New York Supreme Court’s appellate division ruled Thursday to suspend Rudy Giuliani from practicing law for claiming that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from Donald Trump. This month marks the 52nd anniversary since Giuliani began practicing law in the state.

According to the ruling, Giuliani violated New York’s “Rules of Professional Conduct” when he “communicated demonstrably false and misleading statements to courts, lawmakers and the public.”

“These false statements were made to improperly bolster (Giuliani’s) narrative that due to widespread voter fraud, victory in the 2020 United States presidential election was stolen from his client,” the court wrote. “We conclude that respondent’s conduct immediately threatens the public interest and warrants interim suspension from the practice of law.”

However, the former New York City mayor is only suspended “pending further proceedings before the Attorney Grievance Committee.” It is unclear what Giuliani’s next move is, as he and his team have responded to requests for comment.
