Dominion files lawsuits against Newsmax, One America News Network, Overstock CEO

Dominion Voting Systems has filed defamation lawsuits against Newsmax, One America News Network and former Overstock CEO Patrick Byrne over allegations that the company had a role in rigging the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Each lawsuit seeks more than $1.6 billion in damages. “OAN helped create and cultivate an alternate reality where up is down, pigs have wings, and Dominion engaged in a colossal fraud to steal the presidency from Donald Trump by rigging the vote,” Dominion writes in its suit against One American News Network.

The Newsmax lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of Delaware, and the claims against One America parent Herring Networks and Byrne were filed in U.S. District Court in the District of Columbia. Also named in the One America complaint were owners Robert Herring and Charles Herring and One America personalities Chanel Rion and Christina Bobb.

Newsmax stood by its reporting, saying in an emailed statement, “While Newsmax has not reviewed the Dominion filing, in its coverage of the 2020 Presidential elections, Newsmax simply reported on allegations made by well-known public figures, including the President, his advisors and members of Congress. Dominion’s action today is a clear attempt to squelch such reporting and undermine a free press.”
