NY: Giuliani Permanently Disbarred

Source: Common Dreams

“Rudy Giuliani, one-time mayor of New York City, federal prosecutor, and attorney for former President Donald Trump, was permanently disbarred in New York state on Tuesday for lying about the 2020 presidential election being ‘stolen’ by Democrats. The New York Supreme Court’s Appellate Division unanimously disbarred Giulian, calling his propagation of Trump’s ‘Big Lie’ about 2020 election fraud a threat to the public interest and the legal profession. The panel found that Giuliani (whose law license was suspended in 2021) ‘flagrantly misused his prominent position as the personal attorney for former President Trump and his campaign’ and ‘repeatedly and intentionally made false statements, some of which were perjurious, to the federal court, state lawmakers, the public … and this court concerning the 2020 presidential election, in which he baselessly attacked and undermined the integrity of this country’s electoral process.'” (07/02/24)
