Reinforcing claims made beforehand to The Day by day Beast about Andrew feeling “optimistic” forward of a movement to dismiss the case which shall be heard subsequent week, one supply stated of the movement: “Andrew has nice arguments and likes his possibilities.”

His argument is basically the identical as Maxwell’s—that these younger ladies made all of it up for cash, and so they had been all simply associates and there wasn’t any intercourse trafficking and the ladies who’re making these claims are liars and gold diggers. It’s all the identical, blame-the-victim protection. This verdict demonstrates you could’t obscure the overwhelming quantity of proof by these smokescreens, and that jurors should not ready accountable the sufferer.”

Giuffre is suing Andrew and alleges that she was intercourse trafficked to him by Epstein.

Regardless of the makes an attempt by Andrew’s camp to ship business-as-usual alerts, there isn’t any doubt that the penumbra of Maxwell’s overwhelming guilt is the worst doable gentle to light up Andrew’s crunch courtroom date subsequent week, by which he’ll attempt to get Giuffre’s case dismissed.

Prematurely of subsequent week’s listening to, the courtroom has ordered that the phrases of a settlement between Epstein and Giuffre in 2009 be made public. Brettler has constantly argued that the phrases of that settlement launch Andrew from all authorized jeopardy.

The Giuffre camp are taking the potential affect of the 2009 settlement far more critically than the argument about domicile, which will be opaque.
