Virginia Roberts Giuffre’s attorney, David Boies, is requesting the New York court place her sexual abuse lawsuit on hold pending settlement.
According to court documents filed Tuesday, “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. Prince Andrew intends to make a substantial donation [to a charity] in support of victims’ rights.”
The court filing said, “Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms. Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks.”
“Prince Andrew regrets his association with Epstein and commends the bravery of Ms. Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others,” and the statement continues. “He 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.”
