In their new motion, the duo asked the court for permission to depose Trump’s attorney Smith. They accuse him of being served with notice but refusing to appear at the eleventh hour.

The duo said they “are seeking the assistance of the Court only as a last resort, as it has become obvious that third-party Ray Smith will be obstinate and unreasonable in response to Plaintiffs’ efforts to obtain his deposition.”

The two said they “have identified Mr. Smith as a third-party witness who might possess information relevant to their claims and reached out to Mr. Smith directly to coordinate a deposition.”

Freeman and Moss said they “attempted to work in good faith with Mr. Smith and his counsel to schedule his deposition” with no luck.

Smith’s attorney told the women’s lawyer that his client would not appear but denied attempting to “unnecessarily drag things out.”

He wrote to Freeman and Moss’ attorney, “I cannot jeopardize my client’s interests or his clients’ interest when I am provided “inaccurate, unreliable and incomplete” information. It is indeed unfortunate that we could not comply with what our federal judges expect and work this out.”

A judge has yet to rule on the matter

As previously reported, on top of this lawsuit, Giuliani is being sued by his ex-employee for sexual assault.
