In papers filed in Carroll County Circuit Court this week, the 18-year-old woman asked a judge to compel the former Atlanta quarterback to give a sworn statement.
Michael Vick is serving a 23-month sentence on a federal dogfighting conviction.
The woman, who was 17 when she filed the lawsuit against Marcus Vick last year, claims in the suit that she was a 15-year-old honor student at Christiansburg High School when she first had sex with a then-19-year-old Marcus Vick in January 2004 while he was a quarterback at Virginia Tech.
Marcus Vick has denied a relationship with the woman.
The woman wants to know if Michael Vick knows anything about the alleged relationship, said Steven Smith, one of the lawyers representing the woman in the $6.3 million lawsuit.
``If Marcus has told Michael certain information about this case or has discussed it with him, it would certainly be relevant,'' Smith said.
A hearing on the request is scheduled for Jan. 23 in Carroll Circuit Court.
An after-hours message left Friday with Marcus Vick's attorney, Lawrence Woodward Jr., was not immediately returned.
Marcus Vick and two of his former teammates at Tech were convicted in 2004 of three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for giving three underage girls liquor and encouraging them to strip.
In the lawsuit, the girl identifies herself as the one who had sex with Vick on that night in January 2004 that led to his arrest and conviction.
Marcus Vick was cut by the Dolphins last year.
