A class action lawsuit is about to be filed against Dominion Voting Systems and related entities alleging that the election agent has infringed on the rights of ordinary Americans “under the First Amendment to participate in the public debate regarding election integrity and security.”
Mike Lindell, who has his own separate lawsuit against Dominion, announced the news on “War Room” on Thursday, and said the lawsuit should be filed in U.S. District Court in Colorado by Friday.
The defendants are US Dominion, Inc., Dominion Voting Systems, Inc., and Dominion Voting Systems Corporation, which are charged in the complaint with trying “to intimidate Americans by waging and threatening to wage Lawsuit Warfare (“Lawfare”) against anyone that speaks about anything related to Dominion’s possible role in election integrity and security.”
Plaintiffs include JENNIFER L. COOPER, EUGENE DIXON, FRANCIS J. CIZMAR, ANNA PENNALA, KATHLEEN DAAVETTILA, CINTHIA BRUNELL, KARYN CHOPJIAN, and ABBIE HELMINEN, individually, and on behalf of all others similarly situated.
The lawsuit alleges that the plaintiffs were sent threatening letters by Dominion with the intention of silencing them and others from public debate about the election process.
An interesting element of the lawsuit is that Dominion is being sued for infringing free speech rights because it operates in the guise of the government and must therefore protect the First Amendment.
“Dominion has not waged its Lawfare campaign as only a corporate citizen, but also as a state¬actor, i.e., the government,” says the lawsuit. “Dominion is a state–actor because States across the United States have outsourced their constitutional obligation of running elections by deferring to Dominion’s professional experience and contracting out the administration, collection, counting, recording, and auditing of ballot results through voting technology, software, and thousands of hours of technical and election services.”
It should be noted that this lawsuit is not about whether or not there was election fraud in 2020, but rather about whether the American public has the right to talk about the possibility of election fraud. Here’s how the lawsuit puts it:
“This lawsuit is not about who is right or wrong regarding the merits of the election or claims of fraud or mistake. It is about whether these issues are worthy of debate under the First Amendment, and whether a corporation that has participated in the election as a state-actor has the power to chill such debate by employing intimidating ‘Lawfare’ tactics.”
