MyPillow Inc. sued voting-machine maker Dominion Voting Systems on Monday, a counter move after Dominion sued the bedding company and its chief executive, Mike Lindell, for defamation.
MyPillow’s suit seeks more than $1.6 billion in damages.
In the complaint, the privately held company says that it is suing to protect free speech and to remedy harms that MyPillow says it has suffered. “This lawsuit is brought in support of the marketplace of ideas and to remedy the grave harm that has been suffered by MyPillow as a result of Dominion’s suppression of speech and attacks on the Company,” the suit states.
MyPillow’s suit says there is a difference between statements made by Mr. Lindell and the company.
