Trump lawyer Giuliani faces $US1.3b lawsuit over ‘big lie’ election fraud claims

A voting machine company has filed a $US1.3 billion ($1.7 billion) lawsuit against former president Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani, accusing him of defamation in what it called his “big lie” campaign about widespread fraud in the presidential election, court documents show.

The Denver-based company, Dominion Voting Systems, filed an earlier lawsuit against Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell, whom the company also accused of spreading false conspiracy theories about the election that Trump lost to Democrat Joe Biden.

A senior Dominion employee, Eric Coomer, also filed a defamation lawsuit against the Trump campaign, saying he had been driven into hiding because of death threats from Trump supporters.

Giuliani and his lawyer, Robert Costello, did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Monday, local time.
