Written by Sky News UK on January 26, 2022
Prince Andrew has demanded a trial by jury as he officially responded to Virginia Giuffre’s sexual assault civil lawsuit.
Court documents filed in New York today show the prince has denied all of the allegations against him and “hereby demands a trial by jury on all causes of action asserted in the complaint”.
Ms Giuffre accuses the Duke of York, of forcing her to have sex more than two decades ago at a London home of convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.
Earlier this month, following a US judge’s decision to allow Ms Giuffre’s lawsuit against him to proceed, Buckingham Palace announced Andrew would have his military titles and patronages removed.
