Prince Andrew can review 2009 Jeffrey Epstein settlement


NEW YORK,OCT6(REUTERS)– Prince Andrew will have a chance to review a 2009 settlement agreement that he hopes will shield him from a civil lawsuit accusing him of sexually abusing a woman two decades ago, when she was underage.

In an order on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Loretta Preska in Manhattan granted permission for Andrew’s lawyers to receive a copy of the confidenti­al agreement between the late financier Jeffrey Epstein and Virginia Giuffre, the prince’s accuser. Giuffre has also accused Epstein of abuse.
