Legal Reader: Epstein accuser files rape lawsuit against Prince Andrew.
Virginia Giuffre, among Jeffrey Epstein’s most prominent accusers, has filed a lawsuit against Prince Andrew, alleging that the British royal raped and sexually abused her when she was still a minor....
“Twenty years ago, Prince Andrew’s wealth, power, position, and connections enabled him to abuse a frightened, vulnerable child with no one there to protect her,” the lawsuit alleges. “It is long past the time for him to be held to account.”
In a statement issued to ABC News, Giuffre explained her reasoning and elaborated somewhat on her claims against Andrew.
“I am holding Prince Andrew accountable for what he did to me. The powerful and the rich are not exempt from being held responsible for their actions. I hope that other victims will see that it is possible not to live in silence and fear, but one can reclaim her life by speaking out and demanding justice,” Giuffre told ABC News through her attorneys.

The Progressive Pulse: Title IX prohibits discriminatory dress codes in a school that requires girls to wear skirts, federal appeals court rules.
“We’re pleased that today’s decision recognizes that Title IX’s broad promise of equal opportunity for girls applies to discriminatory dress codes,” said Galen Sherwin, senior staff attorney with the ACLU Women’s Rights Project. “Dress codes that enforce different rules based on old-fashioned conventions of how girls should dress, look, and behave while intentionally signaling that girls are not equal to boys perpetuate gender stereotypes and should have no place in our public schools.”
