Dominion Voting Systems has filed a massive defamation lawsuit against Trump’s personal attorney and former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Dominion is alleging that Giuliani made numerous defamatory remarks against the voting machine company in the weeks after the 2020 presidential election. Dominion is seeking a jaw-dropping $1.3 billion in damages from what is called a “viral disinformation campaign.”
The Hill reports:
“For Dominion — whose business is producing and providing voting systems for elections — there are no accusations that could do more to damage Dominion’s business or to impugn Dominion’s integrity, ethics, honesty, and financial integrity,” reads the 107-page complaint filed in federal court in Washington, D.C.
Dominion alleges that Giuliani continued to falsely accuse the company of fixing the 2020 presidential election by manipulating votes even after independent audits and hand recounts disproved his claims.
It also notes that while Giuliani lodged numerous accusations against Dominion in media appearances, he was unwilling to do so when he represented the Trump campaign in federal court in Pennsylvania, where he would risk sanctions for knowingly false statements.
“Notably, although Dominion machines were used in Pennsylvania in the 2020 election, the Trump Campaign’s complaint did not include any allegations about Dominion,” the lawsuit filed Monday states.
The defamation suit against Giuliani comes after Dominion hit another pro-Trump lawyer, Sidney Powell with a lawsuit earlier this month for making unsubstantiated claims against the voting machine company.
