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.

Colorado Judge Dings Righthaven for Another $33,000 in 'Reasonable Attorney's Fees'

U.S. District Judge John Kane ordered Righthaven to pay attorney's fees to defendant Leland Wolf today in the amount of $33,148.35. Bond was set at $50,000. During comments by the court, attorney for Righthaven, Shawn Mangano, was admonished for his "lack of civility." Wolf is represented by Andrew Contiguglia, who was in court today, and Randazza Legal Group. Thus far, the Randazza group has helped round up fee awards for defendants Michael Leon, Wayne Hoehn and Leland Wolf.

  1. It won't be long for Righthaven to be charged more in fees and sanctions than they ever made in settlements.
