This is a follow-up to a previous News Views discussion featured nearly a year ago:
For the second time this week, a lawsuit has been filed against ‘America’s Mayor,‘ Rudolph Giuliani.
While campaigning with his son, Andrew, at a Staten Island ShopRite, Giuliani claimed an employee came out of nowhere and open-handedly slapped the disgraced, former mayor. The alleged incident landed the store worker in jail overnight on charges that were quickly dismissed.
Now, Daniel Gill’s has filed suit in Manhattan Federal Court demanding “$2 million from Giuliani for colluding with the NYPD to throw him behind bars on a false charge of assaulting an elderly person after he patted him on the back and called him a ‘scumbag.’”
Gill’s suit opens with a quote from Mayor Adams, who criticized Giuliani in the incident’s aftermath for handling the incident irresponsibly.
Ghouliani’s spokesperson, Ted Goodman, stated the case lacks legal merit and should be dismissed.
