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.

Righthaven's Slow Motion Implosion Continues; 'Superstar' Litigator Withdraws from Cases

Top Copyright Litigator Withdraws from Righthaven Cases
Dale Cendali, one of the top U.S. copyright attorneys, made it clear Wednesday that she’s no longer representing struggling copyright enforcement company Righthaven LLC of Las Vegas ... Cendali, who signed on to represent Righthaven in a couple of cases last year as it struggled to beat back challenges to its lawsuits, hasn’t been heard from in months in relation to Righthaven.
News about "superstar" litigator Dale Cendali is a longtime in the coming. No one understood as far back as September 2011 how Righthaven could pay Cendali, a partner at Kirkland and Ellis. According to PaidContent.org, Kirkland was one of the first firms where some New York partners "broke the $1,000-per-hour billing ceiling a few years back." There's still no word on Righthaven's other outside attorney, Shawn Mangano, -- withdrawing or otherwise -- who has been absent for weeks.
