Las Vegas copyright infringement lawsuit filer Righthaven LLC’s financial problems grew Tuesday when the federal court in Las Vegas commanded the U.S. Marshals Service to seize more than $63,000 in Righthaven assets to satisfy a creditor’s judgment and costs.

Lance Wilson, clerk of the court, signed a writ of execution requested by attorneys for Wayne Hoehn, who was sued for copyright infringement by Righthaven —but then defeated Righthaven in court when his case was dismissed this summer.

Righthaven since March 2010 has filed 275 lawsuits against websites, bloggers and message board posters claiming they infringed on material from the Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Denver Post by posting their content online without authorization

About as funny as the man and wife that seized the assets of a bank for not paying a court ordered sum and chained the front doors of the bank to get paid.

even though Rightheaven was suing the DUmmyville, I am still glad the troll got slapped.

I really hope that FreeRepublic didn't give Righthaven a monetary settlement when this site was in their crosshairs last year.

I understand that it's often cheaper to settle than fight, but I wish that FR had been one of the later targets, after it became clear that Righthaven was doomed to fail.

Are there any attorneys that are willing to venture whether a settlement could be voided, on the basis that it was fraudulent?

It wasn't just DU. Free Republic was one of the first targets.
