Short and sweet this time. Eric Goldman points us to the news that Righthaven has had yet another case dismissed in Nevada over the lack of standing. This ruling came from Judge Roger Hunt, the same judge who ruled on the first case (Democratic Underground) that determined that Righthaven never held the copyright to the material, and thus had no standing to sue. However, he also cites the other such ruling by Judge Philip Pro. Get used to this, because there will likely be a flurry of such rulings on pretty much all of the remaining Nevada cases. The same may be true in Colorado, but we still have to wait and see there.
