Prince Andrew to face civil sex assault case after US ruling – BBC News – Latest News Today
Prince Andrew is to face a civil case in the US over allegations he sexually assaulted a woman when she was 17.
Virginia Giuffre is suing the prince, claiming he abused her in 2001.
His lawyers said the case should be thrown out, citing a 2009 deal she signed with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. But a New York judge ruled that the case could be heard.
The prince has consistently denied the claims. Buckingham Palace said it would not comment on an ongoing legal matter.
