New York Bar Association Launched Inquiry To Remove Rudy Giuliani From Organization
The New York State Bar Association announced it was launching an investigation into whether or not President Donald Trump’s Personal Attorney, Rudy Giuliani, should be removed from the organization.
The group said it was looking into remarks made by Giuliani, regarding alleged voter fraud, and comments the attorney made before protesters stormed the Capitol.
In a statement the NYSBA Said,
“NYSBA has received hundreds of complaints in recent months about Mr. Giuliani and his baseless efforts on behalf of President Trump to cast doubt on the veracity of the 2020 presidential election and, after the votes were cast, to overturn its legitimate results,”
“Based on these complaints, and the statement Mr. Giuliani uttered shortly before the attack on the Capitol, NYSBA President Scott M. Karson has launched an inquiry pursuant to the Association’s bylaws to determine whether Mr. Giuliani should be removed from the membership rolls of the Association.”
If the NYSBA did remove Giuliani from the organization, that doesn’t mean they would disbar Giuliani, because they do not have the power to do so.
“We do not have the ability to disbar him. Only the state court system can do that in New York State. He would still be able to practice law without NYSBA membership.”
