Dominion Voting Systems reacts to Sidney Powell election lawsuit

The company provided a bulleted list of claims it says were not true – from foreign ties to hackability.

DENVER — A company that has been named in numerous election fraud theories – many with little or no evidence to back them – has taken aim at comments from one of its biggest detractors.

Dominion Voting Systems, which maintains voting machines in Georgia and other states, laid out a long list of claims by attorney Sidney Powell which it said are false – and provably so.

The company described many of Powell’s statements as part of a “bizarre election fraud conspiracy” that would have required unreasonably coordinated actions between thousands of people from the state to the local level – including themselves.

“This quite simply did not occur,” the company said in a statement released on Thursday.

“The allegations included in the draft complaint are baseless, senseless, physically impossible, and

A November 19, 2020 photo shows Sidney Powell speaking during a press conference at the Republican National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C. Twitter has labeled Powell’s website as “unsafe” following the attorney’s many accusations of widespread election fraud.

Judge weighing whether to dismiss lawsuit against website linked to sale of gun used to kill Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer

A federal judge in Milwaukee could make a decision in the coming weeks on a bid to dismiss a lawsuit filed against an online marketplace accused of facilitating the sale of the gun used in the 2018 killing of Chicago police Cmdr. Paul Bauer.

The organization Brady: United Against Gun Violence in February filed a lawsuit on behalf of Bauer’s family against Armslist, a website that connects buyers and sellers of firearms and advertises their weapons for sale. The lawsuit alleges Armslist created a forum that allowed its users to bypass background checks and other restrictions that could potentially make it easier for felons or others prohibited from owning guns to possess them.

On Oct. 29, the day after a Cook County judge sentenced Bauer’s convicted killer Shomari Legghette to life in prison, arguments were heard in federal court in Wisconsin on Armslist’s motion to dismiss the suit on grounds

SAS: No surrender in $79M lawsuit against World Programming Ltd.

Editor’s note: The Skinny blog is written by WRAL editor and cofounder Rick Smith.

CARY – World Programming Ltd. has proclaimed victory in its long-running legal battle with SAS. But no one at the privately held software giant in Cary has given up

“SAS is disappointed in the recent copyright decision against SAS, and intends to appeal it,” SAS spokesperson Shannon Heath tells WRAL TechWire.

“The recent copyright decision does not disturb any of the earlier rulings against WPL stemming from WPL’s breach of contract and fraud; nor does it change that WPL remains enjoined from licensing WPS to any new customer for use within the United States.”

Heath adds that SAS wants money – a lot of it.

Rick Smith, WRAL TechWire’s editor and a cofounder, writes The Skinny.

“WPL remains responsible for paying SAS nearly all of the $79 million award against WPL,” Heath says.

Apple must face lawsuit over Tim Cook’s China 2018 sales predictions

Shareholders who claim to have lost billions because Tim Cook failed to warn them of falling demand in China, have been told they can bring a class-action suit against Apple.

In 2019, Apple took the unusual step of revising its revenue guidance prediction down because of lower iPhone sales in China. However, a group of shareholders, led by the UK’s Norfolk County Council, now say that this was too late. They argue that CEO Tim Cook should have foreseen the issue and said so during Apple’s late 2018 financial earnings call.

During that November 2018 earnings call, Cook said that Apple was seeing what he described as sales pressure in some markets. However, he then stated that, “I would not put China in that category.”

According to Reuters, US District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers now says that the shareholders’ group, may bring a proposed class-action suit accusing Cook of

Apple Holders Can Press Lawsuit Over IPhone Demand, Court Rules

A U.S. District Court ruled on Wednesday that Apple  (AAPL) – Get Report shareholders could proceed with a lawsuit accusing Chief Executive Tim Cook of hiding a drop in Chinese demand for iPhones.

The holders of the Cupertino, Calif., technology titan claimed the concealment cost them billions of dollars. 

They are led by the Norfolk County, U.K., Council, which represents the Norfolk Pension Fund.

In a November 2018 conference call, Cook said that while Apple faced sales pressure in some emerging markets, “I would not put China in that category,” Reuters reports. 

But in 2019, when Apple slashed its revenue forecast by up to $9 billion, Cook said China was a factor, thanks to the economic slowdown sparked by its trade spat with the U.S.

China reportedly accounts for about 15% of Apple’s revenue.

Morningstar analyst Abhinav Davuluri offered a mixed assessment of Apple after its earnings report

Telegram has been ordered to pay over $620,000 in legal costs to Lantah, the firm Telegram sued over the use of the GRAM ticker. 

Lantah LLC, founded in 2017 by Daniel Jeffery, is a small company that wants to create a “global borderless marketplace” for cryptocurrencies.

Apple v. Epic lawsuit could open door to third-party payments — led by esports

Without releasing a single game, Apple is one of the largest gaming companies in the world, simply by taking a cut of all transactions on its ubiquitous platform, the iPhone.

But what kicked off as a skirmish months ago when Apple banned Microsoft’s xCloud iOS app offering access to games outside its App Store has evolved into a legal war with Epic Games over its popular battle royale, Fortnite, and a fight to maintain its generous slice of the entire industry — one that has caught the attention of regulators in the U.S. and the European Union.

In a preliminary injunction hearing between ‌Epic Games‌ and Apple on September 28, Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California recommended that Apple and ‌Epic Games‌ consider a trial by public jury. Ultimately, Epic and Apple agreed that Epic’s claims and Apple’s counterclaims should

Uber lawsuit accuses firm of ‘race discrimination’ over ratings

  • A former Uber driver has filed a lawsuit accusing the ride-hailing firm of “intentional race discrimination” by using customers’ star ratings to fire drivers.
  • Uber dismissed the driver, Thomas Liu, from San Diego, in 2015 because his star rating fell below 4.6, according to the lawsuit. Liu argues that passengers rated him unfairly because of his race.
  • The lawsuit estimates that the company has fired “likely hundreds, if not thousands” of nonwhite Uber drivers because of its star-rating policy.
  • “Uber’s use of this system to determine driver terminations constitutes race discrimination, as it is widely recognized that customer evaluations of workers are frequently racially biased,” the lawsuit said.
  • Uber told Business Insider that “ridesharing has greatly reduced bias for both drivers and riders, who now have fairer, more equitable access to work and transportation than ever before.”
