"As the civil case rumbles on, Andrew’s legal team is preparing to use a settlement Ms Giuffre, 38, signed with Epstein in 2009.
The document, which was recently unsealed, saw Ms Giuffre accept undisclosed damages from Epstein after lodging a criminal complaint accusing him of sexual exploitation and abuse.
Part of the agreement, which was signed in Florida, meant that she could never bring further cases against Epstein or anyone associated with him."
".....Since being released to Andrew’s legal team last week its reference to the word “royalty” has been revealed.
Last month his US-based lawyer, Andrew Brettler, told a pre-trial hearing that he believed it released the Duke and others from “any and all potential liability.”
They are now expected to jump on this wording to argue that it nullifies Ms Giuffre’s claim.
This is because no other member of the Royal Family has been implicated in the Epstein scandal or is thought to have come into contact with Ms Giuffre."
"His team is reportedly set to argue that the wording can therefore only apply to Andrew - freeing him from any future claims.
" The ensuing settlement was used by Alan Dershowitz, Epstein’s former lawyer, to get an abuse claim Ms Giuffre made against him struck out."
This is why Giuffre and her lawyers were fighting tooth and nail not to have the previous settlement unsealed and released to Andrew's legal team. Hmmm.
