Rudy Giuliani, the former personal lawyer for former President Donald Trump, has been suspended from practicing law in New York state.

In a ruling released Thursday following disciplinary proceedings, a New York appellate court concluded 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.

“It’s a stunning turn for the former New York City mayor who was once a former prosecutor for the Southern District of New York.

Giuliani did not immediately respond to CNN’s requests for comment.

Giuliani — or lawyers representing him — is set to be in court in DC Thursday afternoon over a defamation lawsuit from the vote management company Dominion Voting Systems, which is suing Giuliani and others for statements they made alleging election fraud.
