It was a good day in court for Dominion Voting Systems as the Denver, Colorado-based company won an appeal in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
The high court ruled along party lines, 5-2, to overturn a decision by the Commonwealth Court that said Dominion could not intervene in a wider case involving an inspection of its equipment used by heavily Republican Fulton County in 2020’s election. “Intervention may be granted to parties whose rights and interests may be irreparably harmed as a consequence of the progression of the case.”
The decision ensures that any inspection of Dominion voting machines as any part of inquiries into the 2020 presidential election be conducted by a federally accredited laboratory used by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency.
Dominion Voting Systems serves 14 of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties: Armstrong, Bedford, Carbon, Clarion, Crawford, Erie, Fayette, Fulton, Jefferson, Luzerne, Montgomery, Pike, Warren, and York. Dominion notes that the 14 counties collectively produced 1.3 million votes with 52 percent or 676,000 going to Donald Trump.
The company has been the target of many right-wing theories about the election supposedly being stolen from Trump. Dominion has filed numerous lawsuits against those actively promoting the theories, including Fox News, NewsMax, OneAmerica News, Mike Lindell and Rudy Giuliani.
