Bankruptcy Judge Allows Rudolph Giuliani to Challenge Defamation Verdict


Rudolph Giuliani, a former lawyer to Donald Trump, received approval from a U.S. bankruptcy judge on Tuesday to challenge a $148 million defamation verdict won by two former Georgia election workers. 

Giuliani was accused of falsely accusing them of fraud following Donald Trump’s election loss in 2020.

Limitations on Rudolph Giuliani Spending:

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane approved Giuliani’s request but restricted him from using his funds for further litigation. Instead, Giuliani is required to pay his attorneys using donations received by two legal defense funds.

Disclosure of Donors and Concerns:

Lane expressed concerns about the financial implications of continued litigation and demanded more transparency regarding Giuliani’s donors. 

Giuliani disclosed additional information, including donations from Elizabeth Ailes, widow of former Fox News CEO Roger Ailes.

Legal Battles and Bankruptcy Proceedings:

Giuliani faces numerous legal challenges, including lawsuits from Hunter Biden, Noelle Dunphy, and voting machine companies Dominion and Smartmatic. 

These cases have contributed to Giuliani’s filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Scope of Challenge and Potential Appeal:

While Giuliani can contest the size of the defamation verdict in Georgia, he cannot pursue a full appeal without further approval from the bankruptcy court. 

If he chooses to appeal, Giuliani must return to bankruptcy court for authorization.
