Prince Andrew: Will the case against him be dismissed?

Prince Andrew’s lawyers will argue in a US court later today that the civil sexual assault lawsuit against the Duke should be dismissed. 

Andrew is being sued by Virginia Giuffre for allegedly sexually assaulting her 20 years ago – when she was a teenager. 

A sealed document made public on Monday showed convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein paid her $500,000  to end her claim against him – and agree not to sue any other “potential defendant”. 

While the settlement with Epstein does not mention the prince by name, his lawyers say the deal means she cannot sue him.

Prince Andrew has consistently denied the allegations.

The papers’ coverage of the lawsuit range from wanting to see the prince face the consequences and not allowing Virginia Giuffre to be ‘silenced’. Others downplay the allegations against him, while some publications look ahead to what the prince is up against if the case isn’t thrown out today.
