The latest development in the ongoing litigation against so-called “copyright troll” company Righthaven LLC found U.S. District Judge Roger Hunt levying a $5,000 fine against the company for misleading the court. According to Nevada’s VegasInc.com, “Hunt said Righthaven deliberately failed to disclose the owner of the Las Vegas Review-Journal shares in Righthaven’s lawsuit revenue. But, without explanation, Hunt didn’t sanction any of the Righthaven attorneys that may have been responsible for the misrepresentation.” http://www.vegasinc.com/news/2011/jul/14/judge-fines-righthaven-5000-misleading-court-over-/ Reporter Steven Green goes on to write that one of Righthaven’s lawyers, Shawn Mangano, indicated that the company was considering an appeal of the sanction: “Mangano said Righthaven is considering appealing because Hunt based the sanction on grounds that Righthaven wasn’t given a chance to respond to.” CorpCounsel.com has been following the Righthaven case closely, and several of our previous articles about the litigation are linked below:
