Arizona Citizens Supporting Honest Representative Government At All Levels
NOTE: This is what Lindell said he hoped would happen. Now, they can dig into everything during Discovery. We have to wonder if Dominion has hidden evidence.
Dominion Voting Systems sued MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, alleging $1.2 billion in damages to its brand for defamatory comments Lindell repeatedly made about the firm.
The complaint accuses Lindell of perpetuating a “Big Lie” about Dominion’s role in the 2020 presidential election. It says he knowingly spread false information about how Dominion’s voting machines conduct audits, investments from foreign countries and its presence in U.S. voting systems.
Lindell “knowingly lied about Dominion to sell more pillows to people who continued tuning in to hear what they wanted to hear about the election,” the complaint alleges.
After Dominion indicated it might sue him, Lindell amplified his allegations against the company in a documentary, amplifying multiple pieces of misinformation.
“Instead of retracting his lies, Lindell – a multimillionaire with a nearly unlimited ability to broadcast his preferred messages on conservative media – whined that he was being 'censored' and 'attacked' and produced a 'docu-movie' featuring shady characters and fake documents sourced from dark corners of the internet,” the complaint reads.
Conspiracy theories about Dominion and other election security firms circulated widely in the aftermath of the 2020 election. Dominion joins voting systems firm Smartmatic, which filed a $2.7 billion lawsuit against Fox News, in taking legal action against major right-wing media personalities accused of spreading misinformation about the 2020 election. This month, Fox News Media filed a motion to dismiss the suit, arguing it looks to “stifle debate and chill vital First Amendment activities.”
[Yes, suing for $Billions is designed to intimidate and seems less than serious. Who could really sue for damages when they have already damaged 74million voters? Who will represent Lindell? Powell? Wood? This is a career building case for savvy lawyers who will be beating his door down to represent him. I don't know about you, but I think we need new pillows. Maybe a few sets of sheets, too!]
