MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell joins Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani in having bids to block defamation suits against them dismissed by the court. In separate actions earlier this year, U.S. federal courts ruled that Dominion Voting Systems can move forward with defamation lawsuits against Giuliani and Powell. On Monday, Lindell’s bid to have his case elevated to the U.S. Supreme Court was denied.
Lindell alleges that Dominion Voting Systems manipulated votes in the 2020 election — changing votes to favor Democratic candidates — including President Joe Biden.
In response to challenges from Powell, Giuliani and Lindell, Dominion Voting Systems sued over what they said were false and malicious claims.
According to The Hill, Dominion’s $1.3 billion lawsuit alleges “Lindell harmed the manufacturer’s brand by promoting claims it skewed the election toward now-President Biden.”
The Supreme Court’s refusal to hear Lindell’s case means Dominion’s defamation lawsuit can move forward.
Lindell, Giuliani and Powell are prominent Trump allies and have, on multiple occasions, stated that Dominion Voting Systems were compromised and have been used to usher Democrats into power.
Dominion is pursuing defamation suits against former President Trump’s allies and likely feels emboldened in their efforts in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s denial of Lindell’s appeal.
