Judge rips Guiliani lawyer

Rudy Giuliani failed to appear at a Tuesday hearing ahead of his defamation trial, resulting in his lawyer receiving a tongue-lashing from the Washington, D.C., federal judge overseeing the case.

U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell harshly questioned lawyer Joseph Sibley over Giuliani’s unexpected absence and whether they were ready for the trial set for next week, which will determine how much money Giuliani owes two Georgia poll workers for defaming them after the 2020 election.

Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss sued Giuliani, a close ally of former President Trump and the ex-mayor of New York, after he made a series of false statements about their work at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta, where ballots were being counted. He and other Trump allies falsely claimed the election workers — a mother-daughter duo — committed fraud by processing “suitcases” of illicit ballots. The poll workers were both present in court in Washington on Tuesday.
