A 2009 lawsuit settlement that Prince Andrew's lawyers claim protects him from being sued by an American woman has been publicly released.The lawyers said the $500,000 settlement between Virginia Roberts Giuffre and Jeffrey Epstein was released in Manhattan federal court on Monday.The private 2009 legal deal resolved Giuffre's allegations that Epstein had hired her as a teenager to be a sexual servant at his estate in Palm Beach, Florida.Andrew was not named in that lawsuit, but Giuffre had alleged in it that Epstein had flown her around the world for sexual encounters with numerous men "including royalty, politicians, academicians, businessmen and/or professional and personal acquaintances."The prince's attorneys say a line that prevents Giuffre from suing anyone who could have been a potential defendant in the lawsuit would protect Andrew.Giuffre sued the prince in August, saying he'd sexually assaulted her multiple times when she was 17.The prince maintains the assaults never happened.
