Dominion Voting Systems filed a lawsuit on Feb. 22 against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, following his statements about the election technology vendor after the Nov. 3 presidential election.
The lawsuit, filed in Washington D.C., alleges that Lindell, a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, harmed Dominion’s brand by raising questions about the company’s vote-counting equipment. The company is seeking damages in excess of $1.3 billion.
“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 lawsuit states, referring to a video produced by Lindell that he released on several platforms, including his own website.
