According to a U.S. court document dated Oct. 25, Judge Lewis A. Kaplan set July 14 as the deadline for submitting all evidence, including a potential deposit from the Duke of York.
Giuffre says the assaults took place in London, New York and the US Virgin Islands, that Andrew was aware that she was a minor (17) when it started and that she had been trafficked by Epstein.
Andrew, 61, has consistently denied the allegations, telling the BBC in 2019: “It did not happen. I can absolutely categorically tell you that it never happened. I have no recollection of ever having met this lady, no one at all.”
Earlier this month, the Metropolitan Police Service decided to drop its investigation, which was triggered by the case, after reviewing a number of court documents, including those released in August.
The Duke of York was served legal papers for the trial by Giuffre’s lawyers in September.
