Prince Andrew accused of playing game of ‘hide and seek’ in sexual assault case as US judge rules legal papers can be served via his LA-based lawyers

A US judge has ruled that legal papers relating to a sexual assault lawsuit can be served to Prince Andrew via his LA-based lawyers. The Duke of York, 61, has been accused of "actively evading" formal efforts to serve him with a lawsuit on behalf of Virginia Giuffre. Giuffre, who launched legal proceedings against him last month, accused Prince Andrew of battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress over alleged misconduct from about two decades ago. Ms. Giuffre, 38, was underage at the time of the alleged abuse, which she said occurred around the time the financier Jeffrey Epstein was sexually abusing her. Her legal team sought intervention from district judge Lewis Kaplan, with lawyers accusing the duke of dodging the papers, accusing him of playing a "game of hi...
