The saga of Righthaven continues... and may finally be nearing a close. With Righthaven failing to get a court to change the requirement to put up a bond for the $34k it owes in legal fees for its bogus lawsuit against Wayne Hoehn, the deadline for Righthaven to pay up (or post such a bond) has passed. As such, it appears that the court has now signed off on a writ of execution for the US Marshal Service to seek to get from Righthaven the money owed, including additional accrued costs to make the total at stake: $63,720.80. In fact, they're "authorized to use reasonable force in the execution of this Judgment/Order." It seems that missing deadlines for filings may be the least of Righthaven's problems at this point.
