Lawsuit says Rudy Giuliani stiffed Colonie accounting firm out of $10K

ALBANY — A Latham accounting firm is suing Rudy Giuliani for $25,000 on allegations the former New York City mayor failed to pay for services the business rendered in connection with his most recent divorce.

The 79-year-old Giuliani — a one-time mob-busting U.S. attorney in Manhattan and private attorney for former President Donald Trump now suspended from practicing law and under indictment in Georgia — retained the certified public accounting firm of BST & Co. on April 4, 2014. The firm appraised Giuliani’s business interests and other financial consulting duties to use in Giuliani’s divorce from his third wife, Judith, according to court papers filed in state Supreme Court in Albany.

The firm said it abided by the agreement and that Giuliani paid more than $10,871 of his debt in April 2023. But it alleged that Giuliani has stiffed the firm $10,000. The suit asked for an additional $15,000 in attorney fees from Giuliani, a Republican who served as New York City’s mayor between 1993 and 2001.

The lawsuit is the latest legal financial problem for Giuliani. In September, his former lawyer sued him alleging Giuliani only paid a fraction of nearly $1.6 million in legal fees he’d racked up from investigations into his efforts to keep Trump in the White House after the 2020 election. He faces other legal fees and the potential of a massive financial penalty in a Georgie defamation case. Giuliani recently listed his New York apartment for $6.5 million

Giuliani attacked the Italian mob. Clearing the way for WHICH mob in the 80s and 90s?

Hmmm?

He won't have to worry about rent for the next ten years since he'll be afforded free government housing.

Not accusing the esteemed former mayor of anything, of course, but I'm struck at how unsurprised I was by my misreading.

Umm, I'm pretty sure the FBI (with Joe Pistone) busted the NY mob.
Rudy was just a figurehead. He busted nothing.
