Virginia Giuffre could be compelled to reveal details of her settlement with Prince Andrew after a lawyer who is suing her made a request to a court for her to hand over documents.
Alan Dershowitz, who once served as an attorney for Jeffrey Epstein, has been accused of sexually abusing Virginia Roberts Giuffre and the pair are locked in a countersuit over a defamation case.
Mr Dershowitz, 83, who has previously represented Harvey Weinstein and former President Donald Trump, alleges that Ms Giuffre defamed him with allegations of sexual assault, which were dismissed by a New York judge last year.
He has claimed that Ms Giuffre, who was 17 at the time of the allegations, was not a victim of Epstein’s but rather served as a recruiter of young women for the financier to abuse.
“In an effort to avoid further motion practice on issues relating to damages, Prof. Dershowitz asks the Court to clarify that Plaintiff shall be required to produce documents sufficient to disclose all details of her settlements with Prince Andrew and the Estate of Jeffrey Epstein, including the amounts of those settlements,” Mr Dershowitz’s lawyers said in a filing on Wednesday.
A day earlier, news of Prince Andrew’s settlement was made public. The Telegraph revealed the figure to be £12 million – £10million for Ms Giuffre, 38, and £2million for her sex abuse charity.
