A North Carolina state judge has sealed the deposition of former presidential candidate John Edwards’ mistress for at least 45 days, The Charlotte Observer reported.

Rielle Hunter sued former Edwards aide Andrew Young and his wife Cheri for the return of an alleged sex tape of Rielle and Edwards.

Young has asked the judge dismiss the lawsuit because of Hunter’s repeated refusal to give a deposition — Hunter’s attorneys claim that Young only wants testimony from Hunter to include in his tell-all book.

Superior Court judge Allen Baddour ordered Hunter to give the deposition, but did not agree to dismiss the lawsuit. He said the deposition will remain sealed for 45 days, after which both sides will need to reach an agreement as to what will be made public.
