Dominion Voting Systems seeks $1.3 billion in damages in a defamation suit filed today against Sidney Powell. What do you expect to see through the course of this litigation and it’s eventual outcome?

From an NBC News article accessed 8 Jan 2021 @ 10:15 AM Pacific:

Dominion Voting Systems, one of the biggest election equipment manufacturers in the U.S. and the subject of numerous incoherent conspiracy theories about the 2020 election, has sued lawyer Sidney Powell, who pushed President Donald Trump’s attempts to overturn election results, for defamation.

[…]

“Powell falsely claimed that Dominion had rigged the election, that Dominion was created in Venezuela to rig elections for Hugo Chávez, and that Dominion bribed Georgia officials for a no-bid contract,” the lawsuit states.

[…]

Dominion is requesting damages of more than $1.3 billion, saying it has spent millions on security for its employees and on damage control to its reputation, and risks losing future business.

Strategically speaking, what do you think of Dominion’s decision to move forward with litigation?

What do you expect to come to light as a result of the forthcoming discovery?

Do you have any opinions towards the merits of the claims for which Powell is being sued? Do you anticipate those opinions changing either way if the courts rule in her favor or against her (without getting stuck on exact damages, etc.)?

Anything else you would like to add?

Thank you for sharing!
