Giuliani Suspended from D.C. Bar Following New York Suspension

WASHINGTON, D.C. — On Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani was suspended from practicing law in the District of Columbia following a recent suspension from the New York Bar due to his role in promoting false and misleading legal statements in an attempt to overturn the 2020 election. A proceeding regarding Giuliani being conducted by the D.C. Bar has been stayed pending the resolution of the New York Bar proceedings.

Giuliani was suspended from practicing in New York in June after a committee found that “there is uncontroverted evidence that [Giuliani] communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public at large in his capacity as lawyer for former President Donald J. Trump and the Trump campaign in connection with Trump’s failed effort at reelection in 2020.” The committee determined that Giuliani’s conduct “immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law.”
