Rudy Giuliani arrived ten minutes after the expected time for the defamation suit filed by Georgia election workers, Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss. He has made claims that Freeman and Moss were part of a plot to rig the 2020 Presidential election and manipulated the voting machines. Giuliani has been proven to have defamed Freeman and Moss and the case is being presided by U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell.
According to the plaintiffs, they have received threatening messages after Giuliani began making these false statements about them. The defense argued that the damages being sought were excessive. Giuliani did not express any regret about his actions.
Expert witnesses have confirmed that there is no evidence of fraud related to Freeman and Moss. Moss appeared in court and described the impact of the defamatory claims made against her by Giuliani. She spoke about the emotional distress and harm that she had experienced. Giuliani has not apologized to Freeman and Moss.
In response to these comments, Giuliani was heard making accusations during a recess and stating that they were lying. This statement could lead to another defamation claim against him. Moss mentioned that she did not want to see what Giuliani had said about her after the court session.
