Prince Andrew lawyers say accuser ‘waived rights,’ urge judge to dismiss case

A lawyer for Britain’s Prince Andrew tells a New York judge that he should dismiss a sexual assault lawsuit against the British royal because of a settlement his accuser signed in 2009.

Andrew Brettler says Virginia Giuffre had “waived her rights” to sue other defendants in relation to alleged sex crimes committed by late disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.

“Miss Giuffre intended to release a broad category of individuals, including royalty, including businessmen,” says Brettler, referring to the agreement between Giuffre and Epstein which was made public for the first time yesterday.
