A former aide to Rudy Giuliani is suing Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer for sexual harassment, accusing him of hiring her to satisfy his sexual desire.
In a civil suit seeking at least $10 million, Noel Dunphy said that Giuliani began abusing him in January 2019, shortly after he was hired as a casual employee.

“Guliani presented himself as a benevolent employer and hero.” “She is both… Through this case, Ms. Dunphy seeks some measure of justice from a man who thought his power and connections made him an outcast.”
The case is Dunphy v. Giuliani et al, New York State Supreme Court, New York County, No. 1. It is 650033/2023.
