Following a court order mandating the payment of $217 million in defamation damages, Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor, and attorney, has filed for bankruptcy.

Days after being ordered to pay $217 million to two former Georgia election workers for false accusations of fraud following Donald Trump’s 2020 election loss, Rudy Giuliani, once hailed as “America’s mayor” for his post-9/11 leadership in New York, has filed for bankruptcy. Giuliani, no longer serving as Trump’s lawyer, is burdened with debts stemming from his legal work for the former president and faces criminal charges in Georgia. In his filing with the US Bankruptcy Court in New York, Giuliani revealed liabilities ranging from $100 million to $500 million and assets between $1 million and $10 million. A spokesperson for Giuliani stated that the bankruptcy filing allows him time to appeal the $148 million penalty and ensures fair treatment of other creditors.
