In January of this year, Dominion Voting Systems filed defamation lawsuits against Donald Trump’s former lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, and Sidney Powell, a former member of Trump’s legal team who was disavowed by the Trump campaign. Both Giuliani and Powell pushed false allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, claiming that Dominion’s voting technology was used to steal the election from Trump. Dominion is seeking at least $1.3 billion in damages.
According to court records, Dominion’s lawsuit against Powell arose “from statements made by Sidney Powell, who—acting in concert with allies and media outlets determined to promote a false preconceived narrative about the 2020 election—caused unprecedented harm.”
Similarly, Dominion’s statement on Giuliani’s defamation suit, per court records, claims that “he [Giuliani] 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.”
A viral social media post claims “Dominion lost their lawsuits against Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell.”
