Lawsuit of the Week.
Dominion Voting Systems sues Donald Trump's attorney Sidney Powell for over $1 billion in a defamation action.
In a 100-plus page complaint, Dominion cites Powell's claims that their voting machines were used to flip votes from President Trump to President Elect Joe Biden in Georgia. The lawsuit highlights and argues "demonstrably false" statements including that:
- Dominion software "trashed" votes cast for President Trump
- Dominion "injected conterfeit ballots" to support the candidecy of Joe Biden
- Dominion software was created for the purposes of rigging elections on behalf of Venezualian leader Hugo Chavez
According to the lawsuit filed by attorneys for the law firm Clare Locke LLP, such "wild accusations" caused significant harm to Dominion and its employees including multiple death threats. The company is seeking $1.3 billion in compensation.
