Prince Andrew’s lawyers say the court has no jurisdiction over Virginia Giuffre’s lawsuit



A motion filed in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan states: “Ms. Giuffre alleges that she is a citizen of the state of Colorado, the evidence shows that she actually resides in Australia, where she has lived last nineteen minus two years “.

Giuffre alleges that she was trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein and forced to have sex with her friends, including the prince. He says the assaults took place in London, New York and the US Virgin Islands, and that Andrew was aware that he was 17 years old when the alleged incidents began.

In a previous one dismissal motion filed Oct. 29, Andrew’s attorney said he “unequivocally denies Giuffre’s false allegations against him.”

The motion filed Tuesday also calls on the court to “order Ms. Giuffre to respond to written requests for directed discovery related to her address and to file a two-hour remote deposition limited to the question of her address. “.

CNN has contacted Giuffre’s lawyers and Prince Andrew to comment.

In November, a federal judge in Manhattan said Andrew can face a trial date between September and December 2022 as long as the matter is not resolved or dismissed.

Oral arguments are set for January 4, when Prince Andrew’s lawyers are expected to argue to dismiss Giuffre’s civil lawsuit.
