Jeffrey Epstein Accuser’s 2009 Settlement Unsealed

The settlement shows Epstein paid Giuffre $500,000 to drop the case without any admission of liability of fault.

A settlement from 2009 between Jeffrey Epstein and Virginia Giuffre, the woman who accused him of sexual abuse and of trafficking her to prince Andrew and other men, was unsealed yesterday. The settlement shows Epstein paid Giuffre $500,000 to drop the case without any admission of liability of fault. The document also said it serves as an agreement to ‘remise, release, acquit, satisfy and forever discharge’ parties and ‘any other person or entity who could have been included as a potential defendant’ but does not explicitly list Andrew. Two other documents were filed along with the settlement agreement including a ‘stipulation of dismissal’ and a complaint from Epstein both of which remain sealed. The document was unsealed as part of her lawsuit against Prince Andrew in which she alleges Epstein trafficked her and forced her to have sex with his friends including the Prince, who she says was was aware that she was only 17 years old at the time. Prince Andrew has denied the allegations.
