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.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Revives Action in DiBiase Case; Attorney Shawn Mangano on the Hook

Just when you believed all bad things finally come to an end, such as the copyright troll known as Righthaven, the awful karma is whipped up again. In this instance, U.S. Magistrate Judge Peggy Leen revived a longstanding issue in Righthaven's lawsuit against Thomas DiBiase. The issue concerns attorney Shawn Mangano failing to respond to her previous orders. Leen wrote in her order Tuesday that Mangano has one last chance to file a required brief by Oct. 2 and to attend the Oct. 16 hearing.
Leen, in setting an Oct. 16 hearing in the case, wrote in her order Tuesday that the problems in the case developed as outside Righthaven attorney Shawn Mangano failed to respond to her orders in the case...
Failure to appear at the hearing will result in an order directed to the U.S. Marshal’s office to find and bring Mr. Mangano before the court. Failure to respond to this order by Mr. Mangano may result in sanctions, including contempt of court against Mr. Mangano," Leen wrote in her order.
