I suspect Epstein was “suicided” because he planned to release video files of his protective evidence accessed from his townhouse in NY. Those files likely would have implicated a whole bunch of folks - from Andrew, to Dershowitz to Clinton, to Trump - among others. (I recall media reports of Epstein’s escalating despondency when his lawyers were unable to secure his increasingly urgent pleas for even temporary release pending trial no matter how many conditions were imposed. Said behavior understandably got worse after his first alleged “suicide attempt” - i.e. when [italic] he [/italic] claimed he was threatened and nearly killed by another inmate just prior to Barr’s visit. . . A warning?)

Remember that Fatty Arbuckle was dragged through the mud for a crime he didn't commit because he was causing trouble for the studios.

Clinton raped more of them than Andrew. Allegedly. Sex with a minor is rape. We all know there are nuances. But if Giuffre has had the guts and/or greed to pursue this for decades - she is to be commended. Watch the four part Netflix on Epstein again. She would have had him put away in 2005 if he hadn't been given a lot of help to receive a fake sentence. Bought and paid and no doubt threatened for. She's extremely lucky to be alive imo. These are powerful and evil mofoes. Clinton and Dershowitz and Trump much more so than noodly Prince Andrew. Those men can have you murdered.
Ghislaine was a guest at Chelsea Clinton's wedding. Never forget.
[quote]In 2005, police in Palm Beach, Florida, began investigating Epstein after a parent complained that he had sexually abused her 14-year-old daughter. Epstein pleaded guilty and was convicted in 2008 by a Florida state court of procuring a child for prostitution and of soliciting a prostitute. He served almost 13 months in custody, but with extensive work release. He was convicted of only these two crimes as part of a controversial plea deal; federal officials had identified 36 girls, some as young as 14 years old, whom Epstein had allegedly sexually abused.

After the verdict came down, I was reading old articles and according to Epstein's Paris butler, Andrew loved to stay, often, at the very posh 22 Avenue Foch apartment even in JE's absence. Butler would prepare his favorite dish of pasta au gratin but won't reveal any more. JE visited Paris often and would have his usual 3-4 daily massages. He was returning from Paris when he was arrested and a call was made immediately to the butler probably instructing him to 'sanitize' the place.

Ghislaine Maxwell was born in Maisons-Laffitte, Yvelines, France, the ninth and youngest child of Elisabeth (née Meynard), a French-born scholar, and Robert Maxwell, a Czechoslovak-born British media proprietor. Her father was from a Jewish family, and her mother was of Huguenot (French Protestant) descent. Her mother said that all her children were brought up as Anglicans.

"Guilty of rape" is a legal distinction that occurs once a jury finds someone guilty of rape. A person can plead guilty after being charged with rape too. It's important to respect our justice system and words have meaning. Someone is not "guilty" by the transitive property of tabloid thinking you are associating in. Also, if i sent a friend an escort for his birthday and didn't tell him the guy was paid to fuck him, he would not be guilty of soliciting a prostitute.
I have no idea if Prince Andrew fucked any of these women or whether he was provided women by Epstein/Maxwell (to possibly create blackmail material). I have no idea where these potential crimes occurred, what state or country they occurred in either. I'm inclined to believe the women, but I can't remember where they said it happened.
He has been disgraced. He is permanently attached to this shitshow. The royal family will spend millions defending him--sadly he has enough resources to go on forever but his quality of life is permanently damaged by this. The end game does not always have to be guilty verdicts. If he did commit crimes and a prosecutor can prove it, I'd be happy to see him put on trial.

You’re stupid too, r102 and r103. I have never defended Andrew, and Giuffre claimed she was 17 when she met him. So she’s lying?
Unlike idiots like you, I live in reality. It’s a he said/she said. That may be enough in a civil claim, but it will go nowhere criminally.
She also was sexually mature, albeit young, so the term pedophile is inaccurate.
I find a 40 year old man having sex with a 17 year old disgusting. I would feel the same were Giuffre 22 at the time, whether she had sex with him of her own volition or not. I have also always found Andrew thick and odious.

The Clintons have always had shady dealings with people that always ended up spilling out into the mainstream media going all the way back to when Bill was running for president in 1992. The two of them have serious moral and ethical issues.
I say all of this as someone who supported and voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 and who is a staunch Trump hater. But I refuse to be blind to the true reality about who the Clinton's really are. They are just as shady and slimy as the people caught up in this child sex ring. The two of them should know better, but like so many others who should know better, too. They don't and are perpetual fuck ups!

She even asked to have that photo with him in which she's smiling, so she could show her mother and grandmother, who were clearly aware (in her words) of what she was apparently about to do with him.

No, lying racist scum at r119, she didn't say she was forced to have sex with him. This is why she's only filing civil, not criminal charges against him. After her attempts to extort money from him failed, she switched to civil charges, to try to get money. Read her affidavit. If he raped/sexually abused her, then she would be filing criminal charges.

We all arrived back at the townhome and went upstairs. Epstein took a picture of me and Andy with my own camera. The picture above is that picture, which has been widely circulated on the internet. Andy has his left arm around my waist and is smiling. The picture was developed on March 13, 2001, and was taken sometime shortly before I had it developed. I was 17 years old at the time. 37.
I wanted a picture with the prince because I was keeping in contact with my family. I had told my mom and my grandma that I was meeting Prince Andrew and that I’d take a picture for them. They told me to “be careful.” 38.
After the picture, Epstein and Maxwell kissed me and said to “have fun.” They left Andy and me alone upstairs. We went to the bathroom and bedroom, which were just steps away from where the picture was taken. We engaged in sexual activities there. Afterwards, Andy left quickly with his security. 39.
I chatted with Epstein about this the next day. I told him, “it went great.” Epstein said something to the effect of, “You did well. The Prince had fun.” I felt like I was being graded. It was horrible to have to recount all these events and have to try to meet all these needs and wants. I told Epstein about Andy’s sexual interests in feet. Epstein thought it was very funny. Epstein appeared to be collecting private information about Andy. 40. When I got back from my trip, Epstein paid me more than he had paid me to be with anyone else –approximately $15,000. That money was for what I had done and to keep my mouth shut about “working” with the Prince. 41.
The second time I had sex with Prince Andrew was in Epstein’s New York mansion in spring 2001. I was 17 at time. Epstein called me down to his office. When I got there, Epstein was there, along with Maxwell, Johanna Sjoberg, and Andy. I was very surprised to see him again. Epstein and Maxwell were making lewd jokes about “Randy Andy”. 42. I had the impression that Andy had come there to see Epstein and to have sex me with. There was no other apparent purpose for Andy to be there. 43.
I was told to go upstairs with Andy and to go to the room I thought of as the “dungeon” (the massage room, but it is really scary looking). I had sex with Andy there. I was only paid $400 from Epstein for servicing Andy that time.

Deep financial and legal walls will keep Andrew from facing the full consequences of his actions. However as yet more damaging facts emerge his Pariah status will become yet worse.
The phenomenal drop in status and travel will impact upon him psychologically, as The Royal Family steadily subtly reconfigures. Despite healthy Windsor genes I imagine Andrew won't match his father's longevity. He's ageing fast, which is surprising given his protestations of innocence.

For the “ he is a Pedophile” troll I have linked Wikipedia’s definition of what a Pedophile is. Just so we are all on the same page, a Pedophile is a person interested in Prepubescent children. That means they have not reached puberty. While throwing terms like “Pedophile” at Prince Andrew may seem relevant, it is absolutely incorrect.
Prince Andrew is guilty of being an idiot, arrogant and entitled, but he is also a scapegoat for this whole Epstein scandal. Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane what, 26 times? Is he getting this grief?

The rapist apologists like "Dutchie" and the other ratbag who keeps banging on about Guiffre's supposed willingness and enthusiasm to take part in her own abuse are saying this minor girl chose her course and profited from it happily. The cunt who mentions the civil case brought against Andrew as proof Guiffre doesn't have a criminal case fails to understand a civil case is often brought against those who you can't successfully bring a criminal case against--like, for instance, a member of the royal family.
It figures right-wing rapist apologists would sprout up, but who knew they would be so desperate they would be willing to defend a known liar like Andrew? Defending these scumbags make you one.

Prince Andrew's crime would be having sex with a girl who was a victim of sex traffic. Similiar to someone who has sex with a prostitute with a pimp. She was 17 at the time which is legal age in NY. I'm not sure what other crime he committed. Even a civil suit seems iffy since Andrew may have not known her situation. He should have just admitted what happened and said that Epstein was using her to blackmail him. That seems like the truth.

R135 this has been discussed ad nauseam over the past year on DL. Please pay attention. Andrew committed a serious federal crime - as he had sex with a victim of sex trafficking. The victim had been trafficked across state lines, hence it being a federal crime.
Whether the victim was 17 or 70, it doesn't matter. Age of consent has NO relevance regarding laws pertaining to victims of sex trafficking.
You Europeans, with your age of consent at 13 or so, are fixated on the age of the victim. The age of the victim is irrelevant as discussed above.
Also, in the US, unlike in Europe, drugging and sodomizing a 13 yo by a 40 something male is a serious crime. Hence the reason a certain pedo director can never go near the US or other countries with extradition treaties.

The crime happened in the US - where apparently everyone in Hollywood was doing that sort of thing at the time. Polanski cannot be charged for a crime committed in the US.

There’s a difference between someone who fucked an adult-looking 17-year-old and another who is attracted to/ rapes prepubescent children. The latter is a pedophile in its true definition. I’ve had a couple of them as patients when I worked in jail psych. One was a former priest who sexually abused his preteen relatives all under age of 8. It took willpower for me to not beat the shit out of him. A pedophile isn’t someone who has sex with 17-year-old with all the physical attributes of an adult women. Is it technically illegal if it happens? Sure, but no one was trying to prosecute Jerry Seinfeld when he dated Shoshanna what’s-her-name when she was 17.
These threads are invariably overtaken by rightwing loons who label anyone who offers facts or questions, as rape or child abuse apologists. They use language similar to Pizza Gate rightwing nut jobs, who go on about Clintons and others being child abusers/ traffickers. No proof except “evidence” of Maxwell being at Chelsea’s wedding or Epstein being a friend.
Truth is, Epstein ran in a circle with many powerful and/ or wealthy individuals including popular entertainers and the super rich. He gained legitimacy through charitable donations to universities among others. It was why no one batted an eye when Gates sought to work with Epstein even after the latter’s conviction. Money talks, and that should be the cautionary tale in this tawdry case. Money trumps common sense, and money is able to buy status. Status allows one a certain level of immunity from adherence to social norms that the rest of us must adhere to.
How about those VERY young teenage groupies that Led Zeppelin and David Bowie cavorted with? Some of them as young as 14 and looked like it, if you read the groupies’ stories. It continues today in the music industry, if you think R Kelly was an anomaly you’re a moron. It’s acceptable until tawdry details come out, same as in the Epstein saga. Last I heard, Jimmie Page was still lauded as a great rocker not a groomer who fits the definition of pedophile more than sleazy Andrew who fucked 17 year-old trafficked prostitute.

HUH? You're nutty R177. Read the Vanity Fair article from 20 years ago or watch the 4 part Netflix documentary on Epstein before you post such nonsense. This is not about famous men having women throwing themselves at them. Famous men don't often fuck such women - because the get instantly caught. Famous men with unusual sexual proclivities need trusted friends. And the challenge of less willing females.
POWERFUL men were fucking procured women trained and paid by intricate games of silence and protection. On different continents and residences - all run by a world class sadist with a taste for young women. Who happened to be a billionaire and own the single largest private residence in NYC. His little island too. Sex perverts with money and a connected companion can indulge themselves in the long game. No doubt it excites them. Epstein did, time and again. Some of his women were fast procurements, but most of them presented a challenge of pursuit and initiation. A teenage sister of a woman he was already "helping." His companion was Ghislaine. She was not remotely his slave. She too is a sadist and a woman who liked to systematically procure, degrade and pimp out young women to powerful men. Epstein loved art and music and some politics - but all his tastes ran to a certain type of YOUNG teen woman. Most all sexual psychopaths have a type. He had the money to search and recruit his. When he got them close - he liked to degrade them in petty ways. Funny thing that he had equal PROJECTED disdain for his high end kinky old male friends. Because Epstein imagined himself to be sexually irresistible and worthy of worship. He liked to handle women in robotic ways and have his feet and body massaged more than he liked to fuck. He already owned these girls before he sent them to others. Were some of them free to leave? Yes. Were they ALL his victims. YES.
Epstein's high profile friends - their tastes might have been different. Kinky or rougher or rapier. No sweat Prince. But they ALL had one thing in common. They ordered these girls up Y O U N G.
Ghislaine liked to participate - given the chance. The sexual psychology is interesting. It's doubtful that she ever got off without her own hand.

So I think what will happen comes down to whether Biden is going to run again. If he runs again, the DOJ will make every effort to prosecute Prince Andrew one way or another to appear sufficiently woke, responsive, and responsible,
If Biden opts not to run again, then there is no need for the diplomatic headache that this would entail and Andrew will be forgotten, at least in the US.

That’s a supposition in your part r182. By her account she met him 3 or 4 times, some twenty years ago. They weren’t friends. She wasn’t hanging out in his home. She was a nobody who couldn’t do anything for him beyond give him an orgasm, something plenty of women were willing to give him. Being a sperm receptacle, particularly for a not very bright man, isn’t rememberable. So there’s a very good chance he doesn’t remember her.

If I’m not mistaken, the US legal system does not prosecute people “in absentia”.
The chances of Andrew ever being extradited to America, either directly from the UK or from any other (EU-) country with an extradition treaty with the US are infinitely small. Not worth the political fallout.

I met Prince Andrew at around the same time he is alleged to have had sex with Virginia. While he emanated a lot of inner confidence, I thought that he was physically very, very unattractive as well as short. So do find it hard to think that women were throwing themselves at him then - especially attractive and young ones like Giuffre was at that time. Not to mention I agree that privacy and secrecy was a concern - he would not want a hookup to sell a kiss and tell to a tabloid. He is also known to be very cheap and would not have paid for an escort.

By the way, height is another thing that Andrew has lied about - I can tell you that he is definitely NOT 6ft. I would guess that he is more like 5ft8 at most, maybe even shorter.

As long as prostitution is still not an actionable crime, if anything, the teenaged prostitute should face prosecution.

It is pure speculation that is what they are going to do. Exile will simply mean less visibility and a formal acknowledgement he will have no visible presence in the working life of the royal family. They all do tons and tons of stuff the media never knows about. The speculation he may need to leave his home is just that. It would be entirely possible he still has Christmas with the family, privately. Surely it hangs on whether or not he is charged and convicted with doing anything criminal. In any event, fair to say he is now highly damaged goods, he won't be back at work in any meaningful way and the question is how much of his dignity, if any, can be salvaged (like the title)?
I'd bet money this thing will be settled with the official reasoning to spare the Queen, particularly in her jubilee year.

For the defenders of air miles Andy who insist he didn't do nothing wrong cuz Giuffre was 17 and, you know, a prostitute, she is suing the sweaty pig under the New York Child Victims Act which defines child as under 18 years of age. Guiffre alleges randy Andy sexually assaulted her on several occasions without her consent and knew or should have known that his good friends Epstein and Maxwell trafficked underage females.
The reason the legislation even exists is due to the recognition that victims of sexual assault and sex trafficking often are unable to process what happened to them for many years and should be able to sue beyond the age of 23, which was the previous limit.

Sounds like she was tossing with the idea of whether she could claim it applied to her. She also has to prove that she didn't consent - and given that she willingly and smilingly chose to have her photo taken with Andrew earlier in London, when she knew she was about to have sex with him, it can't automatically be assumed that she didn't consent.

R227 You need to read more about what sexual exploitation and sex trafficking involves.
It is you that is begging the question by claiming that sexual assault victims who smile are willing and consensual. Begging the question fallacy: Begging the question is a fallacy in which a claim is made and accepted to be true, but one must accept the premise to be true for the claim to be true.
The Homeland Security government website says this about sex trafficking. Pay attention to the last sentence please.
Traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to lure their victims and force them into labor or commercial sexual exploitation. They look for people who are susceptible for a variety of reasons, including psychological or emotional vulnerability, economic hardship, lack of a social safety net, natural disasters, or political instability. The trauma caused by the traffickers can be so great that many may not identify themselves as victims or ask for help, even in highly public settings.

But Andrew, the navy man - has been handled with the greatest of care his whole life. That interview he did tells us just how ill prepared he is for anything coming at him that questions his version of the real world. He's a simp.
I'm sure Ghislaine and Epstein laughed and laughed about ANDY. Remember that portrait of Bill Clinton that Jeff Epstein purchased and displayed in his NYC mansion?

In this way both Andrew and the public are prepared for the actuality of significant demotion. It becomes an accepted possibility, so the deed when it comes seems inevitable.

“Guiffre’s settlement agreement is one of the broadest I have ever seen,” Rahmani said. “As a plaintiff’s attorney, I never release unknown parties or entities, especially for a mere $500,000 for sexual abuse. The language gives Prince Andrew another strong legal defense to Guiffre’s claims, in addition to the jurisdiction and other defenses his lawyers have raised.”
But Rahmani added that just because the prince “may prevail on a legal grounds, does not mean he is exonerated or factually innocent of wrongdoing.” “It’s not your typical release, and I would never agree to language like this for a client unless it’s an offer she can’t refuse, which this was not,” he said. “At best, Guiffre will get a default judgment against Prince Andrew because the court can’t compel his attendance in the United States. Unless Maxwell cooperates with prosecutors, and they can independently verify the information she provides, I don’t think the Prince will receive criminal justice.”

"Attorney David Boies, who represents Giuffre, said in a statement Monday that the language about protecting potential defendants in the settlement between his client and Epstein was “irrelevant” to the prince’s lawsuit in part because the paragraph did not mention the prince and he didn’t know about it.
“He could not have been a ‘potential defendant’ in the settled case against Jeffrey Epstein both because he was not subject to jurisdiction in Florida and because the Florida case involved federal claims to which he was not a part,” Boies said.
Boies said he wanted the Epstein-Giuffre agreement publicly released “to refute the claims being made about it by Prince Andrew’s” public relations campaign.
Giuffre sued the prince in August, saying he had sexually assaulted her multiple times in 2001 when she was 17.
The prince’s lawyers say Andrew never sexually abused or assaulted Giuffre and that he “unequivocally denies Giuffre’s false allegations against him.”
They also wrote that Giuffre sued Andrew “to achieve another payday at his expense and at the expense of those closest to him. Epstein’s abuse of Giuffre does not justify her public campaign against Prince Andrew.”
Arguments over the request to dismiss the lawsuit are scheduled for Tuesday.
Recently, the prince’s lawyers have said Giuffre should be disallowed from suing in the U.S. because she has lived most of the past two decades in Australia and can’t accurately claim to be a resident of Colorado, where her mother lives.
Judge Lewis A. Kaplan has rejected an attempt by the lawyers to halt progression of the lawsuit and to subject Giuffre to a deposition over the issue of where she is a resident.
In late 2019, Prince Andrew told BBC Newsnight that he never had sex with Giuffre, saying, “It didn’t happen.”
He said he has “no recollection” of ever meeting her.
The interview was widely panned by critics who said Andrew seemed insensitive to Epstein’s victims. Afterward, the prince stepped back from royal duties.
A message seeking comment was left with a spokesperson for Giuffre’s lawyers and with Brettler."

"Prince Andrew's accuser Virginia Giuffre is 'UNLIKELY to agree to pay-off' to settle sex assault lawsuit as Duke 'tries to sell £17m Swiss chalet to foot legal bills'
Ms Giuffre, who claims she was forced to have sex with the Duke of York three times on the orders of her paedophile abuser Jeffrey Epstein , does not want to do a deal and push for a trial, insiders have claimed. She is said to want a trial to send a message that anyone 'with power and privilege' accused of abusing young girls will face the full force of the law. And Ms Giuffre has told her lawyers that agreeing a multi-million pound settlement with Prince Andrew - who denies the allegations being made against him - would would not 'advance that message', according to the Telegraph."

The Maul is reporting Prince Andrew is pushing hard to sell his $17M Swiss ski chalet to pay his legal bills (and possibly settle the matter) and that the Queen is not paying out. I never know whether or not to believe anything in the rag. It could be true, it could be made up out of whole cloth to annoy the family because they're over there skiing right now, or somebody could have leaked it to confuse disapproval over the Queen using revenue that is arguably sourced from public funds to pay the bills for somebody everybody loathes.
I am certain the Telegraph story about the possibility of settlement was smoke from the Vatican. They do want this settled (the Royal they) before the Jubilee starts in earnest. The story was to get the plaintiff thinking about the idea. Interesting, too, the story in the Mail from a friend of the plaintiff claiming all this could have been avoided if he'd just apologized. Which seems rather unlikely. But maybe that was the first message of we're opening to settling. Maybe the other side planted the idea. In any event, this doesn't go to court and it does go away, though Andrew is ruined.

There's no case to answer in British law, and never has been. The prostitution age in 2001 was 16, and sex with a trafficked woman wasn't made illegal until 2009. The alleged offences also took place in a jurisdiction where the prostitution age was 16 and sex with a trafficked woman was legal.

Unpopular opinion here, but -
Giuffre has Andrew by the balls because of the royal family’s reliance on public opinion and popular support to maintain a very tenuous illusion in the modern age: that one family is somehow entitled to rule. A quick criminal trial would almost have been easier for the royals than this decades-long news story being dragged through the papers every few weeks.
Giuffre is angry with Andrew, genuinely angry. That doesn’t mean she’d never take the money, but for now at least, she prefers propping him up and beating him around the head in the court of public opinion like a piñata, because every time that happens it weakens him in the eyes of the public and it hurts his status in the royal family itself. It’s a very bad sign for him that someone allowed word in the paper that the Queen would not be footing his legal bills. Finally his Mummy is cutting her ties.
Moreover, Giuffre has no time or money pressure to settle. Her counsel is famously great in court, not just a typical big firm attorney who’s an expert at negotiating settlement packages. If you have David Boies, you put him in front of a judge. And she’s likely not paying his hourly rates—either he’s donating his time or he’ll get a cut of a judgment at the end of things. He also desperately needs good press at the moment, after his Weinstein issues, and while his law firm has hit the skids.
I don’t think Andrew will be getting a deal.

R305, exactly. There is always some confusion between his civil risk and his criminal risk. The lawsuit is on the basis that he did know or ought to have known about her. It's civil. He does not face criminal prosecution and there's no indication he will. The royal family's concern is turning this into history. I wonder if it is all an elaborate game. Float the notion of settlement. Float the idea the Queen isn't a bottomless pit of money. Float the idea he's trying to sell his chalet and here's what it's worth. If you subscribe to the idea there's no such thing as coincidence, that's a lot of coincidences.

The case of 'A.N and V.C.L versus the UK’ has been hailed as a ‘landmark decision in the fight against trafficking in human beings’. The ruling could have far-reaching consequences for how law enforcement, the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) and the Home Office treat victims of trafficking."

Giuffre's lawyers are suing under the Child Victims Act but when I read it there was a seeming contradiction in the language and I wondered why Andy's lawyers weren't underlining it. Turns out they are:
"The Times of London reports the new filing from Andrew’s legal team argues the Child Victims Act is “not a reasonable mechanism to address the injustice of child sexual abuse in New York” because it classifies under-18s as minors “even though the age of consent in New York is 17.” Andrew is arguing “the issue of consent is unsettled with regard to those—like Giuffre—who were between the ages of 17 and 18.”
Of course, Giuffre is claiming the sex was non-consensual but it's a strangely worded statute anyway. Then I read that Giuffre claims the abuse with Andrew started when she was 16, so maybe that's the argument.

So much so, that Virginia has put prince Andrew in such a position, that she's making a member of the British Royal family have to sell his beloved vacation home just to finance his legal bills/settlement? But Andrew put himself in thus position by having sex with trafficked minors.

“It wasn’t particularly funny twenty years ago,” says one source. “But the fact he still comes out with this ghastly stuff, after everything he has been accused of, really shows how arrogant and out of touch he is. The extraordinary thing about Andrew is that he is even more arrogant in person than the newspapers make him out to be.”

After the sale of his chalet Andy will trade in his Bentley with a Nissan and order pizza from Woking. He will replace his daughter's bodyguards with himself and sleep with his grandchildren's nanny. The Prince will spend evenings watching Strictly Come Dancing reruns while dialing every sheik and bilingual dictator he has ever met to offer access to Harry's tailor. Another revenue stream will be sales of Fergie's next children's book "Budgie the Helicopter Won't Budge! Weight Watchers for the Preschooler". After his mother dies Charles will pretend to forgive him and later have him shot while fishing in the middle of Lake Tahoe.

It's a way around him having to testify in deposition or at trial. If he doesn't show, the judge rules on the claim and awards damages if a finding of liability is determined. Basically, what's already out there is the record. Nothing worse, nothing more embarrassing, unless they produce something hiterto unknown that is worse. I don't understand why it would be hard to enforce (or any harder to enforce than an award after a normal trial.) The downside for him is Guiffre can talk about the matter for as long as she likes. Settling would theoretically provide for better outcomes outside the money involved.

Like you say, this would be an issue in any civil case—the difficult is enforcing a US legal order across borders if the other country is unwilling to cooperate. So if Andrew didn’t appear and had a default judgment entered in which he was ordered to pay Giuffre $10 million, there’s no real way for the court to force Andrew to pay that unless we had cooperation from the UK. And in this case it seems fair to assume we would not have cooperation. It would likely mean that Andrew couldn’t enter the US without risk, though.

One issue with Andrew’s default option is the PR/diplomatic difficulty of government and/or Crown involvement. The royal family tries to stay far far away from any suggestion of influencing politics or substantive (as opposed to ceremonial) governance. If there’s some kind of open and public request from the US Government for the UK government’s assistance in enforcing a default judgment, any whiff that the UK government is giving Andrew special treatment will give the royal family image-makers a lot of heartburn.

Andrew’s finances have always been a rather murky matter. His mother gave him a house, Sunninghill Park, for a wedding present, which he subsequently sold in a shady deal to a Kazakh billionaire who is part of the country’s ruling elite. The arrangement in 2007 saw Timur Kulibayev, son-in-law of the former president of Kazakhstan, pay £3m ($4 million) above the £12m ($16 million) asking price. Andrew has argued the transaction was legitimate and he was just ‘fortunate’ to get such a good price for the house.
It is thought that some of the millions he received from that sale went into refurbishing his current home, Royal Lodge, which he lives in, for free, at the grace and favor of the queen, who owns it.
Some of the money from Sunninghill, it is also assumed, went into the luxury, $22 million Swiss ski chalet which the couple bought in 2014 and are now, not entirely coincidentally, selling.
A source told The Daily Beast that Andrew has found a buyer for the property, however, he and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson, who bought the house together, are thought to only have around $4m of equity in the property.
So, he has some money, but, as The Sunday Times reported this week, Andrew is thought to have spent in excess of $2.7 million on lawyers so far.
Virginia Giuffre has no doubt done the math.
Although it is understood his legal bills have been guaranteed by the queen, Andrew is expected to pay them in the end (presumably when the chalet sells).
And if she is not paying his legal bills, it seems deeply unlikely his mother, who has, let us not forget, put plenty of clear blue water between the institution and Andrew, would pay out a huge cash settlement to Giuffre.
Doing so would be anathema to the family.
The Mirror recently reported that Prince Charles and Prince William are resolutely opposed to the notion of the queen funding Andrew’s legal battle and think it is up to him to “sort out his own mess.”
And were the queen, who turns 96 in April, to die suddenly, King Charles would be more likely to send his brother to the tower for the rest of his life than settle his civil suit for him.

Construction on Sunninghill was never even finished when Andrew so suspiciously sold it for way over market price and then it sat there, unfinished, in ruins, for years. Then he got the sweetheart deal on Royal Lodge, the former home of The Queen Mum. He did have to invest a few million of his own funds, though, on refurbishing the Lodge as part of the deal.

I know more about criminal law than civil. But there is something called contempt of court that you can get jailed for. Brendad Ickson got jailed for contempt during her divorce case.
I don't see Andrew's strategy being default judgment. I think he would settle before trial. Part of the settlement agreement could be that the $ amount be kept secret, no talking further about the case, etc.

LONDON — Buckingham Palace announced Thursday that “with the Queen’s approval and agreement,” all of Prince Andrew’s military affiliations and remaining royal patronages have been returned — a devastating blow for Elizabeth II’s second son, who is facing a U.S. civil lawsuit that accuses him of having sex with a teenager trafficked by disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
Andrew, who denies the allegations, has been mostly out of the public eye for the past year, and many organizations distanced themselves from him after he defended his relationship with Epstein in a disastrous 2019 BBC interview. But he had retained his honorary military roles with multiple British regiments. And the Buckingham Palace website had listed dozens and dozens of schools, hospitals and clubs with which he was still a royal patron — including the Army Officers’ Golfing Society, the Fly Navy Heritage Trust, the Foundation for Liver Research and the elite Westminster Academy.

Not it isn't r429. The sitting monarch can strip away the HRH form of address (that's what it is, really) and the princely status at anytime, at their leisure. It's one of the last standing powers the monarch has.
The 1917 LP lays out who received these honors at birth. But that LP (and any LP re these titles) can be overruled at anytime by a sitting monarch. And they don't necessarily need another LP to overrule it - they can simply make their wishes publicly known.
Buck Palace today referred to Andrew as "Duke of York" in their statements, and not "HRH The Duke of York". What does that tell you? It's says plenty. The HRH is mothballed, probably permanently.

But Thursday’s move means the former Navy pilot and divorced 61-year-old father of two adult daughters is now facing his accuser alone — without the shield of honors he has carried most of adult life.
The two-sentence statement from the palace continued, “The Duke of York will continue not to undertake any public duties and is defending this case as a private citizen.”
Where the money will come from to defend himself is a hot topic in Britain.
Royal biographers have observed that Andrew has often been seen as a favorite of his mother. But the 95-year-old queen has also been insistent during her long reign that duty, service, honor, and the preservation of the monarchy are supreme.
Andrew will also stop using the honorific title “His Royal Highness,” though he remains a duke and a prince. His many patronages will be distributed among other members of the House of Windsor.

He will be Andrew, Duke of York when he dies. Unless otherwise directed.

No! He was born with the HRH Prince Andrew, just like HRH Prince Harry was stripped of the Duke of Suck-it. he was not stripped of his HRH Prince Harry. The Palace will use the title, Prince Andrew, Duke of York but not use the HRH. He will always be HRH Prince Andrew. It's just wordplay by the palace. Now if the Tampon king takes-over, that's a different story.

"In 1917, the Queen's grandfather issued new letters patent that limited the number of royal family members with an HRH title.
These stated that 'the children of any Sovereign of these Realms and the children of the sons of any such Sovereign and the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales shall have and at all times hold and enjoy the style, title or attribute of Royal Highness with their titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their respective Christian names or with their other titles of honour'. "
I can't see that Charles would issue a new letters patent to change Andrew's standing. It would only stand to stir things up again. Once the emotion fades from this and the plaintiff settles the case, much of the emotion will fade and he will remain in the background. Honestly, sometimes you wish we valued masturbation more. It would prevent a lot of problems.

R436 - Prince Harry was not stripped of the "title" Duke of Sussex or the "style" of Prince or the "style" of HRH.
Prince Harry agreed to not "use" the style of HRH as he was no longer a working UK Royal.
When Prince Harry dies, if nothing further changes, he will be HRH Prince Henry, Duke of Sussex.

Stripped was too strong of a word, I agree. Harry was "advised" by the Palace, future tampon king& "the little grey men who run the palace" not to use the HRH or the Suck-it title. My belief is the tampon Prince is going to DIE, he looks terrible-Queen really wants William& Kate to take over when she dies.

Harry advised NOBODY of NOTHING, and agreed to nothing. He was ORDERED by his grandmother the Queen to stop using his HRH form of address, which he did immediately.
He was, effectively, stripped of the HRH. You could say it was 'mothballed', or put in abeyance for now. Either way, its not his to use at the moment.
It can be reinstated just as quickly by the monarch if they see fit to do so.

No one took his HRH away. He's choosing not to use it. The Queen didn't strip him of his military titles either. He turned them in when the military regiments went public and said they didn't want to be associated with him in any way, shape or form.
The Queen didn't do a thing.

The BRF brought him into Buckingham Palace and the queen, under the vehement guidance of Charles and William, told Andrew he had to surrender his military titles and stop using HRH. Andrew gave up none of that willingly, though in order to save face, it's purported to be an "agreement." He is not wanted by any of the organizations, civilian or military, with which he was associated. It was very much not his choosing but the enforced demand of all those organizations and his family.

A very close source told the writer Barry Levine that if the world knew the full extent of Clinton and Trump's involvement with Epstein and his "girls" that there would be no 2016 Election.
Among much more salacious things, it is believed that Melania was one of Epstein's former girls. He is for sure the one that introduced her to Trump.
The younger, the better Epstein said. Melania was long past being part of Epstein's family. But a whore is a whore. And she was a marketed and trafficked whore. Trump had much more illegal activities going on with Epstein girls. Andrew was dumb enough to be photographed...TWICE. The rest is all on destroyed or hidden hard drive. Epstein taped everything and everyone. Though they mostly didn't know it. At the time.
There is NO doubt in my mind, that Bill Clinton enjoyed many special "massages" from Epstein girls.
I'm also quite sure that Epstein DID commit (assisted) suicide. He paid his way out of this world too.

What happens if Prince Andrew is innocent? What happens if for instance Andrew knows he didn’t do Virginia, because he is either Gay or impotent and when he was talking about not being able to sweat , maybe what is more real is he couldn’t get it up?
It seems that Andrew is an easy fall guy. He has no political influence , he is clearly entitled and stupid. But it seems weird that there have not been many women coming out like Virginia? It seems weird that Virginia had sex with him 3 times but apparently he represents all men . So Andrew was the only famous person she had sex with?
The whole thing is weird. She is supposed to be underaged , which of course she was not in the UK . She meets him in a nightclub. A nightclub you have to be 18 to enter.
There is so much that doesn’t add up here.

One thing I do not understand - PA is not being charged with any crime. This is a civil case. It's about a financial settlement. But his accuser, Virginia Giuffre was an associate of Maxwell and Epstein in their trafficking of underage girls, and that is a major crime. Yes, she was a juvenile, but juveniles can be tried for crimes as an adult. How can she be coming forward like this?

No prosecutor would ever try her, because she was clearly coerced. The Andrew defenders here keep trying to make it about anyone but him, but a 17 year old sex trafficking victim being pimped out to a prince is never going to be viewed as anything but the victim she is.

Evil people exist. Not only the rapists. Life is cheap. For enough $$$. Prince Andrew is not exactly a scapegoat. But he should have kept his mouth shut or apologized and went to rehab.

R449, at the time the news came out about “Katie Johnson,” the thirteen year old that was allegedly raped by Trump, there was an investigation, or investigations, and reporters tried to get some of the former Epstein girls to talk. A few said that they did see Clinton but didn’t have sex with him, he was very nice to them and seemed to be there to talk with Epstein or some other VIP. That was probably about trying to get money for The Clinton Foundation, which was very influential at the time.
As far as whether Clinton had sex with them, who knows. But it sounds like he was nice to them and they had no complaints about him, so either they were covering for him because they thought he was nice, or maybe he was careful to not give Epstein blackmail material. Obviously, nobody had a problem telling on Prince Andrew, so maybe he wasn’t that nice.
