On Friday, a Georgia court ruled against Rudy Giuliani in a defamation case brought by two poll workers. The women, Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss won a $148 million suit against the former New York City Mayor.
At one time, Rudy Giuliani was a wealthy man. But years of court cases have left the man in bad financial straits. During an appearance on MSNBC, legal expert Lisa Rubin explained how the plaintiffs could still try to get money from Giuliani.
She began, "There was a period of time where Rudy Giuliani, in the post-9/11 world, was commanding really big sums in his consulting practice, as a private lawyer. Those days are over. One of the reasons most people think Rudy Giuliani was so desperate to be Donald Trump's lawyer was in fact because that gravy train had largely stopped."
"Rudy Giuliani has a $6.1 million apartment here in the city on the market. Even if they can sustain this verdict on appeal and collect every penny of that apartment, one of the things we don't know is what kind of other assets Rudy has. Why don't we know it? He refused to cooperate in discovery."
The legal expert closed, "There's going to have to be a lot of chasing of Rudy and his assets to see if he can play the shell game. Ultimately, I think it will catch up to him, but not to this is stratospheric numbers we are seeing tonight."
