Bill Cosby is demanding that he get his money back in a civil case that's behind the criminal charges he faces.

FOX's Michelle Pollino reports:

Bill Cosby's breach of contract lawsuit files this week states that Andrea Constand and others involved in a civil suit back in 2004, repay the comedian the confidential sex-abuse settlement and contends that the settlement bars Constand, who is at the center of this criminal case Cosby faces from "voluntarily" discussing the case with law enforcement.

Constand and her mother met with police last year as police reopened the case and ultimately arrested Cosby. The suit also faults Constand's mother, lawyers, and the National Enquirer .

The criminal case against Cosby moves forward with a preliminary evidence hearing March 8.
