Noelle Dunphy, former staffer of Rudy Giuliani, has dropped a $10 million lawsuit against her former boss, with various graphic allegations of sexual harassment and rape, along with personal text messages.
Dunphy accuses Giuliani of sexual assault, battery, gender discrimination and harassment, fostering a hostile work environment, retaliation, breach of contract, and violations of state labor laws.
Dunphy filed a summons in January, the first phase of the process, but a 70-page filing was dropped today to the New York Supreme Court, and included accusations that Giuliani forced her to have oral sex and intercourse, details of his alleged sexual preferences, and the revelation that Dunphy recorded some of their interactions.
Dunphy says Giuliani hired her for “business development work” in 2019, didn’t pay her what she was promised, and then fired her in 2021.
According to the complaint, Giuliani “forced” Dunphy to perform oral sex and “demanded” it while he took phone calls on speaker phone from clients and friends, including former President Donald Trump. He allegedly told Dunphy he “enjoyed engaging in this conduct while on the telephone because it made him “feel like Bill Clinton.”
Dunphy’s complaint says Giuliani “took Viagra constantly” while the two were working together, and would sometimes “point to his erect penis, and tell Dunphy that he could not do any work until ‘you take care of this.’”
The suit alleges that Giuliani made sexist, racist, and antisemitic comments to Dunphy, saying Jewish men have smaller genitalia, that it’s time to “get over the Passover” because “it was like 3,000 years ago,” and that Black and Hispanic men hit women because “it is in their culture.” The complaint says he also made comments that “demeaned and sexualized” Hillary Clinton and Margaret Thatcher.
Giuliani also “often demanded that she work naked, in a bikini, or in short shorts with an American flag on them that he bought for her,” the lawsuit alleges.
When they were physically apart and working by teleconference, Giuliani almost always asked her to remove her clothes.
“He often called from his bed, where he was visibly touching himself under a white sheet.”
“I think of you as my daughter,” Giuliani once told her while engaging in sexual contact with her, the lawsuit alleges. “Is that weird?” Giuliani allegedly added.
Dunphy claims Giuliani told her that he was able to “break the laws” because he had “immunity” and asked if she knew anyone in need of a pardon because he was selling them for $2 million.
Giuliani discussed selling presidential pardons for $2 million and splitting the money with Trump.
Dunphy said she continued to work for Giuliani despite being “shocked and saddened by what had happened” because she feared losing the $1 million salary he had promised as well as free legal representation he had also agreed to give her.
