Attorneys for a former aide to John Edwards are seeking more information from the two-time presidential candidate for a lawsuit involving a purported sex tape.

A motion filed by Andrew Young's lawyers on Thursday seeks more details from Edwards. That comes just a couple of weeks after an attorney for Young said Edwards had privately testified in the case.

The filing does not say why Young's side wants more evidence. Most of the document was filed under seal because of a protective order keeping details confidential. A judge previously ordered that details of Edwards' deposition remain private.

Edwards mistress Rielle Hunter has sued Young to reclaim materials including a video that Young has said depicts a sexual encounter involving Edwards.
