Hearing scheduled in John Edwards sex tape case

A North Carolina judge has scheduled a hearing to review the civil case involving former Sen. John Edwards and a sex tape purportedly involving him.

Judge Michael Morgan has scheduled the status review for Monday afternoon in Pittsboro. The meeting comes a week before a scheduled hearing on charges by Edwards' former mistress that a former campaign staffer should be held in contempt of court.

Rielle Hunter is suing former Edwards staffer Andrew Young for the return of personal property, including the purported sex tape. Hunter says Young, his wife and their lawyers violated a judge's order by sharing information with federal prosecutors pursuing criminal charges against Edwards.

The Youngs say they were complying with a federal judge's orders.
