Once again, when put to the test, election fraud claims fail spectacularly (mypillow v2.0)

quote:

Yesterday, a federal district court judge dismissed MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's counterclaims against election machine manufacturers U.S. Dominion and Smartmatic. The counterclaims were filed in the companies' defamation suit against Lindell, who had accused the firms of stealing the 2020 election with rigged election machines. In addition, Judge Nichols imposed sanctions on Lindell, given the "groundless" and "frivolous" nature of his claims. Last fall, Judge Nichols had also denied Lindell's attempt to dismiss the defamation claims.


From the opinion:

quote:

Smartmatic moves to sanction Lindell and his previous counsel under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11 for filing a "frivolous case." . . . In particular, Smartmatic argues that Lindell and his counsel should be sanctioned for: (1) "predicat[ing] [Lindell's] claims on allegations that have been disproven by credible, publicly available sources and rejected by other federal district courts," (2) for filing "claims [that] lack a plausible basis in the law," and (3) for "fil[ing] suit to undermine confidence in the 2020 U.S. election." . . . Smartmatic further contends that "Lindell and his counsel must be held jointly and severally liable for the fees Smartmatic has expended defending itself and preparing the instant motion." . . .

The Court will grant Smartmatic's motion in part. The Court agrees with Smartmatic that Lindell has asserted at least some groundless claims. . . . In particular, the Court concludes that at the very least Lindell's claim against Smartmatic under the Support or Advocacy Clause falls on the frivolous side of the line (other claims do too). As a result, the Court orders Lindell and his previous counsel to pay some of the fees and costs Smartmatic has incurred defending itself and moving for sanctions under Rule 11. See Reynolds v. U.S. Capitol Police Bd., 357 F. Supp. 2d 19, 23 (D.D.C. 2004) ("The test under Rule 11 is an objective one: that is, whether a reasonable inquiry would have revealed there was no basis in law or fact for the asserted claim."); . . . But the Court requires additional briefing on the amount of appropriate costs under the circumstances.


Also notable:

For those who care about such things, Judge Nichols clerked for Justice Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court and was appointed to the federal bench by Donald Trump in 2019.

Put to the test? Was every Dominon and Smartmatic theft machines fully inspected and audited without interference? That would be the only test

Are you sure about that?

I have seen nothing to indicate that they can.

There is some level of fraud in EVERY election, and I have never seen CWill make any suggestion to the contrary. Could you please provide a link? TIA.

There it is. Oh well, move on then. Let's just keep the voting alive until the desired outcome is reached. Let's just shut down the voting counts while trending one way and then it shifts the other once it "restarts".

Seriously? THAT is what you are worried about right now? That??

Mothers are having to scrounge for formula. The admin should have known this would be a problem last November. Biden just last week imposed the defense production act on it after weeks of vocal concern from everyone. Just. Last. Week.

Fuel is through the roof costing the poor and forcing them to make decisions about eating or going to work. Remember the poor?? Who you said can’t get an ID because of cost? Member? Member when Biden came right into office slashing leases, slashing pipelines, and raising government royalties on remaining leases?

Inflation is also striking the poor. But it’s transitory. Remember? Were they lying or incompetent? It’s either 1 or 2. I know you can’t answer. So just don’t.

The market has been in free fall due to uncertainty and inflation. Trillions of dollars of value of regular people’s retirement has been lost this far. Thus far.

A recession is said to be imminent if not already here.

Biden just claimed a hot war is happening with China If they invade. Russia is threatening retaliation if others join NATO. Remember when it was Trump that was going to start WWIII?? Remember?

And have you heard from your elementary school geography teaching VP? Remember. Ukraine is a country…. Russia is a country… Russia is bigger than Ukraine…. Where the hell is she at? What is she doing?

And you come here with Mike Lindell garbage??? Seriously??? You are just admitting inadvertently through this that this admin is a disaster.

Good to see all these Libatards up in here as we watch your fantastic selection for president and his outstanding cabinet fall on their faces. You voted for this bs and now we are all living it. I give it a few more months then China goes in on Taiwan maybe your democrat friends can print up another 40 Billion for them also. LOL at you clowns as this country goes down the toilet.
