Prince Andrew to face civil court case – judge dismisses Prince’s legal representation…

The Duke of York is being sued by Virginia Giuffre, formerly known as Virginia Roberts, who claims he “committed sexual assault and battery” upon her when she was a teenager. Andrew vehemently denies the allegations.

A judge has rejected Prince Andrew’s attempt to have the sexual assault lawsuit against him thrown out.

US judge Lewis Kaplan refused to dismiss the case after hearing arguments from lawyers representing the royal and his accuser Virginia Giuffre.

It means the royal will face a civil sex case trial later this year.

Speaking to Sky News this evening, Ms Giuffre’s lawyer David Boies said she is “pleased with the court’s decision”.

“It is only one step in the process, it does not resolve the case but it rejects certain legal defences Prince Andrew was putting up to avoid the trial,” he said.
