A judge in Washington D.C. has granted MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell‘s request to keep his address out of court documents related to his legal battle with Dominion Voting Systems after his lawyers said he’s getting death threats, Insider reports.
Lawyers for Lindell says he’s reported at least seven people to Minnesota police because they had “directly threatened Mr. Lindell’s life or physical safety,” including one person who allegedly called MyPillow’s call center and detailed a plan to kidnap and decapitate Lindell.
“Lindell reasonably believes that publicizing his residential address would, in all likelihood, put him at risk of imminent harm,” Douglas Daniels and Trey Mayfield, Lindell’s defense counsels, wrote in a court filing.
MyPillow deputy general counsel Jeremiah Pilon said that in December a “threatening box” was delivered to MyPillow’s headquarters in Chaska, Minnesota.
“The box was open on top and contained two MyPillow bed pillows that had been slit open and splattered with a red-colored substance intended to look like blood,” Pilon wrote, adding that audio recordings of some of the threats could be provided to the court.
