Prince Andrew pays settlement in court
The Duke of York is paying the financial settlement to his accuser Virginia Giuffre and formally ending a civil case brought against him.
“Stipulation of Dismissal” papers have been filed, which will formally close the case.
The amount agreed to be paid by Prince Andrew in the settlement last month has not been revealed.
Reportedly the court documents say each side will “bear her/his costs and fees”.
According to reports, the court papers say that the case is now dismissed following the settlement from 12 February.
Once New York Judge Lewis Kaplan signs the order, the civil case will be formally ended.
The settlement reportedly accepted no liability and Prince Andrew has always strongly rejected claims.
The prince has settled an unspecified amount.
There has been speculation about how Prince Andrew might pay the cost of the settlement.
