Prince Andrew ' served with sexual assault lawsuit (again)' as Virginia Roberts' lawyers send papers by email and FedEx to his LA-based attorney



The Duke of York has been served with a sexual assault lawsuit after the relevant paperwork was delivered to his US lawyer, according to Virginia Roberts' lawyers.


Virginia Roberts is seeking damages after alleging Andrew sexually assaulted her, a claim he vehemently denies.


Her lawyers said earlier this month the duke had officially been served with the papers, but his legal team disputed the claim.


The issue of whether or not Andrew has been notified about the case known as service of proceedings was contested during the first pre-trial hearing of the civil case last week in New York.


It was reported the judge in the case, US district judge Lewis Kaplan, had ruled Ms. Giuffre's legal team could attempt to deliver the papers to Andrew B Brettler, the duke's Los Angeles-based lawyer.Latest Post
