Judge Allows Rudy Giuliani to Seek New Trial to Challenge $148 Million Defamation Verdict

Rudy Giuliani’s request for a new trial to contest the $148 million defamation verdict granted to Georgia Election Workers has been approved by the bankruptcy judge.

Based on Bloomberg’s report, Giuliani has disclosed a total debt of $500 million and assets ranging from $1 million to $10 million.

As a result of the bankruptcy filing, any ongoing legal proceedings have been temporarily suspended. However, the judge has now granted Giuliani permission to pursue a fresh trial in order to contest the substantial $148 million judgment.

“He’s currently suspended from the practice of law, so he can’t earn income right now as a lawyer,” Giuliani’s lawyer Gary Fischoff said, according to Reuters. “There’s no pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and the debtor is going to give full disclosure.”

Excerpt from Reuters:

A U.S. bankruptcy judge on Friday gave Rudy Giuliani limited permission to challenge a $148 million defamation verdict won by two former Georgia election workers whom he had falsely accused of fraud after former Republican President Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane said at a court hearing in White Plains, New York, that he would allow Giuliani to seek a new trial to challenge the amount of damages awarded to Wandrea “Shaye” Moss and her mother, Ruby Freeman, but not pursue a full appeal. But first, Lane said, Giuliani will have to provide more information about who is paying his legal bills.

Gary Fischoff, an attorney for the former Trump lawyer, told Lane that Giuliani cannot pay the $148 million verdict, much less have anything left over to pay others who have sued him.

Giuliani has told the bankruptcy court that third-party legal defense funds are footing the bill for cases he is facing related to his 2020 election claims, and that they have already paid $847,000 to cover his defenses. Fishcoff said Giuliani intends to provide further information on his funding sources next week.

The defamation lawsuit involved Giuliani’s comments regarding two Georgia election workers who were captured on surveillance video at the State Farm Arena tabulation center during the 2020 election night.

During a Georgia Senate hearing in December 2020, video footage was shown alleging that the election workers had scanned ballots without a state monitor present.

Judge Beryl Howell unilaterally found Rudy Giuliani guilty of defamation after he failed to submit his financial statement on time for the lawfare case.

In a recent DC courtroom trial, a jury determined that Giuliani should pay $148 million to the two plaintiffs.

Unfortunately, Giuliani was not permitted to present any evidence in his defense during the court proceedings.
