Giuliani files for bankruptcy

Former New York Mayor Giuliani is bankrupt. According to court documents, former President Trump’s confidant filed for bankruptcy after two election workers filed a million-dollar libel lawsuit against him.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has filed for bankruptcy. This emerges from a published court document.

The 79-year-old ally of former President Donald Trump was sentenced last week to pay damages of around $148 million (around 143 million euros) because he falsely claimed after the 2020 presidential election that aides had written ballot papers for Trump thrown away and counted fake slips for Democrat Joe Biden.

Giuliani filed for protection from creditors, according to the document he filed. In it he lists liabilities of up to 500 million dollars (455 million euros) and assets of one to ten million dollars. Giuliani cites the largest of his debts as the approximately $148 million that he was ordered to pay by a jury in a federal court in Washington.

Successful lawsuit by two election workers

The two election workers Ruby Freeman and her daughter Shaye Moss sued in the state of Georgia. Both women received national attention last year when they testified before the Congressional Committee investigating the Capitol attack. People threatened her and wished her death, Moss said.

The two women accused Giuliani that his claims had destroyed their reputation and led to numerous threats, including racist ones, against them. A jury in Washington found them right.
