On Wednesday, a federal judge in Washington, D.C. issued a default judgment against former Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani in a lawsuit filed by two Georgia election workers. Judge Beryl Howell sanctioned Giuliani for failing to comply with demands for documents and other evidence sought in the civil conspiracy case.
The suit was filed by two election workers, Rudy Freeman and Wandrea’ ArShaye Moss, in response to Giuliani’s accusations that they mishandled ballots during the 2020 presidential election. In a two-week-old indictment, Giuliani and former President Donald Trump were charged with a conspiracy to illegally overturn Trump’s loss in 2020 to President Joe Biden.
In the ruling, Judge Beryl Howell also ordered both parties to offer three possible dates for trial related to compensatory and punitive damages. Giuliani, Trump, and 17 co-defendants were all named in the indictment.
The judge’s decision comes as President Trump has been indicted a fourth time which includes a case in Georgia with several co-defendents one of them being Giuliani.
The attacks on Guiliana don’t just stem from what took place in November 2020, remember he was the first person to really expose Hunter Biden’s current legal issues.

“I am very, very honored to be involved in this case because this case is a fight for our way of life,” Giuliani, 79 told reporters. “This indictment is a travesty. It’s an attack on — not just me, not just President Trump, not just the people in this indictment, some of whom I don’t even know – this is an attack on the American people.”
Following Giuliani’s surrender, former President Trump wrote, “The greatest Mayor in the history of New York City was just ARRESTED in Atlanta, Georgia, because he fought for Election Integrity.”
