A lawsuit against Dominion Voting Systems, one of the top voting machine companies in the U.S., accuses the company of waging an all-out campaign to silence its critics.
The lawsuit argues they have intimidated critics and violated laws that are typically used to prosecute gangs, cartels, and the Mafia.
High-profile attorneys Alan Dershowitz and Kurt Olsen argue that Dominion’s “cease-and-desist” letter campaign was “an indiscriminate tactic meant to intimidate critics into silence.”
The lawsuit alleges that the campaign violates laws against such coordinated behavior in the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act (RICO) Act.
The Colorado Gazette reported, “The named plaintiffs to the class action lawsuit, all of whom are in Michigan, allege Dominion has violated the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization Act — typically used to prosecute gangs, cartels and the Mafia — by sending cease and desist letters to those who defamed the company.”
The case is being overseen by U.S. District Court Chief Judge Philip A. Brimmer.
Here’s more on the background on the case and the cease-and-desist letters via Becker News:
“Eight of the state’s challengers from the 2020 presidential election said they received cease and desist letters from Dominion after they inquired about potential irregularities in the election despite never mentioning Dominion in their formal challenges,” the Insider reported.
“In the letters, Dominion instructed the challengers to stop speaking about Dominion and to preserve any communications with members of the Trump campaign, Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, Jenna Ellis, and other Trump attorneys,” the report continued.
“The company has sent over 200 cease and desist letters in total to people challenging the company’s integrity and quality of its election services,” the report went on. “Other than changing the name of the person the letters are addressed to, each of the cease and desist letters provided as evidence in the new lawsuit appears to be identical and fails to mention any of the election challenges brought forth by any of the plaintiffs.”
“While the challengers were never sued by Dominion itself, they allege the cease and desist letters instilled a sense of fear for their businesses, safety, and even an unborn child,” the Insider added.
In a separate case against Fox News, Dominion Voting System was able to score a legal victory of sorts by establishing that the network’s coverage of election fraud “may have been inaccurate,” according to a CNN Business report.
“Judge Eric Davis of the Delaware Superior Court declined to dismiss Dominion Voting System’s lawsuit against Fox News in a significant ruling Thursday,” CNN reported.
