Prince Andrew dealt another blow as judge DENIES bid to crush sex assault lawsuit because accuser ‘lives in Australia’


PRINCE Andrew has been dealt another blow as a judge has DENIED his bid for his sex assault lawsuit to be thrown out because his accuser “lives in Australia”.

The Duke, 61, is facing a lawsuit filed by Ms Giuffre who claims she was forced to have sex with him three times between 1999 and 2002 — in ­London, New York and on Epstein’s private Caribbean island.

But his legal team demanded it be ditched as she “lives in Australia and not the US”.

His lawyers claimed questioning Ms Giuffre under oath would show she is “domiciled” in Australia instead of Colorado, as she says – and so a New York court would have no jurisdiction.

But their bid has been denied by a judge.

Andrew has always strongly denied all allegations made against him.
