https://www.rawstory.com/rudy-giuliani- ... for-court/U.S. District Court Judge Beryl Howell rebuked an attorney for Rudy Giuliani after his client failed to attend a hearing in his defamation case.
Politico's Kyle Cheney reported that Giuliani declined to attend a Tuesday hearing ahead of a jury trial to determine how much he will have to pay two Georgia election workers — Ruby Freeman and Wandrea "Shaye" Moss — after he was found liable for defaming them.
"Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss were in court in D.C. for what could have been their first pretrial confrontation with Rudy Giuliani as part of their defamation suit," Cheney reported. "But Rudy didn't show, and his attorney got a lashing from Judge Howell for the absence."
Howell has ordered a jury trial to begin next week.
"Giuliani's position that the long-standing jury demand in this case was extinguished when he was found liable on plaintiffs' claims by default, is wrong as a matter of law," Howell wrote in a filing this week.
