Request Granted: Dominion Officially Sues My Pillow Guy for $1.3 Billion
Weeks ago, Dominion voting systems announced a massive lawsuit targeting individuals and companies that had defamed the company in an effort to help Donald Trump overturn the election results. Missing from this list, though, was Mike Lindell, the founder of My Pillow.
Lindell, for his part, was seemingly courting a lawsuit, personally asking to be sued. The Minnesota business has now gotten his wish. Dominion announced a $1.3 billion suit against Lindell on Monday morning.
According to the Wall St. Journal:
“In its complaint, the company cites a number of statements made by Mr. Lindell, including in media appearances, social-media posts, and a two-hour film claiming to prove widespread election fraud. Mr. Lindell said he helped produce the film, which he released online in early February.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. ‘He is well aware of the independent audits and paper ballot recounts conclusively disproving the Big Lie,’ the complaint states. “But Lindell…sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillows.”
In late January, Lindell dared Dominion during a media appearance, “Please sue me. Apparently, nobody wants to see the evidence in the midst of this election fraud. I want everybody to see the evidence.”
It looks like the famed pillow magnate has finally gotten his wish.
