Rudy Giuliani is ordered to fork over fines in a defamation case involving his comments about two Georgia election workers.

The fines are sanctions from Judge Beryl Howell against former President Donald Trump‘s lawyer for failing to turn over electronic records in the defamation case.

The ruling enables the case to move forward to a trial in federal court in Washington to determine any damages that Giuliani must pay. It’s unclear how much he will have to pay, but the fines could reach nearly $90,000.

In the meantime, Howell said, Giuliani and his business entities will need to pay more than $130,000 in attorneys’ fees and other costs.

Wandrea ‘Shaye’ Moss and her mother Ruby Freeman, both Georgia election workers in the 2020 cycle, demanded records in their defamation case against Giuliani. The case stems from their allegations against Giuliani for spreading false vote-rigging claims about them following the 2020 presidential election.

Giuliani admitted previously that his statements were false against Moss and Freeman, who claim their reputations were damaged by the remarks.

Howell says Giuliani will have one ‘final opportunity’ to produce the requested information for the case’s discovery or else face additional sanctions. 

The former New York Mayor is facing a civil trial in Washington, D.C. federal court to determine how much he will need to hand over in the defamation case.

Giuliani is facing a barrage of legal costs, including a $20,000 monthly fee to a company hosting his electronic records. Trump’s former attorney is one of the 18 co-defendants charged with the ex-President in Fulton County for the scheme to illegally overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia.

He turned himself over to authorities at Fulton County Jail last week and was booked. His mug shot was released along with his 17 co-defendants and Trump.

Moss and Freeman’s complaint from December 2021 accused Giuliani, one of Trump’s top confidants, of defaming them by falsely claiming they engaged in fraud while counting ballots at State Farm Arena in Atlanta, Georgia following the 2020 election.
