Dominion is on the offensive again…..
After bringing lawsuits against Mike Lindell, Sydney Powell, and others, Dominion Voting Systems is once again bringing lawsuits against both OAN and Newsmax.
The cause of the alleged damages?
Mike Lindell’s videos.
Yup. thats right. Dominion wants to infringe on freedom of speech and freedom of the press by claiming that OAN and Newsmax aired defaming videos which hurt Dominion, and I bet this cyber-symposium isn’t helping them either…..
Here are the details of the lawsuit:

NPR had more on the lawsuit:
In a series of lawsuits filed Tuesday, the voting tech company accused right-wing networks Newsmax and One America News Network of spreading misinformation about the 2020 election by accusing Dominion of rigging the ballots in President Biden’s favor via their voting machines. These lies have harmed the company, its employees and its customers; workers have been threatened, their offices vandalized, and the company has had to spend upwards of $600,000 on security for employees, the suit alleges.
Among other claims, OAN and Newsmax alleged that the Dominion voting machines, which were used in 28 states, deleted millions of votes for Donald Trump — a claim that has “no basis in fact or reality,” the suits state.

Patrick Byrne being sued for $1.73 billion for defamation. This is relatable, I was sued for $280MM. If you knew how the court system worked in the US, you would be rioting in the streets. This will cost Patrick millions in legal fees.https://t.co/Ww9ruSUev0

Business Insider added:
The network broadcast “Absolute Proof” 13 times over four days, the lawsuit notes.
Following “Absolute Proof,” Lindell made more videos pushing false conspiracy theories about Dominion’s role in the election. OAN aired “Scientific Truth” and “Absolute Interference” in April. It also aired “Absolutely 9-0” — which purported to show how the Supreme Court would overturn the 2020 election results — in June.
OAN did not include a disclaimer when airing any of those sequels, according to the lawsuit.
Lindell has stood by his false claims and asked the judge to dismiss Dominion’s February lawsuit against him. He has also filed a counter-suit against Dominion.
