MyPillow, Inc., the company owned by Trump-supporting CEO Mike Lindell, is suing Dominion Voting Systems for $1.6 billion in damages. The lawsuit was announced Monday.
Dominion had already filed its own lawsuit against MyPillow and Lindell for $1.3 billion. Both suits allege defamation tied to Lindell's claims that Dominion's election machines were compromised to benefit the candidacy of Joe Biden in the recent presidential election.
MyPillow claims in its counter-lawsuit that there is a difference between positions of the company and the statements of its CEO.
"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 MyPillow lawsuit says.
