Rudy Giuliani Ordered To Pay $148M For Defaming Georgia Election Workers

Giuliani called the decision ‘absurd’ and told reporters he would appeal.

WASHINGTON — Rudy Giuliani has been ordered to pay nearly $150 million in damages to a pair of Georgia election workers he falsely accused of fraud, a jury decided Friday.

A jury decided that the disgraced lawyer must also pay Wandrea “Shaye” Moss and Ruby Freeman up to $16 million in compensatory damages, $20 million for intentional infliction of emotional distress as well as $75 million in punitive damages.

Giuliani looked at the jurors while the verdict was being read and showed no emotion.

“Today’s a good day. A jury stood witness to what Rudy Giuliani did to me and my daughter and held him accountable and for that I’m thankful,” Freeman said.

“The lies Rudy Giuliani told about me and my mommy after the 2020 presidential election have changed our lives and the past few years has been devastating,” Moss said.

“We’re very grateful to the jury for taking the time out of their busy lives to do their civic duty to listen to everything that we’ve been going through,” she added.

Moss and Freeman took the stand in the civil trial, detailing the threatening messages and racist insults they received as a result of Giuliani’s lies. Some of these included the pair committing election fraud and inserting a USB drive into voting machines.

Giuliani called the decision “absurd” and told reporters he would appeal.

“I didn’t testify because the judge made it clear that if I made any mistake or did anything wrong, she was considering contempt,” Giuliani said.

“I have no doubt that my comments were made and they were supportable and supportable today. I just did not have an opportunity to present the evidence that we offered,” he said.
