MyPillow files $1.6 billion countersuit against Dominion Voting Systems

Source: CNBC

MyPillow, the bedding company led by the pro-Trump CEO Mike Lindell, on Monday filed a $1.6 billion lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems, which is currently suing Lindell and his business for defamation.

“This is a free-speech case. This is a First Amendment case,” Lindell said on a livestreamed broadcast announcing the lawsuit.

The election-technology firm Dominion sued MyPillow and Lindell in February, accusing them of spreading the false claim that the company rigged the 2020 election for President Joe Biden by manipulating votes. Former President Donald Trump’s campaign and his allies lost dozens of lawsuits in their sweeping effort to overturn key states’ election results and flip the outcome of the race.

Dominion is seeking more than $1.3 billion in punitive and compensatory damages, saying the “viral disinformation campaign” spread by Lindell and others has “irreparably damaged” the company’s reputation. Dominion has filed similar lawsuits against Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, attorney Sidney Powell and Fox News.

2. So . .

Lindell is saying that Dominion should have sued him directly and not MyPillow specifically? Well, then, Dominion (if they haven't already) should file another suit against Mike Lindell directly.

5. This is the weak strategy...

...of "You don't sue me, I sue you!", and I fully expect this to be as successful as this always is. Which is not much. Free speech doesn't mean I can defame some entity that doesn't have a high public profile because I buy into some batcrap crazy hoax. Unlike My Pillow, Dominion doesn't advertise on television or in any common media outlet, so while they be open to ridicule or satire, they aren't open targets for lies that can potentially drive them out of business. These right wing doofi will learn everybody can't be bullied.

11. Defamation vs. Free Speech

This is tied up in projection too. Trump was the one who wanted to curtail the press for its "fake news", or should I make that "FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!!".

This countersuit seems to me an effort to maintain the monopoly for the right wing on fake news. But it's just an opinion.

I heard Dershowitz was one of them. Go figure.

21. I'm sure Lindell still has a lot of cash....for now at least.

And Dershowitz will ask for the money up front. He defended a President that tried to extort a foreign leader by withholding congress approved funding unless he makes up some fake news about his rival's son. So he obviously does not care what anyone thinks of him anymore. Anyone decent that is.

24. He is making his MyPillow corporate lawyers do it. They are the lawyers on it because the company

is suing.
So basically Mike couldn't find outside lawyers to do it so he's making the ones who work for him embarrass themselves for his ego.

17. Counter suing for what damages precisely?

Just goes to show, you can dig up lawyers to file damn near anything. Just like lawsuits about a "stolen" election that wasn't stolen, because there's no evidence of anything being stolen.

PillowMan is back on the crack pipe again. Who's he getting legal advice from, Trump? Either that or he's heading for a fundraising grift like Trump does all the time. He'll get millions of right-wing doorknobs to send him money to "protect the Constitution".

33. So

I have now seen two of his stores here in the Twin Cities. I swear to you that there are as many images of HIM in those stores as there are pillows. What a completely shallow douchebag. I can only hope that Dominion takes him down hard.
