Dominion Voting Systems filed a lawsuit Monday against My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell, accusing him of defamation by falsely accusing the voting machine company of “stealing millions of votes” in the 2020 presidential election, according to a report.
The company is seeking more than $1.3 billion in damages in the lawsuit filed in DC federal court, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Dominion cites several statements made by Lindell, including in media appearances, social-media posts and a two-hour documentary in which the pillow honcho expounds on his baseless conspiracy theories about the election, according to the outlet.
The complaint alleges that Lindell made false claims about the integrity of the company’s machines and that he knew no credible evidence supported his claims it had stolen the election from former President Donald Trump.
“He is well aware of the independent audits and paper ballot recounts conclusively disproving the Big Lie,” the complaint states, according to the Journal. “But Lindell … sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillows.”
The lawsuit accuses Lindell of falsely alleging that algorithms in Dominion’s machines had stolen votes from the former commander in chief as he backed Trump’s claims about voter fraud.
Dominion — which says it supplies election equipment used by more than 40 percent of American voters – claims that Lindell’s allegations have irreparably damaged its reputation, jeopardized its contracts with state and local governments, and triggered death threats and harassment against its workers.
Dominion attorney Megan Meier said Lindell has become one of the leading promoters of claims that the company rigged the election.
“Even as some of his allies have started to quiet down a bit, Mr. Lindell has doubled down and tripled down,” Meier told The Wall Street Journal last week.
Lindell — who released the film titled “Absolute Proof” on his YouTube channel on Friday — also paid the right-wing One America News Network to run it as a commercial this weekend, network President Charles Herring has told The Post.
The CEO, who got his bedding company banned from Twitter earlier this month, claims the movie will show “100 percent” that China and other countries flipped votes in Biden’s favor — even though Trump’s own law enforcement officials found no evidence of any such thing.
Then-Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said on Election Day that there was no evidence of any “foreign actor” altering vote tallies, while Trump-appointed Attorney General William Barr said officials had not uncovered proof of widespread voter fraud.
Dominion also recently slapped Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, who represented Trump, with separate $1.3 billion defamation lawsuits for pushing the claims it rigged the election.
The former New York City mayor “and his allies manufactured and disseminated the ‘Big Lie,’ which foreseeably went viral and deceived millions of people into believing that Dominion had stolen their votes and fixed the election,” according to the lawsuit.
