Prince Andrew says a U.S. lawsuit accusing him of sexual assault may need to be thrown out because the alleged victim probably lives in Australia.

In a filing Tuesday in Manhattan federal court, Andrew said a finding that Virginia Giuffre was domiciled in Australia would remove the court’s jurisdiction over the case. He asked U.S. District Judge Lewis Kaplan to force Giuffre to answer questions about her residency under oath.
