Voting technology company Smartmatic filed a $2.7 billion lawsuit against attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, as well as Fox News and some of the network’s hosts, accusing them of greviously harming the company by claiming it was involved in widespread election fraud.
The firm accused Giuliani and Powell, close allies of former President Trump, of “creating a story about Smartmatic” and said the Fox Corporation, Fox News and the anchors Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro joined “the conspiracy to defame and disparage Smartmatic and its election technology and software.”
“With this action, Smartmatic says: Enough. Facts matter. Truth matters. Defendants engaged in a conspiracy to spread disinformation about Smartmatic. They lied. And they did so knowingly and intentionally. Smartmatic seeks to hold them accountable for those lies and for the damage that their lies have caused,” Smartmatic said in the suit.
“The story turned neighbor against neighbor,” the complaint added, referencing baseless claims that Smartmatic tech manipulated the vote in the presidential election. “The story led a mob to attack the U.S. Capitol.”
