Dominion files lawsuit on defamation against Rudy Giuliani
Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit against former President Donald Trump's personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)- On Monday, Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation lawsuit against former President Donald Trump‘s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
Dominion is suing Giuliani for carrying out “defamatory falsehoods” about the company in part to enrich himself via legal fees and Giuliani’s podcast.
The company said it’s looking to “set the record straight, to vindicate the company’s rights under civil law, to recover compensatory and punitive damages, and to stand up for itself, its employees, and the electoral process.”
“Although he was unwilling to make false election fraud claims about Dominion and its voting machines in a court of law because he knew those allegations are false, he and his allies manufactured and disseminated the ‘Big Lie,’ which foreseeably went viral and deceived millions of people into believing that Dominion had stolen their votes and fixed the election,” the lawsuit said.
The Ontario-based company is seeking over $1 billion in damages.
Though the lawsuit is targeting Giuliani, it also mentions allies including Sidney Powell, Lou Dobbs, Fox News, Fox Business, Newsmax, One America News Network, and The Epoch Times.
The lawsuit also claims that Dominion’s founder and employees “have been harassed and received death threats and Dominion has suffered unprecedented and irreparable harm.”
