A bankruptcy judge ruled that Rudy Giuliani can appeal the $146 million defamation verdict against him in favor of two Georgia election workers, but only if he uses pre-approved donors to pay legal expenses.

In December, a jury found Giuliani liable for defaming Ruby Freeman and her daughter Shaye Moss after he baselessly accused them of trying to commit election fraud.

“Any fees and expenses incurred by the Debtor and his advisors in the Freeman Litigation in connection with any Post-Trial Filings and the Notice of Appeal shall not be paid by, and shall not result in a claim against, the Debtor or his estate,” U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Sean Lane wrote.

Giuliani subsequently filed for bankruptcy.

The bankruptcy judge said Giuliani must seek court approval for any third-party payments and they cannot come from his existing assets.

“We very much appreciate the judge’s expeditious consideration of this matter and look forward to proceeding accordingly,” political advisor Ted Goodman said.

The judge also sought clarity on Giuliani’s legal defense funds and their funding sources.

Giuliani declared he did not directly or indirectly donate to the funds.

The judge’s ruling expedites the appeals process while ensuring Giuliani’s existing assets are protected for creditors.

It comes after a separate judge recently fined Trump over $450 million for fraud related to his business practices.
