The first Righthaven Lawsuit to come out since the damning revelations concerning Righthaven and Stephens Media's agreement was released to the public and the first since January concerning a Las Vegas Review Journal article was filed on Thursday against a Utah based website. In their filing Righthaven alleges that the site also posted stories from the Las Vegas Sun.
The Las Vegas Sun and their staff writer Steve Green is the main source for information concerning Righthaven. Righthaven has taken it upon themselves to speak for a competing newspaper of the Las Vegas Review Journal and commandeered the name of The Las Vegas Sun for their law-suit. The Las Vegas Sun can choose to fight their own battles if they so choose and do not need Righthaven to choose it for them.
