LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Comedian Bill Cosby testified in 2005 to obtaining Quaaludes with the intent of giving the sedatives to young women to have sex, according to court documents unsealed on Monday.

Cosby, 77, made the revelation during his testimony in a civil case brought by a woman, who alleged that Cosby tricked her into taking drugs before he sexually assaulted her.

The case was settled for an undisclosed sum but the Associated Press asked the court to release the documents. The request was granted on Monday despite Cosby's lawyers arguing that the documents would cause severe embarrassment to their client.
