Judge rejecys Guiliani defamation verdictA federal judge on Monday rejected an effort by Rudy Giuliani to reverse the jury’s verdict in a defamation suit against him, requiring the former personal attorney to Donald Trump to pay the $146 million judgment to two Georgia election workers he’d falsely accused of election fraud.

In a 48-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell said that Giuliani’s attempt to get his verdict overturned was based on “threadbare” arguments and “falls well short of persuading that ‘the evidence and all reasonable inferences that can be drawn therefrom are so one-sided that reasonable men and women could not have reached a verdict in [Giuliani’s] favor.’”

In December, a jury in Washington, D.C., awarded a total of $148 million to Ruby Freeman and her daughter Shaye Moss after Giuliani was found liable for defamation earlier that year for spreading lies that the two women committed election fraud while they were counting ballots in Georgia’s Fulton County after the 2020 election. The two Black women sued him in 2021, saying the former New York City mayor “orchestrated a sustained smear campaign” that resulted in racist threats and harassment.
