The American lawyer, caught up in the same under-age sex claims as Prince Andrew has told ITV News that no deal was ever done to keep them both out of court.
Claims that the prince had sex with an underage girl could be aired in full in court after an American lawyer, accused alongside him, filed a civil case against the alleged victim.
Alan Dershowitz says it will allow him, and the Duke of York, a chance to clear their names.
