HILLSBOROUGH, NC (AP) -- The former mistress of John Edwards wants a North Carolina judge to issue a contempt order against a former Edwards campaign aide in a case involving a purported sex tape.

Lawyers for Rielle Hunter filed a motion Wednesday in Orange County Superior Court asking for a contempt of court finding against Andrew and Cheri Young and their lawyer.

Hunter's motion claims the Youngs have shared information with federal prosecutors in a separate criminal case involving Edwards. Her lawyers say that violates protective orders in the civil case.

Hunter is suing the Youngs for the return of various items, including what's purported to be a sex tape featuring Edwards.

Young has said he helped cover up Edwards' affair during the 2008 presidential campaign and worked to keep Hunter in hiding.
