Rudy Giuliani, "America's Mayor" known for his response to the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center, is now the subject to a $10 million civil lawsuit for sexual assault, according to court documents obtained by the Wisconsin Law Journal.

Former business development manager Noelle Dunphy filed the lawsuit against Giuliani on May 15 in New York City's Supreme Court in Manhattan. Dunphy had earned an annual salary of $1 million. When Dunphy was hired by Giuliani in 2019, he was serving as Trump's personal attorney, according to court documents.

Giuliani allegedly asked Dunphy if she knew anyone in need of a pardon, telling her that he was selling pardons for $2 million, which he and President Trump would split, according to court documents.

Giuliani allegedly made anti-Semitic comments about Jewish people and other hateful comments about Black people, Latinos, and Muslims, according to court documents.

"Jews want to go through their freaking Passover all the time, man oh man. Get over the Passover. It was like 3,000 years ago. The red sea parted, big deal. It's not the first time that happened," he allegedly said, according to court documents.
