Ask any trial lawyer about the most misunderstood aspect of civil litigation and the answer is usually this… while a client may win a monetary award, it’s a whole other thing collecting the cash.
It appears this is the lesson learned by Bob Zeidman, the man who successful proved, through arbitration, Mike Lindell is full of BS. If you remember, the My Pillow guy offered a $5 million payment to anyone who could prove his “data” about massive election interference in the 2020 presidential election was bogus. He called it the “Prove Mike Wrong” contest.
Now, in a shocking turn of events, My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell has actually “made good” on his promise! However, instead of writing a check for $5 million, Lindell decided to pay the award in the form of My Pillow products.
Zeidman, the recipient of this unique compensation, is a software developer who had publicly criticized Lindell’s claims. Zeidman was initially skeptical when he heard about Lindell’s offer, but after conducting extensive research, he was able to conclusively prove that Lindell’s evidence of election fraud was nothing but smoke and mirrors.
“I was really surprised when Lindell offered to pay me in My Pillow products,” Zeidman said in a recent interview. “My initial reaction was to tell the guy to go stuff it, but after my lawyer did a thorough review of his financial situation, I realized this was probably the best I was going to do.”
Zeidman was given a truckload of My Pillow products, including pillows, sheets, and mattress toppers. While the total value of the products was said to be $5 million, many experts have expressed doubt that they are actually worth that much.
Some have speculated that Lindell may have inflated the value of the products in order to save face after his claims were debunked. Others have suggested that he simply has too much My Pillow inventory and is trying to offload it in any way he can.
Either way, Zeidman says he’s happy he won his case and was able to collect something. When asked what he plans to do with all those pillows, he chuckled and replied, “I don’t know, maybe I’ll build the mother of all pillow forts and live in it forever.”
