On Wednesday, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals barred Rudy Giuliani from practising law in Washington, D.C.
The suspension from the appeals court was triggered automatically after he was suspended from practicing law in the state of New York last month.
The court said Giuliani would be suspended from working as an attorney in Washington, D.C., pending the outcome of a full formal disciplinary hearing on the New York suspension.
Bar records showed that Giuliani was an inactive member of the District of Columbia bar in good standing, at the time of Wednesday’s suspension.
After determining that Giuliani made “demonstrably false and misleading” remarks regarding fraud during the 2020 elections while acting as a counsel for former President Donald Trump, the New York state appeal court sought to revoke Giuliani’s licence.
The New York court highlighted many instances of Giuliani’s wrongdoing and misstatements in its judgement, which came amid a string of lawsuits brought by Trump after losing the election in battleground states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada, and Georgia.
In response, Giuliani stated that because the legal proceedings related to the election were finished, he would not be making any remarks on the election as an attorney.
