New York’s ruling therefore says that Giuliani may not practice law. The suspension of the former New York City mayor’s law license shall maintain at least until additional proceedings play out. The court also made clear that there’s a strong likelihood of the current suspension lasting permanently.
The statement from lawyers representing Giuliani
On Thursday, attorneys representing Giuliani criticized the ruling from the Appellate Division court in New York. In a statement made jointly, they refuted the court’s claim that Giuliani’s statements about the 2020 presidential election put “public interest” at risk.
Giuliani himself also argued that legal probes into his statements breach free speech rights; however, the New York court saw matters very differently and didn’t hesitate to make this known.
Former President Trump issued a statement yesterday as well. Trump branded the “radical left” as moving beyond their bounds; Trump also very clearly stated that Giuliani’s law license suspension should be overturned.
