Virginia Giuffre’s Legal Team Claims Prince Andrew Has Finally Been Served With Her Lawsuit Against Him, But His Team Denies It
Nobody asked for a dark-sided, heave-inducing reboot of Are You Being Served? starring alleged child-touching royal Madball, Prince Andrew, but here we are.
While Nicki Minaj and her sex offender husband try to become dodgeball champions by reportedly dodging a lawsuit from his rape victim, Prince Andrew has been giving them some competition. Virginia Giuffre, one of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell’s victims, sued Andrew last month in New York, claiming that he repeatedly sexually abused her at Epstein and Ghislaine’s lairs when she was 17 years old. Andrew has burped out a river of denials, including the laughable claim that he hasn’t even met Virginia, even though there’s photographic proof that he has (but he claims the pic was Photoshopped). Process servers have been trying to serve Virginia’s lawsuit to THE QUEEN’s favorite but he’s been avoiding them the same way your eyes avoid landing on a picture of his face. Yesterday, Virginia Giuffre’s legal team claimed that Prince Andrew has been successfully served with the lawsuit, but of course, his team denies it.
Andrew has reportedly been hiding out at Royal Lodge and his security guards have refused to let process servers near him. There was a rumor that Andrew felt the heat at Royal Lodge so he skedaddled off to his dear mummy’s castle in Scotland to keep process servers on their toes. The BBC reported yesterday that a process server once again made a visit to Royal Lodge on August 26 to try to serve Andrew with the lawsuit, but was told by a security guard that they were instructed to not accept “service of any court process.” The process server visited Royal Lodge the next day on August 27, and after speaking to the head of security, he left the legal papers with guards at the main gate. Virginia’s team believes that means a bitch (Andrew) was indeed served:
He was advised the papers could be left with police at the main gates, and they would be forwarded to the legal team. The papers state: “The deponent did enquire whether it was possible to meet personally with the defendant, but the deponent was told that this was not possible.” Ms Giuffre’s legal team claim that by leaving the papers with the officer, the service was successfully completed.
A rep for Andrew spat out a “no comment” when asked if he has received the lawsuit. But his team does not believe that he was successfully served the lawsuit:
One reason it is believed the duke’s team does not consider papers have been served is because they maintain British legal procedures require that a valid request for assistance from UK court officials must come from a judicial or diplomatic officer in the US – and not from Ms Giuffre’s lawyers.It is understood there are also questions over the steps taken to deliver the papers, in particular, attempts to serve them personally to the prince at his home and to email them to barristers who may not be authorised to conduct litigation.
BBC royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said: “Clearly the papers have not been served personally on Prince Andrew.
Andrew has until September 17 to respond to the lawsuit or a default judgment could be ruled against him. There’s a hearing set for New York on Monday and that’s when a judge will decide whether or not Andrew was really served. The Sun adds that Andrew’s lawyers are going to try to get the lawsuit thrown out of court on a technicality. Virginia Giffure (née Roberts) sued Epstein and Ghislaine in 2009, and that lawsuit was later settled. Andrew’s lawyers apparently believe that Virginia signed a confidentiality agreement and agreed not to go legally after Epstein’s “co-conspirators.”
Andrew’s team also plans to attempt to get the case thrown out on a technicality related to a confidential settlement Roberts signed in 2009. She reportedly reached a settlement with Epstein in Florida that could contain clauses that would prevent her from taking actions against individuals she’s accusing of being the late financier’s co-conspirators.
For being so innocent, Andrew really is pulling out all the tricks to get out of talking about someone he supposedly never met.
One of Virginia’s claims is that Andrew sweat all over her as they danced at a nightclub. When Andrew denied Virginia’s story during a BBC interview, he became one of the greatest comedians of our time by saying that he was physically not able to sweat after he was shot at during the Falklands Wars. Apparently that spooked all the sweat right out of him! So I’m surprised he’s not saying that it’s impossible for him to personally accept the lawsuit since his hands are allergic to paper. Specifically, paper from a sexual abuse lawsuit.
And as for how THE QUEEN is handling her little beloved boy’s latest puddle of legal shit. Sir Ken Olisa, the first black Lord-Lieutenant for London, defended the Royal Family against accusations of racism, during an interview with Channel 4’s Black To Front Project. Sir Ken Olisa claims THE QUEEN supports Black Lives Matter:
