Mike Lindell Is Still A Deadbeat


When people used to ask my grandfather what’s new, he’d reply, “Babies and money and I have neither.” If you ask Mike Lindell what’s new, he’d have a similar answer, but instead of babies, he would have to say lawyers.

Last month, a federal judge ordered Lindell to pay $5 million to Robert Zeidman, who won Lindell’s own challenge to prove him wrong regarding his “evidence” of the Big Lie. Lindell is still trying to welch on this debt and was just approved to proceed with an appeal, Lindell has until May 13 to file his brief as well as other documents, but he will have to do so with a brand new lawyer, since his previous two attorney up and quit on him, per this report from Law & Crime:

But with his appeal, Lindell appears undeterred, even though two of his previous attorneys on the case, Andrew Parker and Alec Beck of Parker Daniels Kibort, officially withdrew as his counsel on March 20, a notice filed in the U.S. District Court District of Minnesota shows.

He is now represented by Thomas Miller, a Wayzata, Minnesota, attorney.

Meanwhile, a schedule has now been set for the appeal: transcripts and appendices must be submitted by May 13 along with Lindell Management LLC’s brief.

But that’s not Lindell’s only legal trouble of late. His company, MyPillow, is on the receiving end of a court-ordered eviction for failing to pay at least two months rent and owing more than $200,000 to the warehouse owner. But not only did Lindell not pay his bill, it appears he skipped on his lease:

“MyPillow has more or less vacated but we’d like to do this by the book,” attorney Sara Filo, representing First Industrial, said in a hearing in eviction court Tuesday. “At this point there’s a representation that no further payment is going to be made under this lease, so we’d like to go ahead with finding a new tenant.”

Chief Judge Caroline Lennon in Scott County said the court would issue the order as soon as it’s submitted. MyPillow is still leasing a second manufacturing warehouse and outlet location in Shakopee.

Far be it for me to tell people what to do, but I know that if I was a business owner in Minnesota, I would not accept checks from this man and demand payment in advance. And even then, I would be reluctant to have anything to do with him.
