Prince Andrew Settles
“Prince Andrew intends to make a substantial donation to Ms. Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights.”
Virginia Giuffre’s attorney David Boies wrote a letter to Judge Lewis Kaplan today informing him that his client had come to a settlement with Prince Andrew in her action again him.
Boies wrote on behalf on his client and Prince Andrew’s lawyers, and said that they anticipated filing a stipulation dismissing the case within thirty days.
Attached to Boies’ letter was a note on the stipulation of the settlement.
“Virginia Giuffre and Prince Andrew have reached an out of court settlement,” it reads.
“The parties will file a stipulated dismissal,” it says, “upon Ms. Giuffre’s receipt of the settlement (the sum of which is not being disclosed).”
Prince Andrew, the document says, will donate a “substantial sum” to Virginia Giuffre’s charity. This charity is likely Victims Refuse Silence, a Florida based tax-exempt organization that Giuffre founded in 2015.
“Prince Andrew regrets his association with Epstein, and commends the bravery of Ms. Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others.
Prince Andrew “pledges to demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein by supporting the fight against the evils of sex trafficking, and by supporting its victims,” the document finishes.
Giuffre filed a complaint against Andrew in August 2021, right before a deadline to file within a new statute of limitations provided by a New York state law expired. She accused Prince Andrew of sexually abusing her on multiple occasions when she was a child under the age of 18, and described how Jeffrey Epstein, convicted child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, and Andrew forced her to have sexual intercourse with Andrew “against her will.”
