Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor and personal attorney to Donald Trump, finds himself ensnared in a legal quagmire yet again that could significantly impact his standing as he grapples with a multitude of judicial challenges.

Giuliani is facing a criminal indictment in Georgia and defamation suits filed by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic. However, the most pressing matter for Giuliani is the defamation lawsuit brought by Atlanta poll workers Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss. The workers have endured years of harassment and threats following Giuliani’s false accusations of them counting fraudulent ballots for Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

In a recent development, Judge Beryl Howell granted default to the plaintiffs but gave Giuliani a final opportunity to comply with discovery or face additional sanctions. The court demanded information about Giuliani’s podcast ownership, viewer metrics, personal finances, and a hefty sum of $143,000 in attorney’s fees.

The court offered Giuliani a choice between cooperation and a more lenient jury instruction or continued non-compliance and a harsher instruction. Naturally, Giuliani chose door number two.

Freeman and Moss reported receiving no productions or payments from Giuliani, prompting them to request adverse jury instructions and immediate authorization to seize his assets outside of DC.

While the court denied the asset seizure, it granted the requested jury instructions. Now, the jury will be informed that Giuliani intentionally concealed relevant evidence to shield his assets and deflate his net worth. Furthermore, Giuliani is precluded from arguing insolvency or inability to defend himself, essentially banning him from presenting a defense at the trial and leaving him in a precarious position just eight weeks before proceedings commence.
