Prince Andrew Accepts Epstein Rape Case Service, Accuser’s Lawyer Says

Prince Andrew has accepted he has been served in his rape case relating to Jeffrey Epstein, which opens up a potential court showdown, said the accuser’s lawyer.

According to Virginia Giuffre, the complainant, she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew in London, New York, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Guiffre filed a  lawsuit in August in a New York federal court, which reiterates public claims as a victim of the disgraced American financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who was abused by Andrew on multiple occasions in 2001 when she was under 18.

However, the U.S. lawyer representing the Duke of York specified that he would dispute the validity of service and told a New York judge the case was “baseless.”

According to Giuffre’s lawyer, David Boies, Andrew allegedly played “a game of hide and seek,” after the prince evaded the service by holing up at Royal Lodge, in Windsor, and Balmoral, in Scotland.

However, he now says the service has been accepted by the prince’s legal team through Andrew B Brettler, his U.S. lawyer.

According to Boies’ statement to The Daily Mail: “Andrew’s counsel has agreed that service has been made. Theoretically, the clock is now ticking. However, it would be normal for them to ask for, and for us to agree to, a reasonable extension of time to respond to the complaint.”

Giuffre’s legal team filing seen by Newsweek, reads: “Pursuant to the portion of the Court’s order granting [Giuffre’s] motion for alternative service on Prince Andrew through his United States counsel, on September 17, 2021, [Giuffre’s] counsel emailed Mr. Brettler the Summons, Complaint, and this Court’s order approving alternative service.

“Plaintiff’s counsel also sent the Summons and Complaint to Mr. Brettler at his office in Los Angeles, California.”
