Center for Business Law’s Eric Chaffee weighs in on Rudy Giuliani defamation case

Rudy Giuliani could face yet another court battle

NewsweekEric Chaffee, the Peter M. Gerhart Distinguished Research Scholar and associate director of the Center for Business Law, said the two Georgia election workers who sued Rudy Giuliani for defamation—and won—may face another court battle to get their money. “During the bankruptcy process, a court will consider which of his debts should be discharged and what, if anything, creditors will receive,” he said. “There is some question as to whether the $148 million judgment against him is dischargeable, and that will have to be litigated in court.”
