Roughly a half an hour before a hearing in Rudy Giuliani’s bankruptcy on Wednesday, the debtor suddenly consented to the dismissal of the case, resulting in a bit of chaos and at times raised tensions on a Zoom call. At one point, Giuliani vehemently objected out of turn to commentary from a lawyer for defamed 2020 election workers Ruby Freeman and Shaye Moss, shouting that the attorney herself made “highly defamatory” remarks.

Law&Crime was listening in as lawyers for Giuliani, lawyers for Freeman and Moss, and lawyers for the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors each expressed their views to U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane on how the former NYC mayor’s Chapter 11 case should go from here.

The hearing was originally and mainly supposed to focus on Giuliani’s recent attempt to convert the case from a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization into a Chapter 7 liquidation of his assets, and on unsecured creditors’ insistence that a Chapter 11 trustee be appointed to take control of Giuliani’s assets, but before the hearing even began, the debtor filed a document consenting to the dismissal of his bankruptcy case, were the judge to allow it.
