The Supreme Court rejected an appeal from MyPillow on Monday CEO Mike Lindell to consider the libel suit brought against him by the voting machine company Dominion Voting Systems.
Driving the news: Dominion Voting Systems filed a $1.3 billion lawsuit against Lindell in February 2021, alleging that Lindell — an ally of former President Donald Trump — helped promote the baseless conspiracy theory that the company’s voting machines were rigged in favor of President Biden in the 2020 election.
The big picture: The Supreme Court’s decision not to take up the case means that a August 2021 decision by a federal judgedenial of a motion by Lindell to dismiss the case and allow it to proceed will stand.
