Giuliani was accused of defamation in connection with his statements about the falsification of the election results.
On Wednesday, Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani asked a court to dismiss a $ 1.3 billion libel suit related to his false claims of rigging the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Giuliani’s lawyer said Dominion Voting Systems ‘ lawsuit should be dismissed because it failed to substantiate its claim for monetary damages properly.
The motion says Giuliani denies defamation of Dominion and is prepared to present a compelling case in his own defense if the case is not closed.
Trump and his allies have denied that he was defeated in the election for two months, claiming that the vote was rigged.
Dominion’s lawsuit alleges that Giuliani spread false information that led millions of people to believe that the company stole their votes.
Dominion, founded in 2002 and based in Denver, is a major manufacturer of automatic ballot boxes. During the 2020 election, its equipment was used in more than two dozen states.
Giuliani claims that the Dominion lawsuit is intended to intimidate him and deprive him of his right to free speech.
The company has filed similar libel lawsuits pending against Sidney Powell, another former Trump campaign lawyer, and businessman Mike Lindell of My Pillow. Like Giuliani, they deny defaming Dominion.
