MANHATTAN — FORMER NYC MAYOR RUDOLPH W. GIULIANI HAS BEEN DISBARRED IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK after a court found he repeatedly made false statements about Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss. A New York appeals court in Manhattan ruled on Tuesday, July 2, that Giuliani be “disbarred from the practice of law, effective immediately, and until the further order of this Court, and his name stricken from the roll of attorneys and counselors-at-law in the State of New York.” The state bar association disbars an attorney after determining they are unfit to continue practicing law. This usually happens after judges, fellow lawyers or clients have lodged complaints about the lawyer’s behavior. The former mayor’s license to practice law was suspended in 2021. Giuliani, who served for a while as Trump’s attorney, became the former president’s primary mouthpiece for Trump’s false claims of election fraud, calling the 306-232 electoral vote count and a 4-point lead in the popular vote against him to be part of a Democrat conspiracy.

Before being elected mayor in 1993, Giuliani had served as a federal prosecutor. He served two mayoral terms until 2001, when (being term-limited) he talked about postponing elections in the aftermath of the September 11 terror attacks, believing that the city needed him to stay in power.
