Giuliani Seeks Bankruptcy Protection

Former New York City Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani has filed for bankruptcy after a federal judge ordered him to pay $148 million in damages to two former Georgia election workers. The workers sued Giuliani for spreading false claims about the 2020 election, alleging that they had tried to steal the election from former President Donald J. Trump. The bankruptcy filing also revealed that Giuliani owes millions of dollars in legal fees and unpaid state and federal income taxes.

The judge overseeing the election worker case, Beryl A. Howell, expressed concerns that Giuliani might “conceal his assets” if he were allowed to wait the typical 30 days to start paying the damages. This led to the order for immediate payment.

In response to the bankruptcy filing, Giuliani’s political adviser, Ted Goodman, stated, “The filing should be a surprise to no one. No person could have reasonably believed that Mayor Rudy Giuliani would be able to pay such a high punitive amount. Chapter 11 will afford Mayor Giuliani the opportunity and time to pursue an appeal, while providing transparency for his finances under the supervision of the bankruptcy court, to ensure all creditors are treated equally and fairly throughout the process.”

Rudolph W. Giuliani’s career has been marked by high-profile cases and controversies, including his tenure as mayor during the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. He later gained attention as a lawyer for former President Trump, particularly for his attempts to challenge the results of the 2020 election.

Giuliani’s bankruptcy filing sheds light on the financial challenges he faces amid legal battles and tax obligations. This development marks a significant moment in the ongoing fallout from the 2020 election and its aftermath.
