Mike Lindell sues election-machine operator Dominion Voting Systems

Mike Lindell, the inventor of MyPillow

Dominion Voting Systems has sued a number of publications and individuals since last November's election, when its machines were used in states where presidential election results gave rise to suspicion of election fraud.

One man targeted by the company is Mike Lindell, the pro-Trump businessman who runs the MyPillow business.

Now he's fighting back.

Lindell and MyPillow Inc. on Monday sued Dominion Voting Systems seeking more than $1.6 billion in damages.

The privately held company explained it is suing to protect free speech in the country.

"This lawsuit is brought in support of the marketplace of ideas and 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,” the complaint said.

The Duluth News Tribune in Minnesota, where Lindell's organization is based, reported the case in U.S. District Court in Minnesota contends Dominion tried to "silence" and "punish" Lindell for his opinions about the election and the voting machine company.

Dominion's suit against Lindell sought $1.3 billion.

Lindell was among the Trump supporters who claimed the results in key battleground states were affected by fraud, based on sworn statements of witnesses and huge dumps of ballots in the middle of the night in Biden's favor.

Nearly every legal case based on that evidence was dismissed not on the merits, but on technical grounds.

What has not been challenged is the fact that election officials in several states change polices and procedures without the permission of state lawmakers, to whom the Constitution assigns that authority.

Lindell alleges Dominion is violating his right to free speech under the First Amendment.

His case argues that Dominion essentially was acting as the government in its role of administering the election and counting the votes, and so it should be viewed as a government entity, subjecting it to First Amendment requirements.

Lindell, discussing the issue on his new social media site, Frank, on Monday, said, "This is all about the First Amendment rights and free speech."

His first guest on his all-day "Frank-a-Thon" was famed lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who is representing him in the lawsuit.

Dershowitz explained why Dominion is guilty of violating the First Amendment rights of Lindell and the media reporting his actions.

The Harvard law professor said Domion's attitude is: "We’re gonna sue you and put you out of business, and we’re not even going to let you see our source codes so you can see what we’re suing you about,'" the report said.

Dershowitz cited Dominion's decision to conceal its source code for machines that count ballots.

"It’s as if My Pillow were accused of having some secret poison in its formula, and you couldn’t tell it by just looking at the pillow, and then somehow My Pillow said, we’re not going to give your our formula, we’re going to hide it from you. That’s what they’re trying to do. They’re trying to hide what they’re doing—at the same time that they’re trying to prevent you from entering the marketplace of ideas. They’re in the marketplace of ideas. They’re not only in the marketplace of ideas; they’re in the economic marketplace too. They’re to shut you out of being able to sell your products in stores. They’re trying to silence you, and they’re doing it as the government of the United States. That’s why I’m in this case," he said.

Dershowitz explained the applicability of the First Amendment, which normally applies to government bureaucrats and agencies.

"Dominion is the government for purposes of the lawsuit," he said.

Dershowitz charged that Dominion is a "government actor" in the case, and it is Lindell's right "to look at Dominion's source to determine exactly what was going on."

He said Lindell would not be the last target without his lawsuit.

"If they can silence Mike Lindell and My Pillow—they can silence YOU! You should be on our side. You should be seeking the source codes. You should be defending free speech," he said.

Dominion's claim against Lindell alleges he used his accusations against the voting machine company as a sales strategy.

Dominion also alleged that Lindell's opinions about the election process and results were a "lie."
