The Righthaven LLC copyright infringement litigation took a bizarre turn Monday when Righthaven's court-appointed receiver moved to fire Righthaven CEO Steven Gibson.
The receiver, Lake Tahoe-area attorney Lara Pearson, filed papers in federal court in Las Vegas saying Gibson has been taking actions to harm the company, that she is terminating him and that she plans to have Righthaven sue him for malpractice.
Gibson didn't say Monday if he would formally contest Pearsons actions, but he made it clear he opposes them.
"I do not think it appropriate to litigate this matter in the press, but you can note that there is certainly disagreement," said Gibson, a Las Vegas attorney.
Las Vegas-based Righthaven is a partnership between Gibson and an affiliate of Stephens Media LLC, owner of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
