Lawyers for Prince Andrew, Duke of York, on October 29 issued a blistering attack on a woman who has accused him in a lawsuit of sexually abusing her when she was still a minor and he was a guest of Jeffrey Epstein.

The lawyers for Andrew, 61, denied in a new court filing in New York City that their client, who is also known as the Duke of York, had ever sexually abused or assaulted the woman, Virginia Giuffre, who has been one of Epstein’s most prominent accusers.

Andrew’s lawyers argued in the court papers that Giuffre’s lawsuit was part of an effort by her over more than a decade to profit from allegations she had made against Epstein and others. Andrew’s lawyers claimed that Giuffre had sold articles and photographs to the news media and entered into secret agreements to resolve her abuse claims.

“Giuffre has initiated this baseless lawsuit against Prince Andrew to achieve another payday at his expense and at the expense of those closest to him,” Andrew’s lawyers wrote. “Most people could only dream of obtaining the sums of money that Giuffre has secured for herself over the years.”
