Rudy Giuliani : lawyers call for Trump's personal attorney to lose law licence
Trump’s personal attorney, who led efforts to overturn election result, criticised for calling for ‘trial by combat’ before Capitol attack
Fri 22 Jan 2021 02.12 GMTA group of prominent lawyers has asked New York’s judiciary to suspend Rudy Giuliani’s law licence for making false claims in post-election lawsuits and urging Donald Trump’s supporters to engage in “trial by combat” shortly before they stormed the US Capitol.
Lawyers Defending American Democracy is also calling for investigation of Giuliani, who served as a federal prosecutor and a New York City mayor before Trump hired him as personal attorney.“This complaint is about law, not politics,” said their letter to the attorney grievance committee for the New York supreme court. It was signed by more than 40 lawyers.
Giuliani did not immediately respond to requests for comment.Read moreAttorneys not affiliated with the group, including a lawyer who defends other lawyers from ethics complaints, said the letter could have serious consequences for Giuliani.The grievance committee, part of New York state’s judiciary, has the power to censure and suspend lawyers and revoke their law licences. headtopics.com
Giuliani led the legal team that tried to overturn Trump’s election defeatbut failed to produce any evidence of widespread fraud. The team lost dozens of court cases in battleground states and at the supreme court, and Joe Biden’s victory was confirmed.
Criticisms of Giuliani escalated after the deadly 6 January attack on the Capitol by a pro-Trump mob. Shortly beforehand Trump told supporters to “fight like hell”. The letter to the disciplinary body cited Giuliani’s call at the same time for “trial by combat” and his false claims in court and in public of widespread voter fraud.
Attorney suspensions and disbarments were very unusual, said Brian Faughnan, a lawyer in Tennessee who defends other lawyers in ethics matters. But the letter laid out strong evidence against Giuliani and he may face a public reprimand.“If I got a complaint like that on behalf of a client, I would be worried,” he said.
Attorney disciplinary bodies typically did not publicly announce an investigation but would reveal any punishments they handed down, Faughnan said. Read more: The Guardian »
Myanmar: The killing of a protester on the bloodiest day since the military coup
A 22-year-old protester was killed by Burmese authorities on Wednesday in a brutal crackdown on demonstrators in the town of Myingyan.
azzamaghur That's the least of his problems. His most concerning issue is an ongoing investigation by the FBI to determine if his a Russian asset. The FBI wouldn't invest in this type of investigations unless they had a thread that would eventually lead them to an outcome THE SOONER THE BETTER!!!! THEN ARREST HIM,ARRAIN HIM HIM, HOLD A TRIAL AND INDITE HIM!!! THEN GIVE HIM A JAIL HOUSE SUIT AND FORGET HIM! IN THAT ORDER. HE AIN'T GOT TRUMP TO PARDON HIM NOW!!!
Welcome move Because you don't like his client? This is total crap barratry Looks like President O'Biden got his Unity answer from the people last night... Harry Hill ☝️ Nothing says 'democracy' like Blacklists and Show Trials ImpeachBidenNow Was it the lying, cheating, stealing or treason?🤔 FruityRudy
He has business practicing law in our decent Society, most of arguments sounds like he was Major In Customary Law in the 1600s! He doesn't know a thing about law. He's a liability, he'll be useless representing anyone and he will simply waste the time of everyone in the court system. So yes, he needs his licence stripping from him (if he ever had one in the first place, that is).
Pass2KstandaloneNOW Sidney Powell’s bar license too! 👍🤮😡 Even Giuliani becoming Assange ? WeAreAllAssange DropTheCharges He used to be an Attorney 🥺🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Couldn’t happen to a more deserving lawyer. W Polsce korporacje prawnicze też chcą pozbawiać prawników prawa wykonywania zawodu czyli licencji tylko za to że są po prawej stronie polityki lub mają prawicowe poglądy. Widze tendencja światowa, nowy porząde.k
Why not? He’s already lost his mind... and his hair dye! and send him to the Gulag? where are we? The witch-hunt continues! He is, perhaps, a bit loopy but strike him off for professional misconduct not because he has an alternative view! There comes a certain point at which you become too unaware to be licensed. Rudy passed that point awhile ago. Wish him better care than he’s been getting.

Wait lying on behalf of an egotistical sociopath in order to incite insurrection isn't OK? Rudy has gone full tutti fruiti when he had his press briefing in front of the sex shop. Is he really a lawyer? Like really 🤡 wow IKR 👊🏻
