The Ruling Suspending Rudy Giuliani's Law License Is Kind of Hilarious

*snip*

In cataloguing Giuliani’s transgressions, the filing reads as a bemused and indignant greatest hits of Trump 2020 election lies, along with point-by-point refutations and comically timed footnotes. With every other sentence, the judges are almost shouting at the reader get a load of the nerve on this guy!

*snip*

Here are some of the most ridiculous of Giuliani’s suspension-worthy antics, as documented by the five-judge committee:
The judges write: Respondent repeatedly stated that in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania more absentee ballots came in during the election than were sent out before the election.

Giuliani didn’t actually contest that the statement was false, as the judges note, but said he didn’t make the false statements “knowingly.” The judges dismantle this defense:

Respondent claims that he relied on some unidentified member of his “team” who “inadvertently” took the information from the Pennsylvania website, which had the information mistakenly listed (Giuliani affidavit ¶49) There is simply no proof to support this explanation. For instance, there is no affidavit from this supposed team member who is not identified by name or otherwise, nor is there any copy of the web page that purportedly listed the allegedly incorrect data.

1. It is. Here's a link to the order itself; it's worth a read.

6. It could, indeed. More importantly, there are a bunch of judges

who think the same thing.

2. I guess the reason the court thought

Him a continuing threat to the public and thus worthy of immediate suspension was that he continued to tell these egregious lies on his radio show even after the bar complaints had been filed. Is that what they call in NYC 'chutzpah'?

3. Blame the secretary (or the paralegal, or the newly-minted attorney)

Sorry Rudy, but you know as well as any lawyer that when you sign the pleading, whatever's in it is yours, not what some member of your team inadvertently stuck in there.

Not only are you a weasel, you're a coward as well.

4. I think a lot of lawyers watching Rudy perform figured

It was going to end in disaster. They knew the rules. You can't just make claims in or out of court without a reasonable investigation of their merit. I don't think the court even got into the Dominion voting lunacy. Rudy never brought a fraud case into court. But he had to know that spouting falsehoods out of court could subject him to bar discipline. It's almost as though he had a death wish. And then to get stiffed by the client to boot. It was like watching a train wreck.
