Hunter Biden has filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles against former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for accessing Biden's abandoned "laptop from hell."
Biden claims that Giuliani and his lawyer of "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," that he abandoned at a Delaware computer store.
The lawsuit also claimed, "Defendants are among those who have been primarily responsible for what has been described as the ‘total annihilation’ of Plaintiff’s digital privacy. They also are among those who have been primarily responsible for the ‘total annihilation’ of Plaintiff’s data."
Hunter Biden abandoned the laptop at John Paul Mac Isaac’s Delaware computer repair shop presumably because he forgot or simply didn't care because at the time he was addicted to crack cocaine.
The device was considered abandoned and the store owner, not Giuliani, saved a copy of the devices hard drive before the FBI eventually picked the device up from the shop.
Hunter Biden's decision to sue Giuliani over the laptop is an interesting decision as it is drawing national attention to the laptop nearly three years after the story originally broke.
When Giuliani eventually got hold of the laptop data that had been recovered, he turned it over to the New York Post who published the story just a month ahead of the 2020 presidential election and setting off a years long battle that has yet to conclude.
With that story, the New York Post also included a contract that Hunter Biden had signed saying that if he failed to pay for the repair service and pick up his computer after 90 days, his computer would be considered abandoned.
This contract will be critical for Giuliani in fending off this lawsuit as it negates any expectation of privacy that Biden might have had.
Hunter Biden's claims that his "digital privacy" was violated and his data was destroyed won't hold up considering the contract he signed. The only question is will a judge see reason or will Hunter Biden get favor because of his political connections?
In notoriously liberal Los Angeles, it isn't crazy to imagine an activist judge going out of his way to punish Giuliani, who is a close ally to former President Donald Trump.
President Joe Biden certainly won't be interested in rehashing the laptop story considering he has a presidential election to win next year.
A Technometrica Institute of Policy and Politics poll found that 79% of Americans believe that the Hunter Biden laptop story would have led to Trump's reelection in 2020 had the story been more widely known before the election.
Thanks to censorship and abuse of the justice system, the Biden campaign managed to suppress the story long enough to survive election day and dethrone Donald Trump. Now the story will be re-litigated and brought back into the American consciousness.
