Nicole Page Quoted on the Inability of Rudy Giuliani To Successfully Sue Sasha Baron Cohen for Rudy’s Appearance in ‘Borat 2’
The highly anticipated movie Borat 2 was released today, bringing with it a scene featuring President Trump’s Lawyer Rudy Giuliani in an particularly compromising position with actress Maria Bakalova, who is playing a journalist in the scene. Giuliani, who was told that this was an interview about the pandemic response, was wearing a microphone for the occasion and most likely signed an appearance release, as is common for productions of this nature. Giuliani says that he never did anything inappropriate or unusual and is furious about the suggestion, as visible on his Twitter account.
But does he actually have a chance for legal recourse? Unlikely.
Ms. Page notes that “he knows what he signed and that’s why he’s not suing [. . .] He might do something as some kind of gesture, but it will cost a lot of money and he’s going to lose.” Page added that if Baron Cohen and his team have “been sued that many times and won, then someone is getting something right.” Nicole also added that an attempt on Giuliani’s part to protest hidden cameras is not likely to succeed since “New York is a one-party consent state (to secret recording), so as long as one party consented, it’s not illegal.”
