Justice - Ambulance Chasing Attorneys Get Run Over
« on: November 03, 2011, 03:00:04 AM »
Nice to see Righthaven is getting some payback.  They've been hounding a bunch of little bloggers, and others, for bogus copyright infringement over many years.  Good to see they're finally getting a little justice.

Las Vegas copyright infringement lawsuit filer Righthaven LLCís financial problems grew Tuesday when the federal court in Las Vegas commanded the U.S. Marshals Service to seize more than $63,000 in Righthaven assets to satisfy a creditorís judgment and costs.

Lance Wilson, clerk of the court, signed a writ of execution requested by attorneys for Wayne Hoehn, who was sued for copyright infringement by Righthaven ó but then defeated Righthaven in court when his case was dismissed this summer.

Righthaven since March 2010 has filed 275 lawsuits against websites, bloggers and message board posters claiming they infringed on material from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Denver Post by posting their content online without authorization.

The companyís litigation campaign stalled this summer after three suits were thrown out on fair use grounds and five judges in Nevada and Colorado ruled Righthaven lacked standing to sue because it didnít control the newspaper copyrights it claimed to own.
