Details released regarding Righthaven’s dirty settlement gag order

Author: Silence Dogood

According to a report from Steve Green of Vegas Inc, Righthaven’s secret settlement details are finally being legally released due to the fact that Righthaven put their own confidential terms into a declaration to the court for a motion to get the judge to deny attorneys fees to David Kerr.

This is what the settlement agreement demanded of Mr. Hill, non-parties (Means friends, allies, comrades, and possibly fans of Mr. Hill’s articles), and even his attorney if Brian D. Hill of USWGO had signed the settlement agreement.

According to this settlement agreement they were going to get Brian Hill to lie before the court and press, make out like “Mr. Hill, insinuating that his mental condition may have led him to make false statements to the public and the court” (Quote from Vegas Inc), then they were going to make him remove all articles from federaljack and oneutah (Ken Binghams blog) plus the Las Vegas Sun articles would have to be requested to be removed, and anyone breaking a settlement term would be at least $10,000 per violation against Mr. Hill. If the settlement agreements signed by Alex Jones and Matt Drudge are similar then that explains why Alex Jones is not allowed to ever talk about Righthaven and if anyone brings up about it on his show they could make Alex Jones pay $10,000 per settlement breach. That is theoretically if some of the settlement details are exactly the same as what Alex Jones, Matt Drudge, and others have signed.

(This is theoretical but the release of the settlement terms explains a lot) Now people know why Alex Jones has not been syndicating any of USWGO’s articles (3 of USWGO’s articles was syndicarted by Infowars.com before the lawsuit began but after then lawsuit none of USWGO’s future articles were ever added to infowars) even though one got on GCNLive and a link on Dprogram.net because Alex Jones could possibly get himself in trouble if he gives any article syndicatioin support to Brian Hill while he was a victim of the Righthaven frivolous lawsuits. That explains why even Brian Hill’s best articles won’t even show up on infowars.com because until the case is completely thrown out, Alex Jones may have to keep himself seperated from any infowarriors that are lawsuit victims of Righthaven and that includes Brian Hill.

Quoted from the release from David Kerr:

Such onerous demand being subject to an award of liquidated damages of $10,000 per breach.
  9. Righthaven inappropriately sought to condition settlement on requirements that counsel for Righthaven remove, or seek to have removed any public comments made about this case or Righthaven, and that counsel for Mr. Hill would be further enjoined from ever publically discussing Righthaven, or this case, except with explicit permission of Righthaven, prejudicing his ability to represent other Defendants accused by Righthaven.
  10. Righthaven inappropriately sought to impose onerous liquidated damages of $10,000 per breach of the settlement agreement. Such damages were applicable to Mr. Hill’s mother, and could be construed to apply to Mr. Hill’s counsel.

  12. Righthaven inappropriately sought to require attorneys’ fee pursuant to any breach of the settlement agreement, even though they were aware that Mr. Hill had no recoverable assets, and that his only source of income was exempted from such relief under federal law.
  13. Righthaven inappropriately sought to issue a press release that fabricated specific quotes falsely representing that Mr. Hill, his mother and attorney’s had made false statements directly contrary to the facts and prior declarations made to this court. The ultimate result being that, Righthaven sought to leverage and condition Mr. Hill’s release with a false admission that he, and his mother, and potentially his counsel had perjured themselves before this Court.
  14. Righthaven inappropriately sought to issue a press release solely to embarrass and disparage Mr. Hill, insinuating that his mental condition may have led him to make false statements to the public and the Court.

  18. Righthaven inappropriately sought to extract a false concession from Mr. Hill’s counsel for critical statements made regarding Righthaven’s business model.
  19. Righthaven inappropriately sought to fabricate quotes from Mr. Hill’s counsel that would contradict the facts of Righthavens litigation conduct in an effort to mitigate or cut-off any accrued liability.
  20. Righthaven inappropriately sought to fabricate quotes from Mr. Hill’s counsel that would falsely admit, and make legal conclusions that Righthaven was within their rights to pursue claims of copyright infringement against Mr. Hill, and that Mr. Hill’s actions violated the law. Such false concessions would result in extreme prejudice to Mr. Hill’s legal rights and any later appeal efforts, but would be in total derogation of counsel’s ethical and professional obligations to his client.
