Prince Andrew’s Case Related to Alleged Sexual Abuse of a Minor Dismissed After Settlement

In January, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, requested to dismiss his case was denied by a judge, and the case will move forward.

It was also reported that Prince Andrew had his military links and Royal patronages removed because of his connections to convicted U.S. sex offender Jeffrey Epstein and after a scandalous BBC TV interview of Virginia Guiffre. She claimed she was a “sex slave” of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew was a participant.

Giuffre said she was telling the truth about Prince Andrew. “He was an abuser. He was a participant,” she says on the show.

“The first time in London, I was so young. Ghislaine woke me up in the morning  and said, ‘You’re gonna’ meet a prince today.’ I didn’t know at that point that I was going to be trafficked to a prince,” Giuffre said.

On Tuesday, US court filing showed that Giuffre’s lawsuit was dismissed after Prince Andrew paid a settlement.

NPR reported:

A U.S. judge dismissed the sex abuse lawsuit against Britain’s Prince Andrew on Tuesday, three weeks after lawyers for the American woman who filed it reached a deal calling for the prince to make a substantial donation to his accuser’s charity and declare he never meant to malign her character.

U.S. District Judge Lewis A. Kaplan signed court papers dismissing the August lawsuit after lawyers on both sides asked him to do so earlier in the day. The judge had given them until March 17 to complete the deal or he would set a trial date. The lawsuit cannot be refiled.

The lawyers revealed three weeks ago that they had tentatively agreed to a settlement in which the prince would donate to Virginia Giuffre’s charity and make the declaration about her character.
