Court papers served to Prince Andrew amid rape allegations by Epstein victim

DM

Following the filing of a sexual assault lawsuit against Prince Andrew last month, the Prince has reportedly been served with court papers outlining the allegations against him. According to the Mirror, legal staff handed the court documents to royal protection officers at Windsor Palace two weeks ago, after being told that the lawyers could not meet with Andrew in person. Andrew is reportedly understood to be aware of this development. Under the Hauge Convention, the team representing Virginia Roberts Giuffre must present the papers to Andrew in person, but according to the Mirror, legal documents filed in the US state that the summons have been served to Andrew properly under UK law. If found to be properly served, Andrew has until next Friday to respond to the allegations against him, of which he has previously stated that he has no recollection of. The suit’s first hearing will be on September 13, where her lawyers must tell he judge is Andrews has the documents. If found to not have been served the documents by December 7, “legal experts warn the case may collapse,” according to the Mirror.
