If you think the elections were free and fair, then you probably get fired up about people like My Pillow Founder Mike Lindell using his considerable wealth to claim that the Dominion Voting Systems machines were rigged to flip votes from Trump to Biden.
If you think the election was stolen, then you probably cheer Mike Lindell and others for shining a light on the issue.
Now the two sides might face off in court, and that could be good for all of us.
Dominion Voting Systems Inc on Monday filed a defamation lawsuit against businessman Mike Lindell, chief executive of My Pillow Inc, for spreading false conspiracy theories that Dominion’s machines rigged November’s presidential election.
The Denver-based company filed the case in federal court in Washington, seeking $1.3 billion in damages. Chaska, Minnesota-based My Pillow is named as a co-defendant in the lawsuit.
Dominion previously filed similar lawsuits against Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, two lawyers that promoted former President Donald Trump’s baseless claims of widespread election fraud.
Dominion’s lawyers wrote in the newest suit:
“Acting in concert with allies and media outlets that were determined to curry favor with one of their biggest sponsors and to promote a false preconceived narrative about the 2020 election, Lindell launched a defamatory marketing campaign about Dominion that reached millions of people and caused enormous harm to Dominion.”
If the suit goes to trial then both sides have the power of discovery, which they can use to uncover information that should put to rest the rigged voting machine claims.
Of course, if you think the court systems are rigged, well, then none of this matters.
