Unlike Donald Trump, the ex-president and self-professed billionaire who only hires “the best people,” the company that makes Dominion voting machines has good lawyers. On Wednesday, they won a lawsuit against Trump’s lawyers and friends – Rudy Giuliani, Sydney Powell, and Mike Lindell – giving them the right to pursue a 1.3 billion dollar judgment against the conspiracy theorists who backed Trump’s Big Lie.
The trio levied accusations against the vote tabulation machine company of fraud meant to unseat Trump from the White House, which they apparently did in coordination with Democrats, Republicans, the Italian government, and Cuba. Dominion sued for libel, saying that the accusations have hurt their company, a claim fairly easy to prove. Although all three claimed after the lawsuit was initially filed that they looked forward to the discovery process, which would surely prove their claims true and Dominion to be fraudulent, they all three tried to get the lawsuit dismissed. They failed.
According to Forbes:
‘U.S. District Judge Carl J. Nichols threw out Powell, Lindell and Giuliani’s motions to dismiss the lawsuits on every count, striking down Giuliani’s argument that his should be thrown out on more technical procedural grounds as well as Powell and Lindell’s arguments their cases should be moved from Washington, D.C., to courts in Texas and Minnesota if they moved forward.’
The case against the three, which have seen such arguments as Lindell’s claims that no reasonable person would believe anything he says so he should be allowed to say anything he wants, will proceed.
Twitter was quick to show their approval for the decision. Read some of their comments below:
