Dominion Voting filed a defamation lawsuit against Powell seeking $1.3 billion in damages. Thus far, Powell’s efforts to get that suit dismissed have failed, and on Friday she filed a countersuit against the company.
In the new court filing, Powell alleged Dominion was “diverting attention from the failings of its election equipment, trying to change the ‘narrative’ that was exposing Dominion’s serious flaws and wrongdoing, and avoiding post-election inquiry into voting irregularities in the 2020 election” by suing her.
Powell alleged that the $1.3 billion suit against her is a “public-relations campaign to change the narrative, to hide the truth, and to discourage future challenges and negative reporting.” She called the amount of damages sought by Dominion “ludicrous” and an “abuse” of the legal system.
The new lawsuit filed by Powell appears at odds with an effort to dismiss Dominion’s case against her back in March. At that time, her attorneys argued that “no reasonable person” would believe her conspiracy theories and she should not be liable.
