(REUTERS)Dominion Voting Systems says that ex Trump lawyer Sidney Powell was pursued across state lines as she evaded being served with the defamation lawsuit the company filed against her.In response to a motion by Ms Powell for an extension of time to answer or respond to the complaint, Dominion’s lawyers said that they do not oppose the motion “as a professional courtesy” but want the record to reflect two points.First, that Ms Powell refused to respond to requests about executing waivers of service of process, that would have extended the time for her to respond to the complaint.And second that the former Trump lawyer evaded being served for weeks, forcing Dominion to incur unnecessary expenses for the extraordinary measures needed to serve Ms Powell, including hiring private investigators and pursuing her across state lines.Dominion is suing Ms Powell for $1.3bn claiming she defamed the company with conspiracy theories in the weeks after the election.In Monday’s court filing Ms Powell and her defence team requested an extension until 22 March.Ms Powell who became notable for saying her lawsuits challenging the election were akin to “releasing the Kraken” and for spreading conspiracy theories made the company the centre of her legal challenges to the 2020 election results.The lawyer claimed that agents from Iran and China had compromised Dominion voting machines so that they would change Donald Trump supporters votes to votes for Joe Biden.She also claimed that deceased Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez had some influence over the alleged software that would one day be used to defeat Mr Trump.”Powell falsely claimed that Dominion had rigged the election, that Dominion was created in Venezuela to rig elections for Hugo Chvez, and that Dominion bribed Georgia officials for a no bid contract,” the lawsuit reads.Dominion is seeking $650m in reputational damages and another $650m for punitive damages.Prior to the lawsuit, Dominion sent Ms Powell a cease and desist letter threatening legal action.Rather than heeding the warning, Ms Powell doubled down and tweeted out that she would “retract nothing” because she had “evidence” that Dominion was committing fraud.Read More’Few lawsuits breathe more lies than this one’: Lawyers eviscerate Sidney Powell election lawsuitTwitter bans Trump allies Michael Flynn and Sidney Powell in QAnon purgeTrump lawyer Sidney Powell sued for $1.3bn for defamation by Dominion Voting SystemsSidney Powell retweets claim that she would indict half a dozen people by January if she were special counsel’It’s sad and pathetic’: Trump insiders say the president’s plans with Sidney Powell leave them baffled and scaredSky NewsCOVID 19: Government failed to contact 375,000 to tell them to shield, watchdog findsThe government had difficulty contacting hundreds of thousands of clinically vulnerable people who were told to shield at the start of the pandemic, a watchdog has discovered.
