Young talks one-on-one with ABC11

February 16, 2010 12:47:11 PM PST
In a one-on-one interview with ABC11 Eyewitness News, Andew Young says he has hired a new team of lawyers to represent him in a lawsuit filed by Rielle Hunter - the woman who had an affair with John Edwards and gave birth to their daughter."We've hired some new folks that do know more about civil law and will be able to take care of this appropriately," Young said.

Young also says he turned over two computers to his lawyers Monday to comply with a court order.

Rielle Hunter sued Young over a sex tape and other items she left behind in a house she rented with the Youngs at Governor's Club.

Young has already complied with a court order and has turned over copies of a sex tape showing Hunter and Edwards together.

Young says he thinks it's interesting that Hunter has hired two high powered lawyers - Wade Barber and Alan Duncan - to represent her.

"I can tell you that from what I heard is that Rielle doesn't have the expenses to or the motivation to go after this like she is," Young said. "I can't see that Rielle is paying for the well-heeled lawyers that she's got. She wouldn't have known to pick Wade Barber and Alan Duncan for attorneys. She's from New Jersey. She wouldn't have known to pick those two."

ABC11 asked Young if his computer is scrubbed to benefit the civil case, could that potentially harm the grand jury investigation?

"That argument could be made," Young replied. "This is some of the original evidence. On top of this, there's a great concern there's a lot of attorney client privileges information between me and my attorneys over the last several years."

The next hearing in the case was scheduled for Wednesday, but Hunter's attorneys tell ABC11 that the hearing has been rescheduled for next week.
