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.

Attorneys for Wayne Hoehn File Motion for Seizure of Righthaven's Bank Accounts

Attorneys representing Wayne Hoehn filed a motion Sunday asking the court to issue a writ of execution for Hoehn's judgment against Righthaven after the group defied the court ordered payment due date last week. The motion states, "No stay prohibiting Hoehn’s execution of his judgment is in place, nor would any such future stay have retroactive effect." It also states that the "Court is entitled to authorize the U.S. Marshalls to execute Hoehn’s judgment" through seizure of bank accounts.
Court is entitled to authorize the U.S. Marshalls to execute Hoehn’s judgment through seizure of Righthaven’s bank accounts, real and personal property, and intangible intellectual property rights for levy, lien, auction or other treatment appropriate for satisfaction of Hoehn’s judgment.

In August 2011, Wayne Hoehn was awarded $34,045 in attorneys’ fees and costs in a judicial order that doomed Righthaven LLC, a fraudulent outfit operating out of Las Vegas pretending to own copyrights and then suing 100s of defendants, scaring them into settlements.
Righthaven has filed some 275 federal copyright lawsuits claiming text from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and [formerly] the Denver Post has been used without regard to copyright law by the Internet users including bloggers and message board posters.
Righthaven lost its case against Hoehn who knew that he could not live up to his oath he once gave to defend the U.S. Constitution if he gave up without a fight. Hoehn stood up for fair use and free speech – and he prevailed.

  1. HAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

    This just keeps getting better and better and better!

  2. It would be interesting for Randazza legal team to cease all the copyrights that Righthaven claims to own then turn around and sue The LVRJ and Denver Post for copyright infringement.
