Righthaven LLC -- a bottom feeding legal outfit -- has teamed up with the Las Vegas Review-Journal and Denver Post to sue mom and pop websites, advocacy and public interest groups and forum board operators for copyright infringement. The strategy of Righthaven is to sue thousands of these website owners, who are primarily unfunded and will be forced to settle out of court.

Grievances Filed with State Bar Against Righthaven CEO, Steve Gibson

State Bar of Nevada Reviewing Grievance Against Righthaven CEO

How Do You File a Grievance?

As stated on the State Bar of Nevada website, "no special form is necessary to file a complaint." Such greviances must be in writing and can be sent via U.S. mail, fax or email (complaint@nvbar.org). Persons may wish to review the Nevada Rules of Professional Conduct prior to sending. The Office of Bar Counsel typically completes the initial review of grievances within ten business days of receipt.

The website also states that they provide a "complaint form" to assist persons. This form, however, could not be located.
