Documents were reportedly emailed to the Duke of York’s US lawyer, Andrew Brettler, in Los Angeles today. The Duke of York’s legal team have been given seven days by the High Court to challenge its decision to begin notifying Andrew about the US civil case against him.

The High Court in London accepted on Wednesday a request by Virginia Giuffre’s lawyers to formally contact the Duke about the legal proceedings.

Ms Giuffre is suing Prince Andrew for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was 17.

Prince Andrew has denied the allegations.

On Monday evening Managing Editor of @LawCrimeNews Adam Klasfeld tweeted documents on Twitter and wrote: “Prince Andrew’s been served… again, Virginia Giuffre’s lawyer says.
