Judge Dismisses Giuliani’s Bankruptcy Case
Quick Glance: New York Judge Dismisses Rudy Giuliani's Bankruptcy Case
  • A federal judge in New York on Friday threw out Rudy Giuliani’s bankruptcy case, paving the way for a litany of creditors, including two former Georgia election workers who won a $148 million defamation claim against him, to pursue and potentially seize his assets.

  • The decision by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane in the Southern District of New York comes nearly seven months after Giuliani sought bankruptcy protection after he was ordered to immediately pay millions in damages to Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, two Georgia women he falsely accused of helping to steal the 2020 presidential election.

  • In his 22-page order, Lane cited Giuliani’s “continued failure to meet his reporting obligations and provide the financial transparency required of a debtor in possession” and called his behavior “troubling.” It restricts Giuliani from seeking bankruptcy protection for one year.

  • The decision allows creditors, including Freeman, Moss, and others, to pursue legal remedies to collect money owed to them by Giuliani. It also enables the continuation of lawsuits against Giuliani, including defamation suits by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic and a sexual harassment claim by former Giuliani associate Nicole Dunphy.

Photo appears to show bullet as it flew past Trump
Quick Glance: Photo Reveals Alleged Bullet Path in Assassination Attempt
  • A photo by Doug Mills, a photographer for The New York Times, appears to capture a bullet streaking past former President Donald J. Trump.

  • Michael Harrigan, a retired F.B.I. special agent, confirmed the possibility that the image shows the displacement of air caused by a projectile.

  • The speed of the bullet from the firearm and the extremely fast shutter speed of the camera make it unlikely for such an image to be captured by chance.

  • Experts evaluate the photo as an extremely rare and nearly impossible snapshot showing the trajectory of a bullet sideways.
