Clips from the deposition of MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, connected to a defamation lawsuit against him filed by Dominion Voting Systems, have been released by the firm’s lawyers, with one now-viral clip showing Lindell lashing out at a Dominion lawyer after a snarky comment about “lumpy pillows.”
The clips, which took place in March, were released online after the lawyers of Dr. Eric Coomer, Dominion Director of Product Strategy and Security, filed to compel deposition testimony in court. In addition to Lindell, Coomer filed a lawsuit against Newsmax, accusing them of defamation for questioning the integrity of Dominion voting machines in the aftermath of the 2020 election.
While speaking in reference to customer service calls involving Lindell, one Dominion lawyer could be heard saying, “Okay, and I’m not asking about the lumpy pillow calls,” prompting a reaction from the MyPillow CEO.
“No they’re not lumpy pillows, that’s not what they call on,” a visibly frustrated Lindell shot back, explaining how his company’s customer service works. “When you say lumpy pillows, now you’re an asshole. You got that? You’re an asshole is what you are!”
“No, he’s an asshole! He’s an ambulance-chasing lawyer, so don’t start with me. I got all day,” Lindell is later seen telling Coomer’s lawyer during questioning. “I’ll take as much time as you want, so let’s go. You’re not my boss, you’re just a lawyer, frivolous lawyer.”
“His last deposition, taken in Minneapolis on August 23, 2023, ended after Lindell left the witness chair during an unscheduled break while, again, disparaging counsel,” the Dominion lawyer’s filing reads. It also referred to Lindell as “vulgar, threatening, loud, [and] disrespectful.”
“Through this Motion, Dr. Coomer seeks an order compelling Mr. Lindell to appear before the Court or the Magistrate Judge in Denver, Colorado, so that decorum can be maintained and contemporaneous rulings can be sought during a rescheduled deposition. Dr. Coomer further seeks attorney fees and expenses associated with Mr. Lindell’s discovery abuse,” the filing continued.
