The five-judge panel said he had made false and misleading statements in court about voter fraud as he represented Trump in his post-election lawsuits .

Nessel asked a federal court in January to sanction Powell and three other attorneys over a lawsuit in Michigan that requested the state overturn its elections results, claiming fraud in President Joe Biden's defeat of former President Donald Trump. In her filing to the federal court this week, Nessel said Powell 's Powell , who was hired and then fired by former President Trump, claimed Dominion and Smartmatic, which is also suing her , used their voting machines to falsify votes in the 2020 presidential election. Her law firm filed lawsuits regarding 2020 election fraud in Michigan, Arizona, Georgia, and

Dominion Voting Systems on Friday sued lawyer Sidney Powell , alleging she defamed the company. Powell made a series of "wild accusations" that are "demonstrably false," Dominion said in its lawsuit , which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The suit on Friday appeared to be the first one filed by the company in regards to allegations against its equipment and intentions in the 2020 election. Dominion says its machines and/or software are used by 28 states. A Dominion employee last month sued President Donald Trump's campaign, arguing it spread false theories

Powell emerged a key figure in the spread of election conspiracy theories last year, falsely claiming that Dominion Voting Systems tilted the US election to boost now-President Joe Biden.

She also alleged - without evidence - that Dominion secretly aided a rival election-technology company, Smartmatic, and had links to the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

Dominion filed a defamation lawsuit against Powell earlier this year in pursuit of $1.3 billion in damages. Powell has been unable to get the lawsuit tossed in court and subsequently filed her counterclaim against company on Friday.

In her filing against Dominion, Powell called the company's demand for $1.3 billion "ludicrous," and said the company's legal action was "diverting attention from the failings of its election equipment, trying to change the 'narrative' that was exposing Dominion's serious flaws and wrongdoing, and avoiding post-election inquiry into voting irregularities in the 2020 election."

Dominion Voting Systems is suing Sidney Powell , a Texas lawyer who pushed a false conspiracy theory that the company helped President Biden defeat former President Donald Trump, for defamation, but it hasn't be easy tracking her down to serve her with the .3 billion, the company said in a court filing But "Ms. Powell had no reason to evade service as she looks forward to defending herself in court ," he added.

Dominion Voting Systems is suing former Trump campaign lawyer Sidney Powell for her months of false claims against the company. Powell , who continued stumping for President Trump even after his campaign tried to distance itself from her , has alleged without any proof that Dominion machines somehow Dominion filed a lawsuit against Powell on Friday seeking .3 billion for damages caused by her defamatory conspiracy peddling. "Acting in concert with allies and media outlets that were determined to promote a false preconceived narrative about the 2020 election, Powell launched

She is seeking $10 million in damages.

In May, Powell's lawyers argued that their client was being unfairly targeted among individuals who falsely claimed that Dominion conspired to alter the election results against Trump. Their filing, which was intended to support a motion to dismiss the case, argued that Dominion lacked the standing to sue Powell.

In August, a federal judge denied motions by Powell, former Trump personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, and MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell in seeking to toss defamation lawsuits brought against them by Dominion.

Despite her claims, Powell has so far been unable to validate any of the election theories or irregularities that she claims were prevalent in the 2020 election, and state election officials have roundly dismissed her accusations.

Powell, whom Trump brought on to his legal team during the turbulent post-election period in November 2020, was eventually purged from the campaign team. But just weeks later, The New York Times reported that Trump had invited Powell to the White House to discuss the possibility of her becoming a special counsel investigating voter fraud.
