Judge Rejects Mike Lindell’s Request to Throw Out $1.3B Lawsuit

A judge has denied Mike Lindell’s latest appeal to have a $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting Systems thrown out. District Judge Carl Nichols paved the way for further litigation from Dominion over statements the MyPillow CEO made regarding the 2020 election.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Nichols wrote that the questions raised by Lindell’s defense team were “far from exceptional” and that MyPillow had not “made a serious argument that a court is required, at the motion to dismiss stage in a defamation case, to consider and weigh factual materials outside the pleadings and relied on by the defendant.”

The voting technology company sued Lindell and MyPillow in February 2021, accusing them of deliberately spreading false information that Dominion manipulated the results of the 2020 election in favor of Joe Biden.

The company is seeking $1.3 billion, arguing that Dominion’s reputation was “irreparably damaged” by the statements.

“Despite repeated warnings and efforts to share the facts with him, Mr. Lindell has continued to maliciously spread false claims about Dominion, each time giving empty assurances that he would come forward with overwhelming proof,” Dominion CEO John Poulos said in a statement last February. “Mr. Lindell’s lies have undermined trust in American democracy and tarnished the hard work of local election officials.”

Lindell is involved in several lawsuits. Last year, the CEO filed a lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic, claiming that the companies are “weaponizing the judicial system and the litigation process to silence dissent, unpopular beliefs, or facts inconveniently out-of-line with mainstream groupthink.”

Lindell is also facing a lawsuit from the House Select Committee investigating the Jan. 6th Capitol riot.

WTH happened to our free speech in this country? Mike Lindell should be able to say whatever he wants – our corrupt legislators and prez do it every day – if their mouth is moving, they are lying. Look at the vast numbers of American citizens they hurt and kill. I think all the facts from all around our country speak for themselves – and the results in GA and AZ show intent to defraud.

I have been a fraud auditor for 39 years. The methodology used by fraud auditors to detect fraud is not necessarily forensic in an investigative sense. Once results are finalized and as long as there is sufficient historical evidence available, the likelihood of successfully ascertaining the existence of fraud and measuring the significance of fraud is easily 95%-100% probable. Based on this high level of reliability, I have applied this methodology to the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election and determined that the probability that Donald Trump won the election is 99.4%. In addition, the magnitude of Trump’s victory was between 8 and 12 million votes. The critical empirical evidence used in the application of this methodology to the 2020 Presidential Election is the election results of 48 counties since the year 1852. There are specific statistical consistencies that these 48 counties have reflected during every election since 1852 that can provide the basis for fraud detection if there were significant departures from historical results. For example, there are 7 counties that, since 1852, have always voted for the winner of the election whether a Democrat or Republican. Trump won all 7 of these counties in the 2020 Presidential election. Another example is that there were 6 counties (all in battleground states) where the majority of voters, since 1852, voted for the Republican candidate. The 2020 election reflected that all 6 of these counties voted for the Democratic candidate. In summary, for each anomaly, this methodology generates an algorithm that calculates the overall probability that fraud existed and the level of significance of the fraud. With a total of 106 anomalies, the 2020 Presidential election substantially surpassed every prior Presidential election since 1852 by 40 percentage points as the most fraudulent election in the history of the United States.  Accordingly, the citizens of the United States, whether Democrat or Republican should be shouting for public hearings and complete election reform before something like this happens again.

Thank you for your great post. The courts, all the way to the Supremes refused to hear any case, because when it was all said and done they didn’t want to be viewed as the ones deciding the election, especially if President Trump had one. Roberts in the SC especially didn’t want to hear any of it. Mind you he’s more than likely a never Trumper.
The funny thing is that o’biden won on all the swing states. What are the chances of that?

Thank you from one auditor to another with a CPA, BSA, and programming credentials to add to the auditing backup who agrees with your entire analysis. And I will add that the amount of fraud that had to be done in that one night was bound to be easy to identify and prove. And Maricopa county did it right all the way.

Old senile Joe in his basement won nothing but the DNC cheated a whole lot to get him from 40 to 81 on that count to look like he won.

So correct, and the state legislators in Pa. gave their job to the governor, and then the state supreme court would not even listen to the Trump lawyers, when they wanted to show the signed affidavits of poll watchers, who watch the unlawful activities of the vote counters..much the same happened in Georgia..this has all been documented..

Lindell is correct. Dominion voting machines were corrupted and loaded with programming that skewed the REAL results.

The Democrat Political Party had at least 5 different tactics to steal the election. They were successful. The entire election was a fraud.

Now the liberal Democrat morons are doing everything in their power to block all the evidence. The only things that the Democrats are good at is lying, cheating, and fooling dumb people (a.k.a. Democrat voters).
