Rudy Giuliani's law license has been suspended.
In a ruling handed down by the New York State Supreme Court Thursday, the state's Attorney Grievance Committee successfully moved to have the former New York mayor's license suspended. Specifically, Giuliani's actions related to his defense of former President Donald Trump were to blame, according to the court.
"We conclude that there is uncontroverted evidence that respondent communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump's failed effort at reelection in 2020," the court found. "These false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent's narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client. We conclude that respondent's conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law."
Among the violations the court cited was Giuliani's repeated false claim of voter fraud in Pennsylvania.
