US court rejects British prince's request to drop rape case

According to the BBC, Prince Andrew will face trial in the United States in 2001 on charges of sexually assaulting a Virginia woman, Jeffrey.
According to reports, Prince Andrew's lawyers, citing an agreement signed with Jeffrey Epstein in 2009, said the case should be dropped, but New York Judge Lewis Kaplan ruled that the case could be heard.
Virginia Jeffrey accused Prince Andrew of sexual assault. Epstein, a key suspect in the case, committed suicide in prison three years ago.
Prince Andrew has always denied the allegations. However, after a US court ruling, the trial of the 61-year-old Duke of York is expected to take place later this year.
Following the US court's decision, Virginia Jeffrey said she was happy that Prince Andrew's attempt to dismiss the case had been rejected by the court and that action would now be taken against him.
