New York’s Appellate Court Sends A Message to Rudy Giuliani: You’re Suspended from Practicing Law



Rudy Giuliani has been suspended from practicing law in New York.

The Appellate Court  found he had lied in arguing that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from his client, former U.S. President Donald Trump.

According to Reuters:

The Appellate Division in Manhattan said there was “uncontroverted” evidence that Giuliani “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public” in connection with Trump’s effort to overturn the election’s result.

“These false statements were made to improperly bolster (Giuliani’s) narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client,” the court said. “We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law.”

The interim suspension takes effect immediately, pending further proceedings before an attorney grievance committee.
