The motion characterizes Dominion’s complaint as threatening “the deeply enshrined protections for the free press” and outlines two key reasons for dismissal.
Dominion Voting Systems is adding a new team of lawyers as it prepares for its current lawsuits — and another potential round. Cable networks Newsmax and One American News Network, which aired post election conspiracy theories, are among the top targets for Dominion’s next round of lawsuits, according to two people familiar with the matter.
Dominion Voting Systems claims the cable news giant falsely claimed in an effort to boost faltering ratings that the voting company had rigged the 2020 election.
Eric Coomer, security director at the Colorado-based Dominion Voting Systems, said he wants his life back after being named in false charges as a key actor in “rigging” the election for President-elect Joe Biden. There has been no evidence that the election was rigged. His lawsuit, filed Tuesday in district court in Denver County, Colorado, names the Trump campaign, lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, conservative columnist Michelle Malkin, the website Gateway Pundit, Colorado conservative activist Joseph Oltmann, and conservative media outlets Newsmax and One America News Network.
