The Court declined to hear an appeal from the pro-Trump businessman who is named in a defamation suit from voting machine company, Dominion Voting Systems.
Dominion, which manufactures machines used to administer elections in several states, sued the Trump supporter over his claims the company helped rig the 2020 election in favor of Democrats. The voting machine company has leveled a $1.3 billion defamation suit against Lindell and other Trump supporters such as former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and Trump attorney Sidney Powell.
In the months following the 2020 election Lindell, among other Trump supporters publicly claimed Dominion and another voting company Smartmatic Voting Systems helped rig the election, however, no evidence has been brought to corroborate the allegations.
Lindell’s request to dismiss the case was declined by a lower court in August, and the Supreme Court’s decision not to hear his appeal means the lawsuit can proceed.
