Sidney Powell To Deny Dominion’s $1.3 Billion Lawsuit

Attorney Sidney Powell is attempting to have a $1.3 billion lawsuit filed against her by Dominion Voting Systems dismissed. Powell filed third-party lawsuits to assist former President Donald Trump in his post-election legal battle.

Powell said through her lawyers that the lawsuit should be dismissed because it was filed in the wrong jurisdiction, but that her claims about Dominion were protected by the First Amendment. If the lawsuit isn’t dismissed, her team also wants it moved from the District of Columbia to Texas.

“Reasonable people would not accept such statements as fact, but rather view them as claims that must be tested by the courts through the adversary process,” her lawyers wrote in a motion filed Monday, adding that “Sidney Powell disclosed the facts upon which her conclusions were based.”

Powell’s lawsuit, Dominion said in a statement to Bloomberg News in response to her motion, contradicts her earlier statements.

Dominion attorney Tom Clare said Powell’s attempt to dismiss the case contradicts her assertion that she wants to present her evidence in court. “Dominion Voting Systems is looking forward to the case progressing and intends to hold Powell accountable.”

Dominion attorney Tom Clare said Powell’s attempt to dismiss the case contradicts her assertion that she wants to present her evidence in court. “Dominion Voting Systems is looking forward to the case progressing and intends to hold Powell accountable.”

Powell’s attorneys, on the other hand, claimed on Monday that “all the allegedly defamatory statements attributed to defendants were made as part of the normal process of litigating issues of momentous significance and immense public interest,” adding that “the statements were tightly focused on the legal theories they were advancing in litigation and the evidence they had presented, or were going to present, to a jury.”

Powell’s lawyers also claimed that Powell’s claims about Dominion and election fraud after November 3 were “public announcements,” claiming that they served to reveal the “status of cases” that had been filed in court.

Powell’s lawyers added, “Such announcements are routine by attorneys involved in public interest lawsuits, including the United States Justice Department.”

Dominion also sued MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani for $1.3 billion.

Dominion said Powell’s actions “caused unprecedented harm” to the company in a lawsuit filed in January. “As a result of Powell’s defamatory falsehoods, which he spread with the help of like-minded allies and media outlets determined to promote a false preconceived narrative.

Dominion’s founder, employees, Georgia’s governor, and Georgia’s secretary of state have all been harassed and have received death threats, and Dominion has suffered tremendous damage, according to Dominion’s lawyers.

Powell was officially warned by Dominion’s lawyers to stop making comments about the company or face legal action, according to Dominion’s lawyers. Powell’s fundraising firm, “Defending the Republic, Inc.,” was also named as a defendant in the suit.

Separately, on March 1, the Supreme Court dismissed Powell’s lawsuits challenging the outcome in Arizona and Wisconsin, without commenting.
