Judge Rejects Prince Andrew’s Request to Have Epstein Victim Lawsuit Dismissed

Objectivity 4.2 | Credibility 4.6 | Relevance 4.5

Prince Andrew’s attempt to have a lawsuit dismissed from alleged Jeffrey Epstein victim Virginia Giuffre, was rejected by a federal judge in New York. Prince Andrew claimed the 2009 settlement agreement between Giuffre and Jeffrey Epstein exempted him from civil litigation. The judge said the agreement was “ambiguous” and lacked “clear and precise” drafting. Prince Andrew’s U.S. legal team signaled to seek dismissal on jurisdictional grounds, arguing Giuffre cannot take advantage of the U.S. federal court system while she lives in Australia.
