Lawyers: Sex abuse lawsuit against Prince Andrew settled

NEW YORK (AP) — A tentative settlement has been reached in a l awsuit accusing Prince Andrew of sexually abusing Virginia Giuffre when she was 17 years old in which the prince will make a substantial donation to the charity of his accuser and says he never intended to malign her character, according to a court filing Tuesday.

Attorney David Boies, who represents Giuffre, said in a filing in Manhattan federal court that lawyers on both sides were informing the judge that a settlement in principle has been reached and they’ll request a dismissal of the lawsuit within a month.

Meanwhile, the letter said, the judge should suspend all deadlines and hold the action in abeyance.

Giuffre sued Andrew in August. The American accused the British royal of sexually abusing her when she was 17 while she traveled with financier Jeffrey Epstein.

Andrew has strenuously denied Giuffre’s allegations and attempted to get the lawsuit tossed.

Attached to the letter by Boies was a statement that read: “Virginia Giuffre and Prince Andrew have reached an out of court settlement. The parties will file a stipulated dismissal upon Ms. Giuffre’s receipt of the settlement (the sum of which is not being disclosed).

Well, who saw that coming? Everybody, that’s who.

So Andy never meant to malign Giuffre’s character, eh? But he did mean to sexually assault her.

Kind of stinks, doesn’t it? Saves Brenda’s platinum jubilee clamjamfray from being overshadowed, I dare say.

So he's in the clear and nobody's allowed to say he was found guilty of being a nonce.

What is it with these fuckers and their fucking twisted codes of "honour" that all seem to rely on "well, technically..."?

With any luck Brenda will cut him off, the settlement will clean him out, and he'll be next spotted outside Woking's Pizza Express after closing time with a flower in his hair and "Get it here" sign.

Settling out of court isn't necessarily the same as being found against, and is sometimes to save the time, money and reputational damage of a court case. I'm sure these apply to the man of functionality infinite wealth with no real job who everyone already thought was a cunt.

It's just another case of the rules not applying if you have enough money.

I have done it myself. I park illegally if the 15€ fine is worth the avoided hassle.

I don't, for the record, fuck children and buy them off with millions of pictures of my own mother.

Saw a good tweet summing up the chronology:
I’ve never heard of her, and I’ve never met her.
I was in Woking at Pizza Express.
I can’t sweat.
I’m going to defend this and I want a trial by jury.

Here is a huge bag of cash.

And I hope the cash is accounted for, from the so called sale of his ski lodge, and not the tax payer, although we probably payed for the ski lodge in the first place
