How much will Rudy Giuliani have to pay at his trial?

Rudy Giuliani is back in court to find out how much he’ll have to pay after being found liable for defamation and damaging the reputations of two Georgia election officials working to count votes in Fulton County during the 2020 U.S. presidential election.

This lawsuit is linked to unfounded allegations of electoral fraud during the presidential election, repeated on numerous occasions by Rudy Giuliani and aimed specifically at these two agents, which would have led to catastrophic consequences for them.

Ruby Freeman and Wandrea Moss, a mother and daughter, sued Mr. Giuliani for falsely accusing them of being involved in a fictitious election scam, leading the two women to suffer harassment, emotional distress and threats.

Among other things, Giuliani compared the two women to drug dealers exchanging USB drives containing illegal votes. In reality, the accusations were unfounded.

The plaintiffs in the case are seeking between $15 and $43 million for reputational damage alone. They are also seeking separate compensation for emotional distress, as well as punitive damages to deter future misconduct.

During the preliminary proceedings of his case, Rudy Giuliani had failed to present the requested documents and evidence, suffering a setback by default.

The trial is expected to last four days and will focus on compensation amounts.
