(Reuters) - Bill Cosby has sued a woman whose allegations that he drugged and sexually assaulted her sparked the only criminal charges against the disgraced comedian over his running sexual assault scandal, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

The lawsuit, which was filed under seal in a federal Pennsylvania court, named Andrea Constand and her attorneys, Dolores Troiani and Bebe Kivitz, the Times reported. The newspaper said the lawsuit alleges they breached an agreement in a previous civil suit brought by Constand which was resolved out of court with a confidential settlement.

Reuters could not independently verify the report.
