Lawsuit against Prince Andrew: first defeat in court

Prince Andrew suffered his first defeat in court over a lawsuit filed against him by American Virginia Giuffre in the case of late financier Jeffrey Epstein's sex crimes.

According to AFP, the judge rejected a petition by a member of the British royal family, who demanded to drop a civil lawsuit in a sexual harassment case.

Prince Andrew's lawyers insisted that the lawsuit could not be considered in court. Judge Lewis Kaplan disagreed with this demand.

The petition was based on a “legal deal” between financier Jeffrey Epstein and American Virginia Giuffre, according to which the American was to drop claims against ” potential defendants, “including a member of the royal family.
