Dominion Voting Systems, an election technology company that previously faced conspiracy theories about voter fraud, is suing MyPillow and its CEO Mike Lendell.

The company wants a total sum of $1.3 billion for damaging claims Lendell made about them. This refers to Lindell’s unfounded statements in support of Donald Trump about the theory that Dominion rigged voting machines in favor of Joe Biden for the 2021 presidential election.

The lawsuit, which is over 100 pages long, points to the several times Lindell publicly made false comments about voter fraud in media appearances and social media postings. This includes a two-hour film that was aired on OAN and revolved around false voter fraud theories.

Dominion claims that Lindell “sells the lie to this day because the lie sells pillows.” They continue to point out how many of MyPillow’s products have promotional discounts on items such as “Proof” and “QAnon.”

Dominion’s CEO, John Poulus, said Lindell continued to spread the lies even when he was given warnings to stop. He says that Lindell made promises on several separate occasions to find proof of this voter fraud and was unable to come up with any evidence in the end.

Poulus says that Lindell’s comments and actions “caused irreparable harm to Dominion’s good reputation and threatened the safety of our employees and customers.” He continues, stating that Lindell needs to be held accountable for his remarks that undermined the election system.

Dominion has also recently sued lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell for roughly the same amount over the lies about election fraud which they too propagated.
