Prince Andrew settles civil sexual assault case

From Morning Report, 7:09 am on 16 February 2022

Prince Andrew has settled a civil sexual assault case brought against him in the United Stated by Virginia Giuffre.

Giuffre was suing the Duke of York, claiming he sexually assaulted her on three occasions when she was 17, allegations he has repeatedly denied.

Last month Prince Andrew's lawyers had wrote to a US judge asking for a jury trial, but this morning a document submitted to a US court says Prince Andrew and Giuffre have reached an out of court settlement.
