Dominion Voting Systems sued MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, alleging $1.2 billion in damages to its brand for defamatory comments Lindell repeatedly made about the firm.
The complaint accuses Lindell of perpetuating a “Big Lie” about Dominion’s role in the 2020 presidential election. It says he knowingly spread false information about how Dominion’s voting machines conduct audits, investments from foreign countries and its presence in U.S. voting systems.
Lindell “knowingly lied about Dominion to sell more pillows to people who continued tuning in to hear what they wanted to hear about the election,” the complaint alleges.
After Dominion indicated it might sue him, Lindell amplified his allegations against the company in a documentary, amplifying multiple pieces of misinformation.
