The Prince Andrew, Duke of York and third son of Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom, is increasingly closer to the trial against him in the United States. Since recently a federal judge in New York rejected a motion to dismiss the civil lawsuit against the prince who has been accused of alleged sexual abuse.

As we have told you in AmericanPost.News, the Duke of York has been in the midst of scandal ever since He was linked to the late mogul Jeffrey Epstein, who was convicted in 2008 of have a child trafficking network in the elite world and be known as sexual predator and pedophile.

Virginia Giuffre, Epstein’s victim, was the one who sued Prince Andrew, since the woman assures that the British he sexually abused her in 2001, when she was 17 years old.

In his ruling, Judge Lewis Kaplan wrote: “Ms. Giuffre’s complaint it is neither ‘unintelligible’ nor ‘vague’ nor ‘ambiguous‘. It alleges discreet incidents of sexual abuse in particular circumstances in three identifiable locations. Identify to whom he attributes this sexual abuse ”.

On the judge’s decision, Buckingham Palace said that “Will not comment on legal matters”. The victim alleged in the lawsuit that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked her and forced her to have sex with her friends, including Prince Andrew.

The woman assures that the duke knew she was a minor when you committed the crime; however, Prince Andrew has denied the accusations against him.

Giuffre presented his case under the Child Victims Law, a New York state law enacted in 2019 that expanded the statute of limitations in child sexual abuse cases to give survivors more opportunities to seek justice.

Lawyers for Queen Elizabeth II’s son argued that the Victim’s lawsuit violated the terms of her 2009 settlement agreement with Epstein in Florida, in which he agreed to a “blanket release” of the claims against Epstein and others.

That agreement, which was made public last week, shows that Epstein paid Giuffre $ 500,000 for what abandon the case without admitting responsibility or fault. The prince’s name does not appear explicitly as part.

However, Giuffre’s attorney, David Boies, argued that the settlement is irrelevant to his lawsuit against Prince Andrew, noting that Andrew did not know him at the time and that it did not apply to him.
