Rudy Giuluani Can Appeal His $148 Million Defamation Verdict, But Not With His Money!!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Included in the maelstrom of Georgia DA Fani Willis venom, and oft forgotten, Rudy Giuluani also got caught up with 19 others which included Trump over the GA election.

The indictment is related to their efforts to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state.

While we may concern ourselves with Fani’s love life, Rudy went on to manage to snag a defamation verdict for remarks he made concerning a couple of election workers. But not any defamation, this is Fani’s GA, and for his remarks it cost him the pretty penny of $148 Million buckeroos. Knocked down from the original $246 Million award.

It’s easy to forget the other poor souls as Trump and Fani grab the headlines. I had thought Rudy had pretty much dead ended, and memories of his last public appearances were not stellar. But I have caught him on Steve Bannon’s War Room program and the old guy still has much of his “A” game. Which brings me to this story.

The following day after the defamation verdict, Rudy filed for bankruptcy. 

A refresher, August 15, 2023 

Screams the headline:

A look at the 19 people charged in the Georgia indictment connected to Trump election scheme

ATLANTA (AP) — Donald Trump and 18 other associates were charged Monday in Georgia as part of a sweeping indictment alleging they schemed to illegally overturn his 2020 election loss and stop the peaceful transition of power.

The indictment, brought by Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis, follows an investigation that lasted more than two years and marks the fourth criminal case brought against the former president.

Those charged in Monday’s indictment face a slew of charges, including racketeering, violating the oath of a public officer, forgery, false statements and other offenses. Prosecutors say they must all surrender to authorities by Aug. 25.

Now we learn Rudy can appeal the defamation verdict.


Now back to Rudy. And there are buts:

The Epoch Time Headline: 

Bankruptcy Judge Allows Rudy Giuliani to Appeal $148 Million Defamation Verdict

Well isn’t that swell. Let’s look at the small print.

“The judge specified that the legal fees must not be paid from Mr. Giuliani’s current assets.” Well, that sure reminds me of my post yesterday and  Attorney Turley’s remarks.

‘Fire Sale’ – Turley Talks About the Poison Pill the Judge Inserted in Trump Ruling

In Rudy’s case, there is no house to sell. So how does he appeal?

A New York bankruptcy judge has allowed Rudy Giuliani to appeal a $148 million defamation verdict so long as he uses pre-approved donors for legal expenses.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane, in his order on Tuesday, specified that such fees and expenses must not be paid from Mr. Giuliani’s current assets.

“Any fees and expenses incurred by the Debtor and his advisors in the Freeman Litigation in connection with any Post-Trial Filings and the Notice of Appeal shall not be paid by, and shall not result in a claim against, the Debtor or his estate,” Judge Lane wrote.

The former New York City mayor filed for bankruptcy protection late last year, one day after he was ordered to immediately pay $148 million to two former Georgia election workers. Ruby Freeman and her daughter, Wandrea Moss, sued him for defamation while he was working as a lawyer for former President Donald Trump.

In early January, Mr. Giuliani asked the New York bankruptcy judge overseeing his case to lift the automatic stay, a legal provision that pauses certain proceedings during bankruptcy, for the “limited purpose” of filing post-judgment motions to modify the judgment.

Judge Lane, from the Southern District of New York, granted the limited relief on Tuesday.

However, Judge Lane stated that the former mayor must obtain the judge’s consent for any external payment of legal fees and expenses, which can’t come from Mr. Giuliani’s current assets.

The multimillion-dollar payout the women were seeking would spell “the end” for Mr. Giuliani, his attorney, Joseph Sibley, told the court, equating it to be “the civil equivalent of a death penalty.”

One day after being ordered to pay $148 million to the Georgia election workers, Mr. Giuliani filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, listing $10 million in assets.

In a Dec. 20 ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Beryl Howell, an appointee of President Barack Obama, supported the two election workers’ claim that Mr. Giuliani lacked immediate financial means to pay them after a 30-day delay on the payouts was lifted.

Worse, the judge overseeing Rudy Giuliani’s bankruptcy proceeding has ordered the former New York City mayor to reveal every one of his donors that is paying his legal fees. Giuliani will also have to reveal how the money is being disbursed and what it is being used for in an itemized list. This is not good news for Rudy, as it could shame his donors to the point where they no longer wish to fund his legal problems, leaving him with no lawyers for the cases that he still faces. 

Long forgotten is how one man rode in on a white horse into New York City and brought it back from a sordid mess. Times Square with its charlatans and hookers, the halcyon days of the 1970’s. Oh, by the way, the perfect ending to this post:

Rudy deserves better.

So goes the swamp today.
