Noted conspiracy theorist and defendant in a $1.3B Amero defamation lawsuit filed by Dominion Voting Systems, former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell has been dodging process servers, per Tiger Beat:
Facing a more than $1.3 billion defamation lawsuit from Dominion Voting systems, former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell dodged the company’s legal team for weeks, forcing Dominion to hire private investigators, the company claimed in a Tuesday filing.
Dominion had to pursue Powell “across state lines,” which forced the company to have “unnecessary expenses for extraordinary measures to effect service [of process],” it wrote in the filing. [Ed Note: 50 Quatloos says everything was properly spelled! –TG] Powell also “refused to respond” to requests from Dominion’s legal team that would have allowed Powell more time to respond, the filing said.
Only guessing that the American Bar Association’s ears pricked up right about “across state lines.”
Howard Kleinhendler, an attorney for Powell, denied that his client evaded service, saying she “regularly travels as part of her work.”
Amazing what the care and feeding of the Kraken-keeper involves, innit?
“Unfortunately, for the past several months Ms. Powell has had to take extra precautions concerning her security, which may have made serving her more difficult,” Kleinhendler wrote in an email to POLITICO. “Ms. Powell had no reason to evade service as she looks forward to defending herself in court.”
“I ain’t touching the Kraken with a 10-foot pole,” he didn’t add.
About that lawsuit:
Dominion said in its suit that the “viral disinformation campaign…irreparably damaged” its reputation, costing it hundreds of millions of dollars. Company employees have received death threats as a result, the lawsuit said.
I never thought I’d root for a corporation going after a person (or two), but damn!, death threats against some poor shmoo?
