(Reuters) – Three prominent allies of former U.S. President Donald Trump -Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell and Mike Lindell – on Wednesday lost a bid to dismiss multibillion dollar lawsuits saying their false claims about the 2020 presidential election defamed the Dominion voting equipment company.

U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols in Washington D.C. said in a written decision that lawsuits brought against the trio by Dominion Voting Systems should move forward. The company had said it was defamed because Trump and his supporters spread false claims that it rigged the election against him.

Nichols held that the First Amendment, which protects the right to free speech, offers “no blanket immunity” to Powell and Lindell in the lawsuits. Powell is a lawyer who later left the Trump campaign. Lindell is a conspiracy theorist who founded a pillow and bedding company.

The judge also rejected an argument by Giuliani, a former U.S. prosecutor and mayor of New York, that Dominion had not explained its request for money damages with enough specificity.

A Dominion spokesperson said: “We are pleased to see this process moving forward to hold (the defendants) accountable.”

Howard Kleinhendler, a lawyer for Powell, said they were disappointed with the decision. “However, we now look forward to litigating this case on its merits and proving that Ms. Powell’s statements were accurate and certainly not published with malice.”

Lawyers for Giuliani and Lindell did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Dominion has sought $1.3 billion in damages from the three, who supported Trump’s false claims that President Joe Biden could not have won the election in which the company’s voting machines were used.  Read more..

    • Dear cry baby, alternative universe idiot, The source is not Reuters, but the U.S. District Judge Carl Nichols….Duhhh! You people are so pitiful it is almost beyond comprehension. You rank up there with the Q-non crazy dad that stabbed his baby kids to death because of their ‘serpent DNA’…although in a different way, you are as far out as this guy was.
