Fox News Anchors File Motions to Dismiss Smartmatic Defamation Lawsuit

Attorneys for Fox News filed individual motions Thursday night to dismiss Smartmatic’s defamation lawsuit on behalf of Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro, three anchors who have been named in the matter in which the voting technology company is seeking a whopping $2.7 billion.

The three motions were filed by Kirkland & Ellis, the law firm representing Fox News in the matter. Smartmatic, a maker of technology used in election tabulation and voting, last week filed a lawsuit in Supreme Court in the State of New York, citing efforts made on Fox News programs to disparage the company’s business. Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell, two attorneys who had been working for President Donald Trump in his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 election that resulted in victory for President Joe Biden, are also named in the suit.
