Dominion Voting Systems is suing Mike Lindell, along with the company he founded My Pillow. The suit was reportedly filed today and seeks $1.3 billion dollars. It stems from Lindell’s repeated false claims “alleging that algorithms in Dominion’s voting machines had stolen votes from Mr. Trump.” This is according to the Wall Street Journal, which broke the story:
The complaint alleges that Mr. Lindell made false claims about the integrity of Dominion’s voting machines and that he knew no credible evidence supported his claims that the company had stolen the election from Mr. Trump—what Dominion has called the “Big Lie.”
Dominion had previously filed similar lawsuits against Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani and pro-Trump attorney Sidney Powell.
Last month, Smartmatic, an election technology company, also filed lawsuits against Fox News and a handful of its hosts including Maria Bartiromo, Lou Dobbs, and Jeanine Pirro. Dominion may also take legal action against some right-wing media outlets that pushed election lies as well.
