#AceNewsReport – Oct.07: In an order on Wednesday, United States District Court Judge Loretta Preska, sitting in Manhattan, granted permission for Prince Andrew’s lawyers to receive a copy of the confidential agreement between the late financier Jeffrey Epstein and Virginia Giuffre, the prince’s accuser.

Ms Giuffre has also accused Epstein of abuse.
Epstein’s estate had agreed to let the Duke of York, Queen Elizabeth’s second son, review the agreement, but court approval was needed.
The prince, 61, has not been charged with crimes and has “categorically” denied Ms Giuffre’s claims against him.
Andrew Brettler, a lawyer for the prince, said in an email he expects to receive the agreement soon from Ms Giuffre’s lawyers.
At a hearing last month, Mr Brettler told the judge overseeing Ms Giuffre’s lawsuit that he believed the agreement “absolves our client from any and all liability”.
Lawyers for Ms Giuffre did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
David Boies, one of her lawyers, said in a court filing last month that he believed the settlement was “irrelevant” to Ms Giuffre’s case against Prince Andrew.
Ms Giuffre, 38, has accused the prince of forcing her to have sex with him when she was under age, at the London home of Epstein’s longtime associate Ghislaine Maxwell.

She also said Prince Andrew abused her at Epstein’s mansion in Manhattan and on Epstein’s private island in the US Virgin Islands.
Prince Andrew faces an October 29 deadline to formally respond to Ms Giuffre’s lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages.
Epstein, a registered sex offender, killed himself at age 66 in a Manhattan jail in August 2019 while awaiting trial on sex-trafficking charges.
Ms Maxwell has pleaded not guilty to helping recruit and groom underage girls for Epstein to abuse.
Her trial in Manhattan is scheduled for November 29.
