Lindell has now been dealt another legal blow as a Minnesota Federal Judge has denied his motion to dismiss the defamation suit against him forcing him to face the suit, US News and World Report reports.

Judge Wilhelmina M. Wright dismissed the motion finding that ample evidence exists to show that Lindell ignored publicly available information that contradicted his claims.

The lawsuit against Lindell is brought by Smartmatic USA, Corp the company who made the voting machines Lindell quesitoned.

In Lindell’s defense his team argued that the statements made by Lindell were not “inherently improbable.”

The Lindell team pointed to publicly available information that showed issues with voting machines.

Fox News and Newsmax are also being sued for the claims made by Dominion Voting Systems for comments made by those networks following the 2020 election.
