Rudy Giuliani’s law license has been suspended in DC

WASHINGTON / CNN — Rudy Giuliani is no longer allowed to practice law in Washington, DC, after he temporarily lost his license in New York for pushing election lies.

The appeals court in DC said Giuliani would be suspended from working as an attorney in the city “pending outcome” of his situation in New York, disciplinary court records show.

Giuliani doesn’t regularly practice law in court — and hadn’t for several years before representing President Donald Trump in 2020 in a failed legal bid to throw out the popular vote in Pennsylvania and other states.

The law license suspension is still a major blow to the former Manhattan US attorney and political figure, once considered an accomplished and formidable force in legal circles.

CNN reached out to Giuliani and is waiting to hear back.

When the New York appellate court temporarily suspended Giuliani’s law license, it said in its ruling that it found “there is uncontroverted evidence” that Giuliani “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at reelection in 2020.”

Giuliani’s “conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law,” the court wrote.

The former New York City mayor argued that his comments weren’t a threat to the public, telling Newsmax: “I made all those statements — not a single one of them led to a protest, a riot, an incident, an anything.”

The NY appellate court wrote that Guiliani’s “false statements were made to improperly bolster respondent’s narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client.”

The court said it relied on Guiliani’s statements at news conferences, state legislative hearings, and on TV appearances, radio broadcasts, and podcasts, as well as in one court appearance.

Although Guiliani told the court he would refrain from making further statements about the election in his capacity as a lawyer, the court found that he had continued to make false statements.
