“Donald Trump’s former lawyer Rudy Giuliani is being sued for sexual harassment by a former employee. Noelle Dunphy alleges in the $10m (£8m) civil case that he coerced her into sex acts and launched into ‘alcohol-drenched’ and racist rants at work. The lawsuit claims he exposed himself, took Viagra ‘constantly’ and told Ms Dunphy satisfying his sexual demands was a job requirement. Mr Giuliani ‘vehemently’ denied the allegations through a spokesperson. Ms Dunphy, who says she was hired by Mr Giuliani’s firm in 2019 when he was working as Mr Trump’s personal lawyer, filed the legal case in New York state on Monday. The lawsuit, which sets out her allegations in graphic detail, says Mr Giuliani began to abuse her almost immediately after she was hired. It says the former New York City mayor coerced Ms Dunphy into giving him oral sex ‘against her will’ in his flat.” (05/16/23)
