Hunter Biden Drops Laptop Lawsuit Against Rudy Giuliani

Hunter Biden is dropping his lawsuit accusing Rudy Giuliani and the former New York City mayor’s ex-lawyer of manipulating data found on his infamous laptop.

Biden’s lawyer Abbe Lowell filed the stipulation for dismissal Thursday in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York.

The attorney asked the court to dismiss the lawsuit against Giuliani and Robert Costello “without prejudice, with each party bearing its own attorneys’ fees, costs, and expenses.”

Attorneys for all three parties have agreed to the stipulation, court documents show.

The lawsuit claimed that Giuliani, 80, and Costello violated the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act when they allegedly hacked and manipulated data on the abandoned laptop in a “total annihilation” of the disgraced first son’s “digital privacy.”

Filed last September, the lawsuit sought more than $75,000 in damages, plus attorneys’ fees and other penalties.

“This dismissal – along with Hunter Biden’s conviction based on evidence taken from the laptop – is a vindication for Mr. Giuliani and Mr. Costello as well as all of the media outlets who broke the laptop story in 2020 and suffered orchestrated censorship by social media, the leftist mainstream media, and others who engaged in election interference,” Giuliani’s attorney Joe Sibley said in a statement to The Post.

Sibley argued that Biden’s legal team agreed to dismiss the lawsuit because “they know they have problems on the merits.”

Lowell and Costello’s lawyer did not respond to The Post’s requests for comment.

The motion to dismiss the suit must be approved by US District Judge Jessica Clarke before it is finalized.

Biden, 54, was convicted of three felony counts Tuesday related to lying about his drug use when he purchased a Colt Cobra revolver from a Delaware gun shop in October 2018.

The government used data taken from his infamous laptop – which he never picked up from a Wilmington, De., computer repair store in April 2019 – to prove its case that the first son was addicted to crack cocaine when he bought the firearm.

The computer repair shop owner – John Paul Mac Isaac – gave Biden’s hard drive to the FBI after unearthing evidence of illegal financial activity, drug use and patronization of prostitutes.

Mac Isaac made a copy of the hard drive before turning it over to the feds, which he gave to Costello in August 2020.

Giuliani, then a client of Costello’s, provided The Post with a copy of the hard drive in October 2020, leading to a series of exclusive, bombshell stories detailing the Biden family’s overseas business interests and the role President Biden may have played in making money for his relatives.

    One more brick in Biden’s prison cell if he even goes his daddy said he wouldn’t parson his son but if Joe steps down and Harris gets to Finnish his term he probably has it set up for her to pardon Hunter that way Joe didn’t lie exactly

    maybe he can sue Biden for the $140 Million to the election workers who successfully sued him for libel.

  • milmec says:

    This is not a win for Rudy. Hunter Briben had no case to begin with. It was going to be dismissed in court anyway. The POS crackhead already caused Rudy financial damage in defending himself and will now move on to some other frivolous activity to attack is detractors.
