The CEO of MyPillow, Mike Lindell, claimed that the government had violated his First and Fourth Amendment rights when it seized his mobile phone, but the Supreme Court has decided not to hear his appeal. The court denied numerous cases on Monday, including Lindell's.

The decision was made about two years after his mobile phone was confiscated by the prosecution. Since Lindell may have shared private information about Colorado voting equipment with others during the 2020 election, she has become the subject of an inquiry.

First contesting the seizure in 2022, the creator of MyPillow is now appealing the decision.

"Lindell's irritation as to where and how the government took possession of his cell phone does not give rise to a constitutional claim, let alone a showing of a callous disregard for his constitutional rights," U.S. Circuit Judge Ralph Erickson wrote in the appellate decision to deny Lindell's challenge last September.

Tina Peters, the clerk for Mesa County, Colorado, is the focus of the inquiry. In March 2022, Peters faced an indictment on seven felonies and three misdemeanors related to her pursuit of evidence of electoral malpractice. It will not start her trial until July 29.
