Lawyers for Prince Andrew and the woman who accused him of sexually abusing her as a teenager formally asked a judge on Tuesday to dismiss the case following the recent settlement agreement. 

The lawyers sent the request to U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan. Once he signs it, the lawsuit will be formally dismissed, Just the News reports

Kaplan had given the sides until March 17 to complete the settlement agreement, and as previously reported by Human Events News, Virginia Giuffre and Prince Andrew reached the settlement in February. 

An unsigned letter included in the settlement filing acknowledged Giuffre has suffered for years as a result of being trafficked by Epstein. 

“It is known that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked countless young girls over many years,” the letter reads. “Prince Andrew regrets his association with Epstein, and commends the bravery of Ms. Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others.” 

“Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms. Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks,” it continues. 

The settlement stopped the lawsuit before the start of evidence gathering, including depositions that would have forced Andrew to answer questions posed by attorneys.
