  • Hunter Biden sued Rudy Giuliani and Giuliani’s former lawyer, Bob Costello, in a new civil lawsuit.
  • The suit alleges that they hacked Biden’s devices and tampered with his data, causing the “total annihilation” of his digital privacy.
  • It’s Biden’s latest legal salvo against those he accuses of trying to get access to his data for political purposes.

Hunter Biden sued Rudy Giuliani and his former lawyer on Tuesday, alleging that they hacked his devices and tampered with his data, causing the “total annihilation” of his digital privacy.

“For the past many months and even years, Defendants have dedicated an extraordinary amount of time and energy toward looking for, hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over data that they were given that was taken or stolen from Plaintiff’s devices or storage platforms, including what Defendants claim to have obtained from Plaintiff’s alleged ‘laptop’ computer,” the lawsuit said.

Biden has accused Giuliani, Costello, and several entities owned by Giuliani of violating the federal Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

Tuesday’s lawsuit is Biden’s latest salvo in his legal fight against those involved in trying to obtain access to his devices or the data stored on them.

He previously sued Garrett Ziegler, a Trump White House aide, alleging that Ziegler “has devoted most of his waking time and energy” since leaving the White House on trying to access Biden’s devices. 

Costello and a representative for Giuliani did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
