We appreciate getting an official “shout out” in ALM/Law.com’s “Litigator of the Week Runners-Up and Shout Outs” related to our $5 million win against My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell on April 20, 2023.
“Shout out to Bailey & Glasser, LLP Glasser founding partner Brian Glasser and his partners Cary Joshi and Lori Bullock for winning a $5 million arbitration award for cybersecurity expert Robert Zeidman against MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell. Last week a three-arbitrator panel held that Zeidman proved data Lindell had promoted as purported evidence of Chinese hacking switching presidential votes for Donald Trump to Joe Biden ‘unequivocally did not reflect November 2020 election data.’ The panel found Zeidman was due the $5 million Lindell had put up as part of the ‘Prove Mike Wrong Challenge’ launched during an August 2021 cyber symposium.”

Mike Lindell, MyPillow founder and 2020 election conspiracy theorist, has lost a multi-million-dollar case against Robert Zeidman, a renowned and respected cyber expert. Brian Glasser and Cary Joshi of Bailey & Glasser, LLP represented Mr. Zeidman in this matter at trial. Other team members who worked on this matter include partner Lori Bullock and paralegal Manuel Rios.
Following the 2020 election, Lindell prominently trumpeted the false theory that the 2020 presidential election involved alleged Chinese government hacking that resulted in votes cast for Donald Trump being switched to Joe Biden. In July 2021, Mike Lindell sponsored his own so-called “Cyber Symposium”, which he said would provide an opportunity for technical experts in cyber forensics to examine and evaluate the evidence presented by Lindell.
Lindell was so confident in the validity of his so-called “evidence” that, as part of his Cyber Symposium, he held the “Prove Mike Wrong Challenge” and offered a $5 million prize to anyone who could prove the data was not valid. Today’s decision declares unequivocally that Zeidman proved Mike wrong.
