Former Election Workers Sue Rudy Giuliani Again After Winning $148 Million Defamation Suit

HeadlineDec 19, 2023

In Georgia, the former election workers, African Americans Ruby Freeman and her daughter Shaye Moss have sued Trump’s former attorney Rudy Giuliani for a second time. On Friday, a federal jury ordered Giuliani to pay Freeman and Moss $148 million in damages after he falsely accused them of tampering with ballots during the 2020 election, leading to harassment and death threats from Trump supporters. Their new lawsuit seeks a court order permanently barring Giuliani from defaming them again.

Meanwhile, a federal appeals court panel has rejected a bid by Trump’s former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to have an election interference case against him in Georgia moved to federal court.
