Rudy Giuliani has had his world turned upside down in the last several months due to his defense of President Donald Trump.
One of the worst blows to Giuliani recently occurred, as he had his law license suspended in New York.
Giuliani claims that the suspension was given without due process.
He expressed his dissapointment in the decision, stating:
“America is not America any longer.”
He’s also not the only one who believes as such.
Alan Dershowitz explained why the suspension should not be upheld, given the lack of due process.
The news of Giuliani's suspension was announced on Thursday.
One America News Network has more on the suspension, which was given without due process:
Rudy Giuliani, the former personal lawyer to President Trump, criticized a New York state appeals court decision to suspend his law license. On Thursday, a the court ruled Giuliani has made “false and misleading statements” regarding voter fraud while defending the 45th president in several swing states after the 2020 election.
While speaking to reporters, Giuliani questioned how the court asserted he lied if he has yet to receive an official hearing.
“If you wanna say I said something irresponsible, you gotta give me a chance to defend myself,” he stated. “I can more than defend myself. I can show that everything I said was based on a witness. They have never bothered to check that.”
Giuliani Spoke to Newsmax About the Suspension
Acccording to Alan Dershowitz, the suspension should not stand, as Giuliani was not allowed due process.
Newsmax has that story:
Giuliani's license to practice law in New York was suspended after a state appeals court claimed this past week he lied in arguing the 2020 presidential election was stolen from his client, former President Donald Trump.
The court claimed Giuliani had made several false statements about voting in Georgia, Arizona, and Pennsylvania, highlighting a court hearing in Pennsylvania where the former New York City mayor alleged there was widespread voter fraud but had not mentioned it in his former written complaint.
"I taught legal ethics for 35 years at Harvard," Dershowitz added. "I've never seen a case like this."
Meanwhile, Giuliani did not have a hearing or an opportunity to prove whether or not he had told the truth, or if he knew that he was lying, Dershowitz told host Carl Higbie.
The ruling against Giuliani's law license might stand in the New York courts, which means that it could end up being decided in the Supreme Court, according to Dershowitz.
Still, Dershowitz said he thinks, after there is a hearing, it will be much harder to make Giuliani's suspension stand.
"The criteria is so vague," said Dershowitz, noting the court not only ruled against Giuliani for his "misstatements" in courts but also for his comments to the media.
"If you start holding lawyers responsible for everything, they said, my God, I can tell you myself and my own experience: Many, many lawyers who have committed much, much worse lies in the public domain, and they don't go after them," Dershowitz said. "This is a very selective department."
President Trump also chimed in on the suspension.
