In a recent legal development, Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York City, has been directed to pay a substantial amount of $148 million to two former election workers from Georgia. These individuals were accused by Giuliani of engaging in ballot manipulation during the 2020 election.

Ruby Freeman and her daughter, Shaye Moss, who were previously employed as election workers, filed a lawsuit against a Republican individual, alleging defamation. They claimed that the individual's statements had resulted in various forms of harassment directed towards them. According to a report by Politico, the jury reached a decision regarding the compensation for the plaintiffs in a defamation case. It was determined that each plaintiff should receive $16 million for defamation, $20 million for emotional distress, and an additional $75 million in punitive damages.


Giuliani was a vocal proponent of former President Donald Trump's claims that mass election fraud affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential contest. In the case, U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell determined that Giuliani was liable. The jury's responsibility now is to determine the amount of damages.

In August, a ruling was issued by Howell that strongly criticized Giuliani for his failure to provide the necessary evidence in the case. This failure ultimately led to Giuliani's legal defeat by default. In July, the Republican received a warning regarding the potential consequences of not providing the necessary materials.
