MyPillow Inc. Chief Executive Officer Mike Lindell should be sanctioned for using the courts to spread the “fiction” that the 2020 U.S. presidential election was rigged, Smartmatic Corp. told a judge in seeking dismissal of his $2 billion racketeering lawsuit against it.

Smartmatic said in a court filing Wednesday in Washington that it will seek sanctions and legal fees against the CEO over his Dec. 1 lawsuit, in which he claims it conspired with another election technology company, Dominion Voting Systems Inc., to flip votes away from former president Donald Trump.
