Dominion Voting Systems sued Newsmax and One America News Network on Tuesday, accusing the far-right media organizations of defamation for pushing far-fetched conspiracy theories that the election technology company rigged the 2020 presidential election.

The lawsuit against OAN accuses it of engaging "in a race to the bottom with Fox and other outlets such as Newsmax to spread false and manufactured stories about election fraud."

"This barrage of lies by the defendants and others have caused and continue to cause severe damage to our company our customers and our employees," Dominion CEO John Poulos said in a press conference Tuesday. "We have no choice but to hold those responsible to account."

Dominion also sued Patrick Byrne, the former CEO of Overstock and a staunch ally of former President Donald Trump, saying he pushed election conspiracy theories as well.
