PRINCE ANDREW LAWSUIT STANDS FOR NOW
NEW YORK (AP) – A judge has – for now – refused to dismiss a lawsuit against Britain’s Prince Andrew by an American woman who says he sexually abused her when she was 17. The judge has rejected an argument by Andrew’s lawyers that the suit by Virginia Giuffre should be tossed because of an old legal settlement the woman had with Jeffrey Epstein, the financer who she says set her up with the prince. The judge said that deal didn’t protect the prince from a lawsuit now.
