Prince Andrew lawyer: abuse case might not be authorized | present

The abuse complaint against Prince Andrew may not be approved, according to his lawyer.

Brettler indicated during the phone conversation that Giuffre had settled a separate lawsuit in 2009. With that, she would have admitted that she lacked the legal standing to sue the prince. “The prosecution has struck an agreement that could exempt the Duke of York and others from potential legal liability,” the lawyer, who called in from Los Angeles, said. “That litigation is bogus, non-viable, and most likely illegal.”

Giuffre would not have been able to legally subpoena Prince Andrew. The summons papers, for example, would have been given to a police officer guarding the prince’s residence. The paperwork were given over in the proper manner, according to the girl’s lawyer.

Giuffre, now 38, says that the British Queen Elizabeth’s son sexually molested her more than two decades ago, around the same time that she was sexually abused by controversial billionaire Jeffrey Epstein. The charges are false, according to the prince.

The next hearing in the case will take place on October 13th.
