U.S. Judge sets January date for hearing in sexual abuse civil lawsuit against Prince Andrew



A New York judge has set a date to hear Prince Andrew's plea for dismissal of the sexual assault case brought against him by Jeffrey Epstein accuser, Virginia Roberts.



Judge Lewis Kaplan said the court would hear 'the defendant's motion to dismiss the complaint' on the morning of January 4 next year.



A complaint was filed in Manhattan federal court by Virginia Giuffre, who accussed the Duke of York, 61, of sexually assaulting her when she was a minor over 20 years ago.



Ms. Giuffre alleges that late disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein lent her out for sex with his wealthy and powerful associates, including Andrew.Latest Post
