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.

Stephens Media Hires New York Power Lawyer To Clean Up Righthaven Mess

Stephens Media has hired New York power lawyer Dale Cendali, a partner at the law firm Kirkland & Ellis LLP in New York, specializing in copyright law to help clean up the mess caused by their ill-conceived arrangement with Righthaven. Has Stephens media lost faith in Stephen Gibson and his band of misfit lawyers by hiring someone from the outside?

You also have to wonder why a lawyer with presumably an impeccable reputation would risk it all by associating herself with Righthaven? They must be paying her a lot and as Steve Green from VEGAS INC speculates most likely far more than Righthaven can ever recoup from these lawsuits.
