The attorney for the woman who has filed a civil lawsuit against Prince Andrew in connection with the Jeffrey Epstein sex trafficking ring, says the royal will face a jury in court.

"This case will come before a jury, the jurisdiction of the federal courts in New York I think is unquestioned, the conduct took place in New York," said Boies. "This case is not going away. Virginia Giuffre is not going to go away, and I'm not going to go away. This case is going to go forward, whatever obstacles that they try to put in front of us, we will overcome, once this case goes to court."

"On one occasion, Prince Andrew sexually abused [Giuffre] in London at Maxwell's home. During this encounter, Epstein, Maxwell, and Prince Andrew forced [Giuffre], a child, to have sexual intercourse with Prince Andrew against her will," the court documents read.

The court filing continues: "On another occasion, Prince Andrew sexually abused [Giuffre] in Epstein's New York mansion in this District.

"During this encounter, Maxwell forced [Giuffre], a child, and another victim to sit on Prince Andrew's lap as Prince Andrew touched her. During his visit to New York, Prince Andrew forced [Giuffre] to engage in sex acts against her will. On another occasion, Prince Andrew sexually abused [Giuffre] on Epstein's private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Little St. James."
