Mike Lindell has stated from the beginning of his campaign to replace the vote tabulation machines used in US elections, which have been despised by both Democrats and Republicans for many election cycles, that he would pay any price and become penniless to raise awareness about the dangers he perceives in our current election process.
And he may have the opportunity to become a historical martyr for his cause, since the US Supreme Court has taken up a large lawsuit against him that might cost him billions of dollars as punishment for reforming the nation according to what he has learnt.
Monday, the Associated Press reported the following court action:
“The Supreme Court says it won’t intervene in a lawsuit in which Dominion Voting Systems accused MyPillow chief executive Mike Lindell of defamation for allegedly falsely accusing the company of rigging the 2020 presidential election against former President Donald Trump.
No vote count was made public. Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson did not take part in consideration of the case.
As is typical, the high court did not say anything Monday about the case in rejecting it among a host of others. Monday is the first day the high court is hearing arguments after taking a summer break.”
However, Lindell must face Dominion-related accusations.
Monday, the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) rejected a last-ditch effort by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell to defend against a $1.3 billion defamation case.
In August of last year, a judge from a lower court ruled that the lawsuit may proceed. Lindell had challenged this decision, but a federal appeals court ruled that his petition was untimely. The Supreme Court declined to consider this matter.
In that ruling, Judge Carl Nichols wrote that “in addition to alleging that Lindell’s claims are inherently improbable, that his sources are unreliable, and that he has failed to acknowledge the validity of countervailing evidence, Dominion has alleged numerous instances in which Lindell told audiences to purchase MyPillow products after making his claims of election fraud and providing MyPillow promotional codes related to those theories.”
The company “has adequately alleged that Lindell made his claims knowing that they were false or with reckless disregard for the truth,” Nichols wrote.

The SCOTUS decision to press on- on Lindell will kick off a new term for the high court, which is sure to be heavily scrutinized by both political sides, so the Supreme Court deferred to a lower court decision that allowed the Dominion lawsuit to proceed and made in August 2021.
“Lindell is being sued by Dominion Voting Systems for expressing claims that the company’s machines, which were used throughout the country on Election Day 2020, were rigged in favor of President Joe Biden,” the Daily Mail reported, adding: CONTINUE READING…
