Did Dominion Voting Systems lose its lawsuits against Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell? No, that's not true: At the time of writing, court records show that both defamation cases remain open.

The post did not provide any sourcing to back up its claim.
On January 8, 2021, Dominion filed a defamation suit against Powell, a former attorney for Donald Trump, claiming she caused "unprecedented harm" by arguing the 2020 election was rigged.
Dominion CEO John Poulos said in a statement:
Lies were told about government election officials, elections workers, and Dominion Voting Systems. Those lies have consequences. They have served to diminish the credibility of U.S. elections. They have subjected officials and Dominion employees to harassment and death threats. And they have severely damaged the reputation of our company.
Today is the first step to restore our good name and faith in elections by holding those responsible to account. We intend to pursue justice vigorously to its rightful end.
Roughly two weeks later, Dominion filed a similar suit against Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and personal attorney for Trump.
Both complaints can be read by clicking on links on Dominion's website here.
To check the status of each case, Lead Stories looked up court documents on PACER (Public Access to Court Electronic Records). The last entries, in both lawsuits, were dated May 24, 2021, and titled "Reply to opposition to Motion."
Attorneys representing Giuliani and Powell have argued for the suits to be dismissed, motions that have been opposed by Dominion. There has not been a verdict in either case; both remain open at the time of writing.
We also reached out to Dominion to ask about post's claim and will update this story, as needed, if we receive a response.
