In a late court filing on Tuesday evening, America’s
sleaze-bag Mayor Rudy Giuliani made significant concessions in the defamation case brought by Georgia election workers Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss.
In the two-page statement filed in a federal court, Giuliani said he “does not contest” that his statements, which fueled a torrent of public attacks on the two women, were “false” and “carry meaning that is defamatory.”
The filing also admits, albeit through a sea of legalese, that Giuliani’s statements meet the “factual elements of liability” for Moss and Freeman’s claims that his attacks amounted to “intentional infliction of emotional distress.”
Giuliani’s attorney, Joseph Sibley, emphasized in an accompanying filing that Giuliani was not in fact “admitting” to Moss and Freeman’s allegations against him but making a decision to stop contesting them, which he says should end the women’s effort to seek further factual evidence — emails, text messages and other communications — from Giuliani.
