Dominion Voting Systems filed another round of lawsuits today, alleging that the company was defamed by conservative news channels Newsmax and One America News Network when they aired segments that claimed the 2020 US election was rigged. Dominion also filed a defamation suit against Patrick Byrne, the founder and former CEO of Overstock.com, who has peddled election-fraud conspiracy theories.
In each lawsuit, Dominion is seeking more than $1.7 billion in damages for lost profits and expenses incurred by the election-rigging claims. The new lawsuits come on top of several more filed earlier this year against other parties, including Fox News, Rudy Giuliani, and Sidney Powell, who are all defending themselves.
Dominion’s lawyers didn’t pull any punches in today’s filing.
