Rudy Giuliani, former New York mayor and attorney to Donald Trump, has been sued by his former associate Noelle Dunphy for $10 million. The lawsuit alleges “abuses of power, wide-ranging sexual assault and harassment, wage theft and other misconduct” including “alcohol-drenched rants that included sexist, racist and antisemitic remarks”. Giuliani has denied the allegations and plans to defend against them.

In a lawsuit filed in New York state by Dunphy, it is claimed that Giuliani would frequently request oral sex while on speaker phone with high-profile associates and clients, including former President Trump. Dunphy started working for Giuliani in 2019 as the director of business development.

According to her allegations, he would make repugnant “sexual requests” and frequently indulge in “alcohol-fueled tirades” involving sexist, racist, and antisemitic remarks. Recordings of these outbursts are said to exist. It was evidently “clear” to Giuliani that “meeting his sexual requests-which could arise at any time or place-was an essential condition of her employment and his legal representation.”

“Unbeknownst to Ms. Dunphy, Giuliani apparently decided during the interview that he would use the job offer and his representation as a pretext to develop a quid pro quo sexual relationship with Ms. Dunphy. He was later recorded telling Ms. Dunphy, ‘I’ve wanted you from the day I interviewed you,'” the lawsuit alleged.

The lawsuit alleges that merely a week into her employment, Giuliani arranged for Dunphy to travel to New York via a chartered plane and insisted that she stay in a guest suite at his Upper East Side apartment. During their time together, they consumed alcohol, and at one juncture “Giuliani then pulled her head onto his penis, without asking for or obtaining any form of consent.”

“He held her by her hair. It became clear to Ms. Dunphy that there was no way out of giving him oral sex. She did so, against her will.”
