(RoyalPatriot.com )- In February, Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit against MyPillow and its CEO Mike Lindell. In its suit, Dominion accused MyPillow and Lindell of spreading the false claim that the company rigged the 2020 election by manipulating votes cast on its voting machines.
The company is seeking more than $1.3 billion in punitive and compensatory damages, claiming the “viral disinformation campaign” spread by MyPillow and Lindell “irreparably damaged” Dominion’s reputation.
In addition to the suit against MyPillow and Lindell, Dominion filed similar lawsuits against attorney Sidney Powell and Rudy Giuliani.
And in April, MyPillow filed a $1.6 billion lawsuit against Dominion.
In the lawsuit filed in Minnesota district court, MyPillow accused Dominion of waging an “illegal campaign to punish and silence their critics.”
The lawsuit makes a distinction between Mike Lindell and his company, arguing that “MyPillow has not engaged in discussion about the 2020 election.” The suit contends that Lindell spoke for himself, not on behalf of his company.
MyPillow attorney Andrew Parker denied at the time that MyPillow’s court action constituted a countersuit against Dominion. Instead, the lawsuit is being brought to “to remedy the grave harm that has been suffered by MyPillow as a result of Dominion’s suppression of speech and attacks on the Company.”
In a statement in response to the April lawsuit, Dominion legal counsel Stephen Shackelford said at the time that the suit filed by MyPillow was a “meritless retaliatory” suit brought only to “distract from the harm” MyPillow caused to Dominion.”
In response, Dominion filed a motion to dismiss MyPillow’s lawsuit against them. However, on Monday June 28, a Minnesota judge ruled that MyPillow’s lawsuit against Dominion could move forward.
On Tuesday, both MyPillow attorney Andrew Parker and CEO Mike Lindell gave their reactions to the judge’s ruling on One America News.

In early June, Mike Lindell also filed a lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems.
In his suit, Lindell claimed Dominion has “weaponized the legal process” in order to intimidate witnesses “with baseless defamation lawsuits or ‘cease and desist’ letters.” The suit further claims that Dominion’s lawsuits are an effort to “cover up” the presence of security flaws in their voting systems.
