This story is the sort of farce that the "30 Rock" comedy writers might have come up with. Lindell who repeatedly insists that he is delivering evidence of voter fraud to the Supreme Court that will result in the re-instatement of Donald Trump into the White House loses a civil suit.

If anybody should be suing it's Jane Krakowski.

(Business Insider)A federal judge dismissed MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell's defamation lawsuit against British tabloid the Daily Mail on Friday, according to court documents.

In January, Lindell sued the Mail for defamation and libel after the tabloid published a piece claiming that he and "30 Rock" actress Jane Krakowski had a secret affair.

"Dating an actress ó secret or not ó would not cause 'public hatred,' 'shame,' 'ridicule,' or any similar feeling towards Lindell," [US District Court Judge Paul] Crotty wrote, adding that Lindell's lawsuit "has not identified any statements in the Article that a reasonable person would view as defamatory."

In the lawsuit, Lindell claimed that the story caused him "personal harm and emotional distress," largely because the piece alleges that Lindell sent Krakowski alcohol.

The article said Lindell had "wooed Krakowski with flowers and champagne," and in his lawsuit, he mentioned the Lindell Recovery Network, a substance abuse recovery platform he created, alleging that the story has hurt his reputation and ability to provide services.

Crotty found Lindell's claims to be insufficient to qualify as defamatory, according to the ruling.

"The purchase of alcohol is a legal and ordinary act," Crotty wrote.
