Other conservative media outlets like Newsmax and One American News Network – which also broadcast post-election conspiracy theories and is a top target for Dominion’s next round of trials, according to two people familiar with the matter. Justin Nelson – a Susman attorney who assists in Dominion’s defamation cases against Sidney Powell, Mike Lindell, and Fox News – represented Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobb against a lawsuit filed by Lin Wood, Sidney Powell and other lawyers against Arizona election officials against Kraken to overturn Joe Biden’s victory in the state A judge who “put the results of the 2020 general election aside” included many of the false allegations Dominion said was defamation, including that All Dominion uses software from Smartmatic, a separate electoral technology companies, and Dominion was “founded by foreign oligarchs and dictators to secure computerized voting and election rigging” to help Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez steal an election in the country. At the time, Nelson called the lawsuit an “attack on democracy “and argued that Wood, Powell and others” there s used federal judicial systems to undermine the rule of law and obtain breathtaking, startling and unprecedented relief to overthrow them. ” Will of the people. “Susman’s attorneys also have litigation experience on a number of high profile defamation cases. Davida Brook, who signed the case against Powell, Giuliani and Lindell, previously represented Melanie Kohler, a Los Angeles woman who accused director Brett Ratner of rape in a Facebook post that has since been deleted. Brook represented Kohler after Ratner filed a defamation lawsuit against her. Ratner then withdrew his lawsuit. Brook also represented actress Amber Heard, who was sued by ex-husband Johnny Depp after writing a Washington Post statement that Depp alleged falsely implied “domestic violence against her” targets or potential Dominion’s legal wrath targets have taken cover or even deleted articles or covered their tracks. Others have reliably remained defiant, claiming that a legal battle and the associated discovery would instead lead to the humiliation of Dominion. Lindell, who was also a major funder of pro-Trump attempts to undo President Biden’s crucial 2020 victory, previously told The Daily Beast that he had hired private investigators to “shit” and find out about foreign entanglements on both Dominion as well as on Smartmatic, and that he was hoping to counterclaims in the coming weeks. People familiar with the matter say the company’s legal team had still not ruled out targeting ex-President Trump, but a final decision had not yet been made on whether to open that can of worms to the former free world leader wanted. During his tenure, Trump personally advocated the same conspiracy theories and lies that electoral technology executives and their attorneys claim have seriously and unfoundedly damaged their businesses and put them at risk with numerous death threats. Former President Trump is still facing an avalanche of separate lawsuits, investigations, and criminal investigations, including those based on suspected sexual assault, his family-run business empire, the bloody attack on the Capitol on January 6, and his broader anti-democratic efforts in the wake of the 2020 election. Over the past few months, Trump – who no longer enjoys the legal protection that comes with presidency – has privately joked that his enemies are investigating and “sue me for the rest of my life.” Read more at The Daily Beast Get our top stories to your inbox every day.
