Rudy Giuliani LOSES defamation case against Georgia election workers: Another blow to the US mayor as he must pay huge damages — and pay $89,000 in legal fees

  • A judge ruled that Rudy Giuliani must pay fines in the defamation case
  • Originates from comments about a mother-daughter duo of election workers in Georgia in the 2020 cycle
  • Giuliani also faces legal fees related to the charges against him in the election subversion case in Fulton County, Georgia

Rudy Giuliani is ordered to pay fines in a defamation case in which he made comments about two Georgia election officials.

The fines are sanctions from Judge Beryl Howell against former President Donald Trump’s attorney for failing to hand over electronic data in the defamation case.

The ruling allows the case to move forward to trial in federal court in Washington to determine any damages Giuliani must pay. It’s unclear how much he’ll have to pay, but the fines could be as high as $90,000.

In the meantime, Howell said, Giuliani and his business entities will have to pay more than $130,000 in attorneys’ fees and other expenses.

Wandrea “Shaye” Moss and her mother Ruby Freeman, both Georgia election workers in the 2020 cycle, demanded records in their defamation suit against Giuliani. The case stems from their allegations against Giuliani for spreading false claims of electoral fraud following the 2020 presidential election.

Giuliani previously admitted his statements were false to Moss and Freeman, who claim their reputations were damaged by the comments.

Howell says Giuliani will have one “last chance” to provide the requested information before the discovery of the case or face additional sanctions.

The former New York mayor faces a civil suit in Washington, D.C. federal court to determine how much to surrender in the defamation case.

Giuliani faces a barrage of legal fees, including a $20,000 monthly fee to a company hosting his electronic documents. Trump’s former attorney is one of 18 co-defendants indicted along with the ex-president in Fulton County over the plan to illegally overturn Georgia’s 2020 election results.

He turned himself over to authorities at the Fulton County Jail last week and was arrested. His mugshot was released along with his 17 co-defendants and Trump.

Moss and Freeman’s December 2021 complaint accused Giuliani, one of Trump’s top confidants, of defaming them by falsely claiming they had engaged in fraud while counting the ballots at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena , Georgia after the 2020 election.
