Court Unseals Settlement Between Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew Accuser Virginia Giuffre

HeadlineJan 04, 2022

A newly unveiled 2009 confidential settlement between convicted predator and sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein and survivor Virginia Giuffre has revealed Giuffre agreed to restrictions on her ability to sue others involved in Epstein’s network of abuse. The deal also awarded Giuffre a payment of $500,000. The settlement was made public as part of a lawsuit Giuffre filed against British royal Prince Andrew last year and may impact whether Giuffre’s suit moves forward. Prince Andrew’s lawyers are expected to argue again for a dismissal of her case against him today. Giuffre has accused convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell of trafficking her to Prince Andrew when Giuffre was 17.
