Newsmax Media Inc. said its extensive reporting on Donald Trump’s election-conspiracy theory is justified in part by the former president’s continued claim that the 2020 election was rigged.

Newsmax made the argument in seeking dismissal of a lawsuit filed in August by Dominion Voting Systems Inc., which says the news outlet knowingly or recklessly broadcast false claims that Dominion’s machines flipped millions of votes away from Trump.
