did not immediately rule on the AP’s request.

More than a dozen women have since accused Cosby of sexually assaulting them. Three have filed a defamation lawsuit against him in Massachusetts.
