Rudy Giuliani Found Liable in Defamation Lawsuit Brought by Georgia Election Workers

HeadlineAug 31, 2023

A federal judge found Rudy Giuliani liable in a defamation lawsuit brought by two Georgia election workers, after the disgraced Trump lawyer failed to turn over information sought in subpoenas. Giuliani accused Ruby Freeman and her daughter Shaye Moss of committing fraud as they tallied ballots in Atlanta during the 2020 election. It was part of the Trump team’s effort to overturn the former president’s loss in Georgia. Wednesday’s ruling means the defamation case against Giuliani can proceed to a trial, where damages will be considered.
