Virginia settled with the late pedophile in 2009, and the details surrounding it have been confidential. Andrew is hoping the documents will help him in his fight against the same accuser.
Queen Elizabeth's son appeared like a weight had been lifted off his shoulders while riding his horse around Windsor on Wednesday.
Wearing his helmet and riding gear, Andrew strapped up with two of his friends for a peaceful ride around the royal family estate. This is the first time the Duke of York has returned to Windsor since his long holiday in Balmoral.
He looked carefree and happy, despite the ongoing sex abuse lawsuit.
That's probably because a judge sided with his legal team, granting him permission to view confidential documents that he's hoping derails his legal battle with Virginia.
As Radar reported, Virginia sued Queen Elizabeth's son for sexual abuse. She claims Epstein forced her to have sex with Andrew when she was just 17 years old.
According to reports, Manhattan District Judge Loretta Preska granted Andrew's lawyers permission to obtain a copy of the sealed agreement between Virginia and Epstein.
At a hearing last month, his attorney argued that the settlement “absolves our client from any and all liability" in the sex abuse lawsuit.
Epstein's estate had already signed off on permission allowing Andrew's team to look at the documents, but the judge needed to approve it first.
Virginia's attorneys have not released a statement regarding the judge's decision; however, her lawyer claimed the settlement was “irrelevant” to their case last month.
Andrew's not the only one with a win on his side. Last month, Virginia scored a small victory after the U.K. High Court ruled in favor of serving federal papers to the Queen's son.
Virginia filed a lawsuit against Andrew in August. She claims he sexually assaulted her when she was just a teenager in New York City after an introduction from Epstein and his right-hand woman and alleged sex trafficking co-conspirator, Ghislaine Maxwell.
Andrew has denied these claims and is prepared to fight.
