Righthaven faces $119,000 legal fee demand
Advertisements [?]
Unsuccessful copyright infringement lawsuits filed by Righthaven LLC of Las Vegas are threatening to become more costly, with attorneys for another prevailing defendant now demanding Righthaven pay their $119,457 in legal fees and costs.

Attorneys for former federal prosecutor Thomas DiBiase filed their request for fees Wednesday in U.S. District Court for Nevada after U.S. District Judge Roger Hunt dismissed Righthavens suit against DiBiase last month for lack of standing.


Attorneys for prevailing defendant Wayne Hoehn have already asked to be awarded $34,000 in fees and costs while attorneys for defendant Michael Leon, whose case was dismissed when he wasn't served in time, have won $3,815 in fees against Righthaven.

Wednesdays $119,457 request is far larger than those previously requested but it likely will be dwarfed by an upcoming fee request in Righthavens lawsuit against the Democratic Underground. /

Ha Ha you bastards!
