Rudy Giuliani’s license to practice law in New York has been suspended.
Rudy Giuliani’s license to practice law in New York has been revoked.
After a petition was filed by the Attorney Grievances Committee (AGC) for the First Judicial Department, the Supreme Court of the State of New York ordered Giuliani to cease and desist from practicing law in any form “until such time as disciplinary matters pending before the Committee have been concluded.”
Due to his involvement in a series of election lawsuits filed on behalf of former President Donald Trump’s campaign to reverse the results of the 2020 election, the AGC was aiming to strip Giuliani of his status to practice law.
The court ruled in favor of AGC on Thursday, finding that “there is undisputed evidence that respondent communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers, and the general public in his capacity as a lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed reelection bid in 2020.”
The judgement stated, “These false assertions were intended to unfairly bolster respondent’s narrative that victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was snatched from his client owing to widespread voter fraud.”
On June 25, 1969, Giuliani was admitted to practice law in New York, and he now has an office in the First Judicial Department.
