PHILADELPHIA — Bill Cosby’s lawyers argued on Tuesday that his admission to using quaaludes in the 1970s doesn’t mean he drugged and sexually assaulted women.

The comments came as the lawyers asked a court to preserve the confidentiality of Cosby’s 2006 settlement in a sexual-battery lawsuit, which the accuser wants unsealed.

Cosby’s lawyers instead attacked the weekend release of his deposition by a court reporting service and said the deposition and other filings unsealed this month have led to erroneous reports that brand Cosby a rapist.
