Dershowitz is a Harvard Law School professor and worked as a lawyer for Trump during his very first impeachment trial.

Dershowitz informed Newsweek on Monday that he’s working as a consultant to the law firm representing Lindell. He also clarified that he’s just consulting on the case’s First Amendment concerns.

In February, Dershowitz informed Newsmax host Greg Kelly that Dominion would have trouble proving their case against Lindell.

” Look, whether Lindell was right or wrong, he can reveal his views, and this belongs of the general public argument,” Dershowitz said. “I don’t believe unless they can demonstrate that with malice he deliberately, wilfully, knowingly disparaged them, I don’t think they’re going to get any pillows out of this.”

Dershowitz told Newsweek that if Rule won, it would “be a catastrophe for the First Modification.”

” Remember too that the First Change does not just give Lindell the right to reveal his views,” Dershowitz said. “It offers 50 million people the right to hear his views.”

Rule stated that Lindell’s claims had actually inflicted damage to the business’s credibility and business operations. The business stated it also had to invest money on security to safeguard personnel who received death dangers as an outcome of Lindell’s claims.

He declares that more than 20 merchants have actually now pulled his products from sale. A few of the sellers state they pulled his products due to low sales rather than as a repercussion of his actions.

Dominion’s claim against Lindell looks for over $651 million in punitive damages and an additional $6517 million in compensation over making baseless claims. The filing likewise states that the business wants an injunction to have Lindell’s “incorrect and defamatory” remarks about Rule eliminated from different media sources.

The cash looked for by Dominion is approximately 4 times MyPillow’s annual revenue. MyPillow’s profits exceeded $300 million in 2019, Lindell informed The New York Times earlier this year.
