Giuliani’s law license for Washington, D.C., was suspended in July of 2021. His license to practice law in New York was suspended in June of that year, the Supreme Court of the State of New York’s Appellate Division ruled. Trump came to Giuliani’s defense after the ruling and said the state “is out of control.”
