Will Virginia Giuffre’s civil case against Prince Andrew be dismissed?

Washington Correspondent

Lawyers for Prince Andrew are arguing that the civil case against him brought by Virginia Guiffre should be dismissed at a hearing in New York.

They claim a 2009 agreement between Ms Guiffre and Jeffrey Epstein – which was unsealed earlier this week – means no more legal action against “any other potential defendants”.

Ms Guiffre has claimed she was forced by Esptein to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 – claims the Prince strongly denies.
