Supreme Court Thwarts Mike Lindell’s Attempt To Evade Defamation Lawsuit

The Supreme Court has denied a petition from MyPillow CEO and Trump’s big lie promoter Mike Lindell to review a lower court ruling that allowed a defamation lawsuit against him to move forward, NBC News reported Monday.

According to the news outlet, “the justices’ decision not to hear the case means a federal judge’s ruling in August 2021 that allowed the lawsuit to move forward remains in place. Dominion sued Lindell and MyPillow in February 2021, claiming $1.3 billion in damages and alleging that Lindell purposely pushed the ‘big lie’ that Trump won the 2020 election.”

The report added: “Lindell repeatedly echoed baseless claims that Dominion’s machines manipulated vote counts to ensure that Joe Biden defeated Trump.”

As noted by NBC News, “the claims have been widely debunked. In the lawsuit, Dominion argues that Lindell knew his claims were false, while Lindell’s lawyers say he genuinely believes them.”

In addition to peddling false claims about Dominion, Lindell has repeatedly told his followers that the Supreme Court would “reinstate” Trump as president, and even created a “petition” to the high court for the former president’s reinstatement.

Failing in his predictions, Lindell now claims that there is a “four-year statute of limitations” on reinstating Trump to the White House, so “it could happen any time.”
