Righthaven Screws Up (Again); Appeal Dismissed

from the do-they-do-anything-right? dept

Righthaven has a pretty long history of totally screwing up. And in the last month or so, it’s simply been not showing up at all. It seems both trends have continued. Righthaven had indicated that it was focusing much of its efforts on its appeals in the 9th Circuit appeals court, where it hoped to reverse its rather stunning string of losses. But, instead, it appears that it just didn’t show up. In a short and sweet order today from the appeals court, its appeal in the case against Garry Newman was dismissed, because Righthaven “failed to comply” with an earlier court order:

Appellant has failed to comply with the court?s order filed December 14, 2011. Accordingly, this appeal is dismissed. Ninth Cir. Rule 42-1. The parties shall bear their own costs on appeal.

This order served on the district court shall act as and for the mandate of this court.

Amazingly, a big part of the reason Righthaven is even in this situation, appealing the Newman case concerning his website FacePunch.com, is that Righthaven missed earlier deadlines on the case as well. So it appealed… and now it’s totally failed to comply with the earlier court order here too.

Righthaven seems to invent new and interesting ways to display incompetence almost every day.
