Claim That Righthaven Engaged In Unauthorized Practice Of Law Moves To Nevada
from the and-onwards,-I-suppose dept
We recently wrote about a filing in South Carolina, claiming that Righthaven was engaged in the unauthorized practice of law. The petition carefully laid out how Righthaven's practices might qualify as such in a variety of states, so it's little surprise that the same argument has now also been filed in a case in Nevada, where the largest chunk of Righthaven cases have been filed. I wouldn't be surprised to see the same thing filed in Colorado soon as well. You can see the filing below... and right after it you can see that the judge accepted the filing almost immediately, before Righthaven had a chance to protest:
The court has reviewed the proposed brief and agrees that it may be useful to the court in ruling on the pending order to show cause why the case should not be dismissed for lack of standingOnce again, things are not looking very good for Righthaven these days. But, of course, I'm sure the judges are just doing this because they believe in Righthaven, and just want to give "guidance" to competitors... Yeah, that's the ticket...
