CORRESPONDENCE TO COURT On behalf of its client, Plaintiff-Appellant Righthaven LLC (“Righthaven”), counsel respectfully submits to the Court correspondence comprising a status report regarding the appointment of a receiver by the District Court in the underlying matter, and subsequent developments related thereto. This correspondence is intended to apprise the Court of the authority and status of various counsel that have appeared before this Court on behalf of Righthaven, and of certain activity before the District Court that may affect this appeal. Appointment and Initial Activity of Receiver for Righthaven’s Assets On November 14, 2011, Appellee-Defendant Wayne Hoehn (“Hoehn”) filed a motion in the underlying action before the District Court, requesting that it “order the appointment of a receiver to which Plaintiff Righthaven LLC (“Righthaven”) shall assign all of its intellectual property and other intangible property, which the receiver shall auction in order to partially satisfy Hoehn’s judgment and writ of execution entered against Righthaven.” (Declaration of Erik S. Syverson (“Syverson Decl.”) Exh. A [D. Nev. Dkt. No. 62]) On December 12, 2011, the District Court issued an Order granting Hoehn’s motion after Righthaven failed to file a response. (Syverson Decl. Exh. B [D. Nev. Dkt. No. 66]) The appointed receiver, Ms. Lara Pearson, subsequently made certain reports to the District Court regarding the progress of the receivership. A first

report, filed on January 3, 2012, advised the court of communications between Ms. Pearson and Righthaven’s prior counsel, Mr. Shawn Mangano, regarding the transfer of Righthaven’s intellectual property assets, and requested the District Court’s intervention. (Syverson Decl. Exh. C [D. Nev. Dkt. No. 70]) Second and third reports, filed on January 6, 2012 and February 8, 2012, respectively, apprised the court of the results of the auction of Righthaven’s web domain name <Righthaven.com> and the distribution of funds raised through the auction. (Syverson Decl. Exhs. D, E [D. Nev. Dkt. Nos. 73, 81]) A fourth report, filed on February 20, 2012, informed the court of the receiver’s continuing inability to facilitate the transfer of Righthaven’s intellectual property assets. (Syverson Decl. Exh. F [D. Nev. Dkt. No. 82]) The receiver subsequently attended a hearing on a motion brought by Hoehn, which sought to compel Righthaven’s managers to execute transfers of Righthaven’s intellectual property assets. (Syverson Decl. Exh. G [D. Nev. Dkt. No. 91]) During that hearing, the District Court issued an order transferring the requested assets to the receiver. (Syverson Decl. Exh. H [D. Nev. Dkt. No. 90]) Response of Receiver to Pursuit of this Appeal Separate from the proceedings at the District Court, Righthaven engaged the undersigned counsel in order to maintain the instant appeal, as a result of its inability to communicate with prior counsel, Mr. Mangano. Through the

undersigned counsel, Righthaven successfully corrected deficiencies with the service of the Excerpts of the Record and filed a Motion to Late File its Reply Brief. (9th Cir. Dkt. Nos. 28, 30) Shortly after the filing of the motion and proposed Reply Brief, the receiver sent correspondence to Righthaven’s CEO, Steven Gibson, and to the undersigned counsel, asserting that she had complete authority over Righthaven, that the CEO was retroactively terminated as of her appointment as a receiver, and that the undersigned counsel was to cease all activity on behalf of Righthaven. The receiver subsequently filed a report with the District Court on June 25, 2012, seeking post hoc authorization for her exercise of power over Righthaven’s officers and the undersigned counsel, and for a grant of broad authority to handle Righthaven’s affairs, and attaching her correspondence to Mr. Gibson and the undersigned counsel. (Syverson Decl. Exh. I [D. Nev. Dkt. No 91]) Going beyond the scope of her June 25 report, the receiver subsequently hired Mr. Allen Lichtenstein as additional counsel on behalf of Righthaven and instructed him to appear before this Court in this appeal. (9th Cir. Dkt. No. 31) Mr. Gibson, Righthaven’s CEO, has appeared pro se in the District Court to oppose the receiver’s recent actions, noting that the receiver appears to have greatly exceeded the scope of the authority granted by the District Court, and has failed to follow local procedures governing the conduct of receivers, including a

local rule prohibiting receivers from hiring attorneys without prior court approval. (Syverson Decl. Exh. J [D. Nev. Dkt. No 91]) Current Status Presently, no hearing has yet been set at the District Court to resolve the dispute between the receiver and Righthaven’s management that has arisen as a result of the receiver’s recent acts and report. Likewise, no request has been made at the District Court to affirm the receiver’s intent to hire Mr. Lichtenstein as Righthaven’s attorney. As described above, currently pending activity before the District Court may have an impact on the instant appeal and its companion case (Case No 11-16995). Subject to intervening instruction from either this Court or the District Court in the matter below, the below signed counsel will reasonably inform this Court of changes in the status at the District Court.

DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR APPOINTMENT OF RECEIVER AND COMPELLED ASSIGNMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY IN PARTIAL SATISFACTION OF JUDGMENT Defendant Wayne Hoehn (“Hoehn”), through his attorneys, brings this motion seeking this Court to order the appointment of a receiver to which Plaintiff Righthaven LLC (“Righthaven”) shall assign all of its intellectual property and other intangible property, which the receiver shall auction in order to partially satisfy Hoehn’s judgment and writ of execution entered against Righthaven.

In fact, Righthaven has lost a great many cases in this District on several different grounds, ranging from failing to serve its defendants on time, to losses on the issue of fair use even where whole copyrighted works were -1Case No. 2:11-cv-00050 DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR APPOINTMENT OF RECEIVER AND COMPELLED ASSIGNMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY IN PARTIAL SATISFACTION OF JUDGMENT

reproduced, to losses on a lack of standing.1 The Court gave Hoehn the option of posting a bond in order to avoid execution. (Doc. # 56). To date, Righthaven has refused to pay the lawful judgment entered against it and has refused the alternative – posting a bond. Hoehn’s efforts to execute on Righthaven’s assets have been unsuccessful. (DeVoy Decl. ¶¶ 2-3) The fact is that Righthaven refuses to honor the judgment against it, and thus Mr. Hoehn must request this Honorable Court’s assistance in satisfying the judgment. Righhaven’s CEO Steven Gibson famously appeared on the television show Face to Face for an interview with John Ralston. In that interview, Gibson gave a quote that has been repeated ad nauseum by bloggers and journalists writing about this matter: “You’ve got to respect the judicial process, John.”2 Righthaven was originally “grubstaked” by Arkansas-based Stephens Media. In one of its earliest public relations pieces, Sherman Frederick, the former Publisher of the Las Vegas Review-Journal and CEO of Stephens, wrote of Righthaven’s opponents, “We can't fix crazy. Or paranoia. But we can fix pilfering.”3 Righthaven has not respected the judicial process, and its intransigence is difficult to explain. This court can’t fix arrogance, and it can’t compel heartfelt respect for the judicial process. It can fix contempt for its orders by compelling actions to give its orders meaning, and Mr. Hoehn asks it to do so in this Motion. The time has come for this Court to fix what it can, and to bring Righthaven’s lack of respect for the judicial process to an end. Righthaven, created and operated by an attorney, should have known better than to sue for infringement when the Defendant’s fair use was clear;

Righthaven should have known better than to sue for without the necessary rights to do so; and, Righthaven should have satisfied the judgment before forcing this additional remedy. Righthaven could have changed course at any time, but preferred not to. Since Righthaven has refused to satisfy the judgment, Hoehn is entitled to force Righthaven’s property into receivership and then to auction. Hoehn now moves this Court to put enact the process that will allow him to (at least partially) satisfy his judgment through Righthaven’s only known assets – its intellectual property. II. Argument A. This Court Should Oder Righthaven to Assign its Intellectual Property to a Receiver, Who Will Auction off the Property to Partially Satisfy Hoehn’s Judgment. Righthaven’s current predicament is one that has confronted courts and creditors for hundreds of years. Judgment debtors are often unwilling to pay. In circumstances such as this, courts are empowered to take steps to give judgments meaning. The remedy sought in this motion is not unusual. When a judgment debtor’s property includes intellectual property rights, they are of some value. However, this value cannot be obtained or controlled in physical form. Thus they cannot be physically seized like money or other physical items. See Peterson v. Sheriff of San Francisco, 46 P. 1060, 1060 (Cal. 1896). The Supreme Court, however, provided a clear edict for resolving these problems in Ager v. Murray, 105 U.S. 126 (1881). In Ager, the Supreme Court recognized that intellectual property rights such as patents and copyrights could not be directly seized – but, upon a court order, could be assigned by the debtor to a receiver, who would then sell the rights at auction to satisfy the creditor’s judgment. 105 U.S. at 126. Ager is directly on-point with respect to Righthaven’s putative copyright rights and nebulous proprietary infringement-seeking software (see Doc. # 521), and this intellectual property may be assigned to a receiver upon this Court’s order. See also Sky Techs. LLC v. SAP AG, 576 F.3d 1374, 1379 (Fed. Cir. 2009) (citing Ager and explaining the process for seizing intellectual property rights in order to satisfy a judgment); Kenyon v. Automatic Instrument Co., 160 F.2d 878, 884 (6th Cir. 1947) (“It is no longer open to question that a receiver appointed by a court may execute an assignment of a patent owned by an -3-

insolvent debtor”); Security-First Nat'l Bank v. Republic Pictures Corp., 97 F. Supp. 360, 369 (C.D. Cal. 1951) (“A method of foreclosure not being prescribed, the Court, in the exercise of its equity jurisdiction, could prescribe proper notice either by analogy to the sales on execution as to which the state laws are followed or by devising a special procedure which satisfies the requirement of due process”); Olive Branch Holdings v. Smith Tech. Dev., LLC, 181 Ohio App. 3d 479, 490 (Ohio Ct. App. 2009) (“It is undisputed that a judgment-creditor may reach patents owned by a debtor as a means of satisfying its judgment”). Righthaven holds at least one registered servicemark (Exh. A; DeVoy Decl. ¶ 18), at least one domain name, <righthaven.com>, and at least 250 copyright registrations (Exh. B; DeVoy Decl. ¶ 19). Righthaven’s domain names are intangible personal property akin to trademarks. CRS Recovery, Inc. v. Laxton, 600 F.3d 1138, 1143-44 (9th Cir. 2010); Kremen v. Cohen, 337 F.3d 1024 (9th Cir. 2003). Like California’s approach to intangible personal property, articulated in Kremen, Nevada recognizes it as something that embodies “every intangible benefit and prerogative susceptible of possession or disposition.” M.C. Multi-Family Dev., LLC v. Crestdale Assocs., Ltd., 193 P.3d 536, 543 (Nev. 2008) (citing Kremen, 337 F.3d at 1030). As intangible property, Righthaven’s copyright registrations, domain names, trademarks, and service marks may be properly assigned to a receiver to manage and auction them in fulfillment of Hoehn’s judgment and writ of execution (Docs. # 44, 59).4 See Ager, 105 U.S. at 126; Platt & Munk Co. v. Republic Graphics, 315 F.2d 847 (2d Cir. 1963); Zanetti v. Zanetti, 77 Cal. App. 2d 553 (Cal. Ct. App. 1st Dist. 1947); see also Marshak v. Green, 746 F.2d 927 (2d Cir. 1984) (delineating the requirements for assignment of trademarks). In this case, where not only a judgment has been entered in Hoehn’s favor (Doc. # 44), but a writ of execution as well (Doc. # 59), the Court is entitled to appoint a receiver for Righthaven’s intellectual property assets. In re McGaughey, 24 F.3d 904, 907 (7th Cir. 1994); Consolidated Rail Corp. v. Fore R. R. Co., 861 F.2d 322, 327 (1st Cir. 1988); U.S. v. Bartle, 159
As an ironic note in this case, the bare right of a trademark alone cannot be an effective assignment of the mark; associated goodwill must travel with it. Thus, Righthaven’s assignment of its trademarks and servicemarks to the receiver must entail all of the associated goodwill (such as it is) to be effective. E. & J. Gallo Winery v. Gallo Cattle Co., 967 F.2d 1280, 1289 (9th Cir. 1992); Burgess v. Gilman, 475 F. Supp. 2d 1051, 1055-56 (D. Nev. 2007).

Fed. Appx. 723 (7th Cir. 2005). State law defines the process through which this assignment and auction is effected. Ager, 105 U.S. at 126. Nevada law contemplates exactly the scenario currently before the Court, as Nevada Revised Statutes section 32.010 allows a court to appoint a receiver in circumstances including: 3. After judgment, to carry the judgment into effect, 4. After judgment, to dispose of the property according to the judgment […] or in proceedings in aid of execution, when an execution has been returned unsatisfied, or when the judgment debtor refuses to apply the judgment debtor's property in satisfaction of the judgment. 6. In all other cases where receivers have heretofore been appointed by the usages of the courts of equity. NRS 32.010 (emphasis added); see, e.g., Tousa Homes, Inc. v. Phillips, 363 F. Supp. 2d 1274, 1285-86 (D. Nev. 2005). In this case, Hoehn has already secured a potential receiver, Lara Pearson, who may be appointed by the Court. (See generally Decl. of Lara Pearson.) Ms. Pearson has more than 12 years of litigation and transactional experience regarding trademark, copyright, domain name, patent and other intellectual property matters, is admitted to practice before this Court, and is subject to its jurisdiction. (Pearson Decl. ¶¶ 2-8, 11-13; DeVoy Decl. ¶ 24; Exh G.) In light of her intellectual property experience, Ms. Pearson is particularly well-suited, and qualified, to serve as court-appointed Receiver for Righthaven’s intangible assets. Ms. Pearson consents to this appointment; moreover, she is neutral, disinterested and free of conflicts in this matter and all other Righthaven litigation. (Pearson Decl. ¶¶ 9-10.) B. Assignment of Righthaven’s Property to a Receiver is the Fair, Natural and Equitable Consequence of Hoehn’s Judgment and Writ of Execution. The assignment of Righthaven’s intellectual property to a receiver is an appropriate remedy. When this Court entered judgment against Righthaven on August 15, 2011, it granted Plaintiff 30 days to pay the judgment. Righthaven claimed it would face bankruptcy if denied full relief from Hoehn’s judgment (Doc. # 51-2), and received a 30-day extension to post a bond for $34,045.50 with this Court on September 28, 2011. (Doc. # 56) Righthaven then sought -5-

relief from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which it was summarily denied (Doc. # 57). On October 29, Hoehn sought a Writ of Execution from this Court (Doc. # 58), which he received on November 1, 2011 (Doc. # 59). Righthaven refused to post a bond with the court to secure Hoehn’s enforcement of his judgment. Righthaven has fully litigated its sought relief before this Court and the Ninth Circuit, introducing evidence to support its claims. (Doc. # 52); Righhtaven v. Hoehn, Case No. 1116995 (Docs. # 5, 6) (9th Cir. 2011). Righthaven has exercised every Due Process protection available to it. With its avenues to seek redress exhausted, Righthaven must finally “respect the judicial process” and satisfy this Honorable Court’s lawfully entered judgment. It has been given ample time in which to do so or to post a supersedeas bond under Rule 62(d). Its refusal to do either is inexcusable and contemptuous. Its refusal, if unchecked, will send a message to any who might observe this case that judgments rendered by this Court are merely advisory. This message will be countered if this Honorable Court makes it clear that its Orders will be followed, or consequences follow for those who think otherwise. This seizure and forced assignment of assets is what happens when losing parties refuse to satisfy or post bonds for their judgments. Rule 62(d) allows for a party to post a supersedeas bond to avoid this outcome, and Hoehn specifically stipulated to Righthaven posting such a bond. (Doc. # 53) Righthaven refused, doubled-down on its legal position, and must live with the consequences. Based on the representations of Righthaven’s counsel (Doc. # 52-1),

Righthaven knew this day would come – yet still refused to comply. This Court should remain unmoved by any pleas for mercy from the Plaintiff. In addition to long exhausting its avenues to seek relief (see Docs. # 56, 57), its conduct belies any reason to grant it an accommodation. Had Righthaven obtained a single judgment against any of its defendants, there is no doubt it would have immediately done the same – if not worse – to its victims. In violation of Federal Law, Righthaven attempted to seek a settlement through a defendant’s disability benefits, in direct violation of 42 U.S.C. § 407. Righthaven v. Hill, Case

No. 1:11-cv-00211 (Doc. # 27 at 16) (D. Colo. May 19, 2011). Any plaintiff who would do such a thing, and then beg this court for mercy, deserves contempt – not relief. Because these intellectual property assets are readily available and Hoehn’s judgment has not been satisfied otherwise, these intellectual property rights should be used to at least partially satisfy Hoehn’s judgment and writ of execution. C. An Auction of Righthaven’s Intellectual Property Serves Both Parties’ Interests. An auction of Righthaven’s assets by a receiver is in the interest of both parties. The bulk of Righthaven’s intellectual property portfolio consists of more than 250 copyright registrations. (Exh. B) In addition, Righthaven owns servicemarks, at least one domain name, and proprietary search software, of which Righthaven’s counsel will not disclose more. (see Doc. # 52-1) Hoehn is entitled to auction off this property through a receiver. Merely assigning these rights to Hoehn does not recoup the costs of Hoehn’s extensive legal bills, incurred in response to Righthaven’s conduct. In fact, doing so will invite more wasteful litigation over their value. Instead, this Court should let the open market dictate their value. The conditions of a commercially reasonable sale should reflect a calculated effort to promote a sales price that is equitable to both the debtor and the secured creditor. Dennison v. Allen Group Leasing Corp., 110 Nev. 181, 186 (Nev. 1994) (citing Savage Constr. v. ChallengeCook, 102 Nev. 34, 37 (Nev. 1986)). “The ‘quality of the publicity, the price obtained at the auction, [and] the number of bidders in attendance’ are important factors to consider when analyzing the commercial reasonableness of a public sale.” Dennison, 110 Nev. at 186 (citing Savage, 102 Nev. at 37). The proposed receiver, Ms. Pearson, is a well-known intellectual property attorney with more than a decade of relevant experience. (Pearson Decl. ¶¶ 2-5; Exh. G). Ms. Pearson will be able to draw a sufficient number of attendees to bid on Righthaven’s copyrights, trademarks, servicemarks, domain names and proprietary intellectual property. (Id. ¶¶ 11-13; see DeVoy Decl. ¶¶ 4-10.) While Righthaven’s intellectual property is difficult to appraise on its own, its value would be increased by several factors at public auction.

within this District has been national news. Righthaven’s CEO, Steve Gibson, willingly and triumphantly dove into the national spotlight in 2010. See, e.g., David Kravets, Newspaper Chain’s New Business Plan: Copyright Suits, Wired (July 22, 2010),

http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2010/07/copyright-trolling-for-dollars) (quoting Gibson as saying “Media companies’ assets are very much their copyrights. These companies need to understand and appreciate that those assets have value more than merely the present advertising revenues”). Since then, Righthaven’s attempt to capture public attention has been quite

successful, albeit 180 degrees from its initial plan. The scheme is regularly the subject of news in the Las Vegas Sun, Vegas Inc., The Denver Post and The New York Times to Ars Technica, Wired, TechDirt and the Drudge Report. The public has a palpable interest in Righthaven, and it is foreseeable that Righthaven’s assets will take on the form of “legal memorabilia,” and thus their auction price would be higher than their inherent value. As such, broad participation in a widely publicized auction will ensure that Righthaven’s intellectual property assets receive at least their fair market value – and likely far more. Hoehn’s counsel has already received requests for Rightaven property from curious collectors and other parties who wish to have a piece of Righthaven memorabilia.5 (DeVoy Decl. ¶¶ 4-10.) D. The Court’s Order Must Require Righthaven to Act Swiftly or Face Serious Consequences. To effectively transfer Righthaven’s intellectual property and satisfy Hoehn’s judgment, the Court may appoint a receiver to take custody of Righthaven’s intellectual property. Ms. Pearson has volunteered to assume this position, and welcomes this Court’s appointment. (Pearson Decl. ¶¶ 8, 11-13.) To complete the transfer of intellectual property, an authorized representative of Righthaven must assign all of its rights in its copyrights,

trademarks/servicemarks, domain names and proprietary technology to the receiver. To expedite this process, Hoehn submits that Righthaven should effect individual assignments for each piece of intellectual property, so there is no doubt as to the assignment, using the forms provided in
Strangely enough, the largest number of requests have been for a bluetooth headset worn by Righthaven CEO, Steve Gibson. (DeVoy Decl. ¶ 9.)

Exhibits C, D, E and F for copyrights, trademarks/servicemarks, domain names and other intellectual property, respectively. (DeVoy Decl. ¶¶ 20-23.) Within seven (7) days of this Court’s order, Righthaven shall effect assignment of all of these rights to the receiver. Given Righthaven’s demonstrated extreme penchant for delay and multiplying the proceedings in this action, swift action is necessary; Righthaven has consistently demonstrated that it will take every opportunity to delay a resolution of this matter and frustrate Hoehn’s satisfaction of his judgment. (Docs. # 52, 57); Hoehn, Case No. 11-16995 (Docs. 5-8) (9th Cir. 2011); Hoehn, Case No. 11-16751 (Docs. 4-6) (9th Cir. 2011). Once these assignments are effected, Righthaven shall file a notice with this Court certifying that it has complied with this Order. If this Order is not complied with within seven days of its issuance, the Court should issue a writ of bodily attachment for Righthaven’s officers, Mr. Steven A. Gibson, Chief Executive Officer; and Raisha Y. Gibson, a/k/a “Drizzle”, Chief Administrative Officer, so the U.S. Marshals may make them appear in Court so as to a) immediately effect written transfers of Righthaven’s intellectual property to the receiver, or b) explain Righthaven’s failure to do so, on pain of contempt. E. The Receiver Should Take Possession of, and Auction off, Righthaven’s Tangible Property as Well. Rightaven’s offices have long been abandoned. (DeVoy Decl. ¶¶ 12-14.) Even when they were in use, they were not the exclusive place where Righthaven conducted its business (id. ¶ 15). On information and belief, the company has done little since June 1, 20116 except transfer its money to its CEO and its CAO, who happen to be husband and wife. Its current operations are believed to be run entirely out of the Gibson household. Therefore, it is presumed that Righthaven owns little tangible property of material value. Nevertheless, it must own something, and that something has an inherent value which can be determined at auction. Much like its intangible property, its value may come more from collectors than from those who actually want the physical items.

In a case similar to this one, United States v. Kaczynski, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California allowed third party to auction off personal items belonging to Ted Kaczynski, better known as the Unabomber. 446 F. Supp. 2d 1146, 1149-50, 1153 (E.D. Cal. 2006), aff’d U.S. v. Kaczynski, 551 F.3d 1120 (9th Cir. 2009). Like Righthaven, the Unabomber was a looming public figure whose bizarre, reclusive existence – and possessions – became a subject of public intrigue following the discovery that he lived alone in a secluded rural shack. Thus, the Court found it proper for the Marshals to coordinate a public sale of Kaczynski’s personal items to partially satisfy a restitution agreement Kaczynski entered with the United States. Id. at 1148, 1153. This Court’s Order should include instructions to Righthaven’s CEO and CAO that any and all objects, items, or other property belonging to Righthaven should be delivered to the Receiver for auction. See NRS 32.010(3); Kaczynski, 446 F. Supp. 2d at 1153. F. The Relief Granted Should Include an Additional Award of Attorneys’ Fees for the Time Spent on this Motion and in Pursuit of Righthaven’s Assets, Generally. It is well settled that fees incurred in establishing a losing party’s fee liability are credited to the prevailing party. See Clark v. Los Angeles, 803 F.2d 987, 992 (9th Cir. 1986); In re Nucorp Energy, 764 F.2d 655, 661 (9th Cir. 1985). In this case, Righthaven’s intransigence has led to the expenditure of even more fees, which are properly taxed to Righthaven. Webb v. Ada County, 285 F.3d 829, 835 (9th Cir. 2002) (holding that fees expended in recovery of a judgment awarded under federal fee-shifting statute were recoverable from losing party). This should include the fees for drafting this Motion, any fees incurred in drafting a Reply Brief, and any other fees incurred by the Defendant and the court-appointed Receiver. G. Righthaven Will Seek Further Delays – This Court Should Not Grant Them. Righthaven has used each and every extension it received in this case to merely frustrate Hoehn’s resolution of this action. When Righthaven sought an extension to file its response to Hoehn’s motion to dismiss, it used the window of extension to radically amend its Strategic Alliance Agreement with Stephens in an effort to create standing where it was manifestly lacking - 10 -

(Docs. # 20, 22, 28). Once Hoehn obtained a judgment for his attorneys’ fees, Righthaven sought to stay its enforcement, receiving a 30-day stay (see Docs. # 52, 56) – only to not post a bond and force Hoehn to seek a writ of execution (Docs. # 58, 59) and the relief sought in this motion. Righthaven’s stalling is not a phenomenon limited to this case. When Righthaven was sanctioned by Judge Hunt in Democratic Underground, it failed to timely comply with the court’s sanction order, and sought an extension a day after its sanctions were due. Case No. 2:10cv-01356 (Doc. # 143) (D. Nev. July 29, 2011). Rather than explain its failure to comply, Righthaven informed the court that it was evaluating whether it could post a bond for the court’s monetary sanctions, and whether it could appeal the sanctions order. Id. This tactic bought Righthaven yet more time to make payments to its officers and other insiders, dissipating assets that it surely knew by that date, after receiving numerous adverse decisions,7 would be targeted by prevailing defendants who obtained attorneys’ fee awards – such as Hoehn. The longer Righthaven can delay its demise, the more assets it may transfer to its Chief Executive and Chief Administrative Officers, and counsel. Righthaven has no endgame in mind and, as this Court has noted, no likelihood of success on appeal (Doc. # 56). Thus, instead of satisfying Hoehn’s judgment and soldiering on to obtain vindication from the Court of Appeals, Righthaven seeks to live just another month so that it can further enrich its insiders at Hoehn’s expense. These fraudulent transfers are the only outcome of Righthaven’s delays. As Hoehn has provided Righthaven with the documentation necessary to effect the assignment of its rights to a Receiver in Exhibits C, D, E and F, seven days will be more than adequate time for Righthaven to comply with this Court’s order. The task at hand for Righthaven is simple and

straightforward, and no accommodation should be given so that Righthaven has yet another opportunity to dissipate its assets in frustration of Hoehn’s lawful judgment.

28

By July 29, Righthaven’s claims had been dismissed for lack of standing in the Democratic Underground, Hoehn, DiBiase, Barham and Mostofi cases, and Hoehn and DiBiase had filed their respective motions for attorneys’ fees.

Conclusion As Righthaven has refused to satisfy Hoehn’s judgment with money, Hoehn is entitled to fulfill his judgment through the sale of Righthaven’s property. This is no surprise to Righthaven, and its counsel even foresaw this outcome upon failing to post a bond for Hoehn’s judgment (Doc. # 52-1); Hoehn, Case No. 11-16995 (Docs. # 5-2, 6-2). After seeking relief from both this Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Righthaven’s fate is sealed (Docs. # 56, 57). The laws of the United States and Nevada provide a simple solution to judgment creditors in Hoehn’s predicament: The Court may appoint a receiver, in this case Ms. Pearson, to whom Righthaven assigns all of its property. The receiver shall then conduct a commercially

reasonable sale of all of Righthaven’s intellectual property. Righthaven is the stuff of legend. The intense media focus placed on Righthaven, which Righthaven begged for, suggests that the public will turn out to seek a piece of this company – which could have avoided all of this by posting a mere $34,045.50 bond. It is clear that Righthaven would prefer not to respect the judicial process. Granting this Motion will render its preference irrelevant, but will ensure that Hoehn does not wind up being wholly uncompensated, and it will serve the public interest by sending a clear signal that those who defy this court’s orders may not do so without consequence.

His response expressed concern that Mr. Gibson is unable execute the assignment agreements absent consent from the other limited-liability company member and stated that Mr. Gibson cannot execute copyright assignments purporting to transfer “any and all copyrights owned,” since the district court determined that Righthaven does not own the copyrights to be assigned. (See Id.) I informed Mr. Magano that I understand Righthaven is to execute assignments of whatever rights it may possess, if any. (Pearson Decl. Exhs. 12, 14.) I have tried to work with Righthaven to ensure its compliance with the Court's December 12, 2011 Order, but Righthaven has refused to execute the copyright assignments and has ignored repeated requests for a trademark assignment and an inventory of physical assets without explanation. (Pearson Decl. ¶ 32.) I provided a courtesy copy of this Notice to Righthaven prior to filing (Pearson Decl. Exh. 16), but Righthaven’s counsel did not respond to my request to avoid judicial intervention. (Pearson Decl. ¶ 34.) Accordingly, I request guidance from the Court as to whether Righthaven is required to transfer any and all rights it may possess (even if none) in order to effectuate the court’s December 12, 2011 Order.

Mark trademarks or any of its tangible assets. Righthaven also has not provided any plausible explanation for its failure to comply with the December 12, 2011 Order. Righthaven similarly appears to have ceased participating in Case No. 2:10-cv-01343, also before this Court. Righthaven failed to comply with the February 7, 2012 Order requiring it to provide certain documents on that day as well as additional information by February 14, 2012 (Doc. # 105). Activity in that case is relevant to the instant case because I have informed all parties in both cases of my agreement to be bound by the Protective Order in Case No. 2:10-cv01343. All parties in both cases know that I intend to review any information obtained that may lead to the identification, location and auction of property to be auctioned under my Receivership. Accordingly, I seek assistance from the Court in enforcing the December 12, 2011 Order in order to enable me to carry out my duties as the Receiver. Respectfully submitted,

2:11-CV-00050-PMP-RJJ ORDER TRANSFERRING INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY TO RECEIVER LARA PEARSON

ORDER Pursuant to this Court’s Oral Order during the March 5, 2012 hearing on Defendant Wayne Hoehn’s (“Hoehn[‘s]”) Motion for Writ of Body Attachment (Doc. # 68), this Court hereby orders the transfer of all of Righthaven’s intellectual property and intangible property to the Receiver appointed in this case, Lara Pearson (the “Receiver”), in order to give effect to this Court’s December 12, 2011 Order requiring Righthaven to transfer its intellectual property to the Receiver for auction. (Docs. # 62, 66.) On June 20, 2011, this Court dismissed Righthaven’s copyright infringement action against Hoehn. (Doc. # 28.) Following the Court’s dismissal of Righthaven’s case, Hoehn was awarded attorneys’ fees and costs in the amount of $34,045.50. (Doc. # 43.) Righthaven appealed this decision to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. (Doc. # 45.) However, Righthaven refused to post a supersedeas bond for $34,045.50 as required by

Fed. R. Civ. P. 62(d) in order to stay Hoehn’s enforcement of his judgment. (Doc. # 56.) Righthaven’s requests for relief before this Court, as well as its two emergency motions before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals seeking relief from Hoehn’s enforcement efforts, were denied. (Docs. # 56, 57, 78.) In connection with the Defendant’s judgment enforcement efforts, the Court appointed the Receiver to, among other things, seize the copyrights assigned to Righthaven by various entities (the “Copyrights”), as well as its trademarks and other intangible property, so that they could be sold at auction. (Doc. # 62, 66.) Despite the Receiver’s efforts, Righthaven has not transferred its intellectual property. (Docs. # 70, 81, 82.) The only property that the Receiver has been able to obtain and auction is Righthaven’s former domain name, <righthaven.com>, which was sold for more than $3,000 in a commercially reasonable auction (Docs. # 81, 82). Based on the evidence submitted to the court by the Receiver (Docs. # 70, 82), Righthaven has failed to substantively participate in the orderly disposition and sale of its intangible assets as ordered on December 12, 2011. (Doc. # 66.) Moreover, Righthaven failed to appear at the originally scheduled January 5, 2012 debtor examination in this case, (Doc. # 71), and failed to appear at the March 5, 2012 hearing giving rise to this Order. (Doc. # 88.) In light of Righthaven’s lack of participation in these proceedings, and Hoehn’s entitlement to relief (Docs. # 62, 66), this Court concludes it is appropriate to transfer such rights as Righthaven may still hold in Righthaven’s intellectual property to the Receiver, Lara Pearson. The Court deems Righthaven’s conduct in this case to constitute its consent to this Order. With respect to Righthaven’s copyrights, the Court is empowered to accord this relief under 17 U.S.C. § 201(d)(1), which provides in relevant part that: The ownership of a copyright may be transferred in whole or in part by any means of conveyance or by operation of law (emphasis added).

This Court acknowledges that there is a dispute over what intellectual property rights Righthaven actually possesses. Nonetheless, the Court may use its powers under 17 U.S.C. § 201(d)(1) to transfer Righthaven’s copyright rights, whatever they are deemed to be, to the Receiver for auction pursuant to the Court’s December 12, 2011 order (Doc. # 66). While Righthaven has argued now that it does not have more than the bare right to sue, as this Court previously held, Righthaven does possess copyright registrations that can be assigned by operation of law. The copyright registrations to more than 275 works are in Righthaven’s name, can be transferred by this Court, and can then be auctioned by the Receiver. By operation of law as contemplated in 17 U.S.C. § 201(d)(1), this Court orders the transfer of any and all rights held by Righthaven LLC in each and every of the 278 works Righthaven LLC has registered with the U.S. Copyright Office as specified below, to the Receiver, Lara Pearson, in her capacity as receiver: Any and all rights held by Righthaven LLC in the work titled $1 million wager on game approved, bearing the Registration Number TX0007138813 in the U.S. Copyright Office, are assigned in full to Lara Pearson, as Receiver for Righthaven LLC, with Righthaven LLC retaining no rights in that work.

Righthaven funds that have been concealed from me1 to pursue appeals over rights that Righthaven no longer owns (Doc. # 90), and has done so in a manner that further imperils what is left of Righthaven’s assets with additional attorneys’ fees awards and sanctions. 2. Up until this point, it has been my understanding that both Steven Gibson and

Raisha Y. “Drizzle” Gibson ceased reporting to work, ceased functions as CEO and COO of the company, and were undertaking no further actions on its behalf. 3. As of June 25, 2012, I have formally notified Steven Gibson and Raisha Y.

“Drizzle” Gibson that they are terminated from any position with Righthaven, and that they are to immediately cease and desist from representing themselves as having any position of responsibility with the company. I have further ordered Righthaven’s new counsel, Miller Barondess LLP, to cease all work on the file and to notify me of any Righthaven funds in their trust account so that I may order any such fund transferred to me for disbursement. True and correct copies of these letters are attached as Exhibits B, C and D, respectively. 4. Righthaven appears to have retained this counsel and taken any action only in this

appeal against Mr. Hoehn, Case No. 11-16751. To the best of my knowledge, Righthaven has not retained Mr. Syverson or Miller Bardoness in its second concurrently pending appeal, Case No. 11-16995, nor in its other pending Ninth Circuit appeals, Righthaven v. DiBiase, Case No. 11-16776, and Righthaven v. Center for Intercultural Organizing, Case No. 11-16358. As such, Even if Mr. Syverson and his firm, Miller Barondess LLP, volunteered themselves for the Hoehn case pro bono, it is my sincere professional judgment that the appeal’s progression represents a material risk to the Righthaven receivership estate. In order for the appeals to have any positive effect, they must succeed on both fair use and standing to prevail on appeal, and if they do not, then Righthaven will incur even more debt in the form of Hoehn’s attorney’s fees on appeal. This court found, and the Ninth Circuit has twice held, that Righthaven does not enjoy a likelihood of success on appeal. (Docs. # 56, 57, 78) Every court that has examined Righthaven’s district court litigation has come to the same conclusion: It cannot sustain its infringement lawsuits. It is for this reason that I have also ordered that the appeals be terminated immediately, so as to stem additional losses to the Receivership estate. -21

Righthaven’s activity does not appear to be part of any legitimate business activity pursuing its legal rights. 5. While my powers as receiver entitle me to act on behalf of Righthaven and

terminate its executives, retain and discharge outside professionals, and repudiate its contracts under NRS Chapter 32, NRS 78.635 and 640, I submit this Notice to inform the court of the significant actions Mr. Gibson has taken without notifying or otherwise communicating with me. I also request that the court affirm my actions formally terminating Righthaven’s former officers along with its newly retained counsel as such actions are in the best interest of the company. BACKGROUND OF THE DISPUTE 6. On November 14, 2011, counsel for defendant Wayne Hoehn (“Hoehn”) moved

this court to (a) appoint me as the receiver for Righthaven LLC (“Righthaven”) pursuant to NRS 32.010, and (b) order Righthaven to assign its intellectual property to me for auction. (Doc. # 62 at 4-5) 7. Righthaven did not oppose this motion (Doc. # 64). On December 12, the Court

granted Hoehn’s motion and appointed me as Receiver for Righthaven (Doc. # 66). 8. Shortly after my appointment as Receiver, Righthaven’s counsel of record ceased

participating in the case, failing to communicate with me and, apparently, Hoehn’s counsel and the Court as well (Doc. # 82). To the best of my knowledge, Attorney Mangano has not withdrawn from representation of Righthaven and remains counsel of record in this case.

23 24 25 26 27 28 -39. While Righthaven resisted the Court’s order to transfer its intellectual property

rights, if any, to me (Docs. # 70, 82) – a necessary exercise to make transfer of its intellectual property effective, as explained in Hoehn’s motion for transfer of Righthaven’s intellectual

property (Doc. # 62) – the Court ultimately transferred Righthaven’s copyrights to me sua sponte in March 2012 (Doc. # 90). 10. Since becoming the sole guardian of Righthaven’s intellectual property, I have

worked diligently to dispose of such property in a manner that is in the company’s best interest to satisfy its judgment debts. As Righthaven is no longer filing new lawsuits, and both this Court and the Ninth Circuit have proclaimed the plaintiff to have little likelihood of success on appeal, I have determined that the best interests of the receivership estate lie in settling the claims for the hundreds of thousands of dollars of judgments entered against it in this case. 11. Moreover, as Righthaven no longer owns any of the copyright rights it originally

sued Hoehn and others for infringing, it no longer possesses standing to pursue its claims before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals or any other Court. (Doc. # 90) This further affirms my view that the receivership estate’s best interests at this point are served by making the estate as productive as possible for its many creditors, and by terminating the existing appeals. THE PRESENT DISPUTE 12. On or around April 16, 2012, Hoehn’s counsel asked me about Righthaven’s

retention of Miller Barondess LLP and one of its partners, Eric Syverson, as counsel of record in one of its appeals, Righthaven v. Hoehn, Case No. 11-6751. (See Exhibit A). This was the first time I was made aware that anyone aside from me was taking action in Righthaven’s name. 13. Syverson then filed a motion for extension of time to file excerpts of the record in

23 24 25 26 27 28 -4that case, correcting an error previously made by Righthaven’s counsel in that matter. A true and correct copy of this motion – including a declaration by Righthaven’s former CEO Steven Gibson in its support – is attached hereto as Exhibit E.

14.

Prior to Hoehn’s counsel informing me of this development, I was unaware that

Steven Gibson was seeking outside counsel for Righthaven, taking any actions on the company’s behalf, committing any funds for its activities, or entering into any contracts for its operations. To the contrary, my belief was that Mr. Gibson ceased working for Righthaven in Septeberm

15.

Righthaven has expended further resources engaging Miller Barondess and

Attorney Syverson to draft a 30-page reply brief – approximately six months after it was due – and submitting it to the Court of Appeals with a motion for leave for late filing of the brief. A true and correct copy of this motion and accompanying brief is attached hereto as Exhibit F. 16. Once again, I was unaware of Mr. Gibson’s actions; these expenditures and

actions on behalf of Righthaven are not authorized, and were made – presumably intentionally on Mr. Gibson’s part – without my knowledge or permission as receiver for the company. 17. Mr. Gibson has never contact me since the time of my appointment. He certainly

has not explained to me why he retained new counsel for this appeal without my knowledge, much less authorization, and in doing so exposed Righthaven to additional risk in the form of attorney fee liability, while ostensibly committing Righthaven’s funds to a use other than satisfaction of its many judgments. THE REMEDIAL ACTIONS 18. Nevada Revised Statutes 32.010 allows the receiver to be appointed and act to

23 24 25 26 27 28 -5effect a judgment and commence proceedings in aid of execution, and act as “in all other cases where receivers have heretofore been appointed by the usages of the courts of equity.” 19. Receivers have broad, almost limitless equitable powers. As illustrative

examples, NRS 78.635 and 78.640 provide broad powers to court-appointed receivers, and under

Case: 11-16751 07/05/2012 ID: 8239012 92DktEntry: 34-2 Page: 99 of 8 (109 of 129) Case 2:11-cv-00050-PMP -RJJ Document Filed 06/25/12 Page 6 of 119

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22

NRS 78.635, a receiver has the ability to demand, sue for, collect, receive and take into possession all of the chattel, rights, money, and property of the company in receivership. 20. Additionally, NRS 78.640 empowers the receiver to step into the shoes of the

company in receivership, with all of its “franchises, rights, privileges and effects” vesting in the receiver – and being divested from the company. 21. I have exercised my powers as receiver to terminate and renounce contracts held

and made by the insolvent company. Jones v. Free, 83 Nev. 31, 38 (Nev. 1967). “We think we may take judicial knowledge of the fate of contracts made by an insolvent […] company which passes into the hands of a receiver and are not assumed by him. Such contracts are practically ended.” Kan. City S. R. Co. v. Lusk, 224 F. 704, 706 (8th Cir. 1915); see Peabody Coal Co. v. Nixon, 226 F. 20, 22-23 (8th Cir. 1915). 22. Although I considered Righthaven’s agreements and relationships with Steven A.

Gibson and Raisha Y. Gibson to have terminated long before my Receivership began, and certainly upon the date that I was appointed as Receiver for the company. Consistent with my authority, I served formal written termination notices on Mr. and Mrs. Gibson today informing them of this fact. (Exhibits B and C) While I could have taken this action sooner in the receivership process, there did not appear to be any need to do so, as to my knowledge Mr. Gibson was no longer acting on behalf of Righthaven, and as he is an attorney, I presumed that he would know that he has no right to take such actions while a Receiver is in charge of

23 24 25 26 27 28 -6Righthaven. Now, he is explicitly barred from taking such ultra vires acts, or attempting to do so through his spouse. 23. It is my intention to further exercise my powers as Receiver to explore recovery

of some of Righthaven’s losses from Steven Gibson, Raisha Gibson, and perhaps from Shawn

Mangano in malpractice or other actions. I have not yet retained counsel to do so, but I am in the process of reviewing attorneys who may be retained for this purpose on a contingent fee basis. 24. Similarly, I exercised my authority to repudiate the contract Righthaven entered

into with Miller Barondess and Attorney Syverson, ordering the Mr. Syverson and his firm to cease all work on Righthaven’s appeals and provide an accounting of Righthaven’s trust funds to the receivership estate. (Exhibit D)

CONCLUSION 25. 26. I request that the Court take notice of and ratify my actions, detailed above. I shall continue to exercise control of the company to complete the liquidation of

its assets and to seek recovery of losses caused to the company by the Gibsons and/or the company’s former counsel. 27. Finally, once the liquidation of Righthaven is complete and its claims against

counsel realized, I intend to petition the Court for complete dissolution of Righthaven under NRS 86.495. I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct to the best of my knowledge. Respectfully submitted this 25th day of June, 2012.

MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES INTRODUCTION Despite all of the negative personal attacks in the blogosphere and the less than, in my opinion, entirely fair and balanced reporting by the Las Vegas Sun, Righthaven has brought to fore some critical issues: (a) the scope of Silvers v. Sony Pictures Entm’t Inc., 402 F.3d 881, 884 (9th Cir. 2005), and (b) the ability of courts to decline subject matter jurisdiction and then continue to rule on fair use, attorneys’ fees and the appointment of receivers. Righthaven has been famously covered by a myriad of publishers including one recent ABA Journal article asking whether Righthaven was, in fact, right. The American system of justice requires that if this Court did not, in fact, have jurisdiction to rule on attorneys’ fees and/or appoint the Receiver, then the Ninth Circuit be allowed to address that possible difference of opinion. Otherwise, a fundamental precept of justice will be subverted. Indeed, precluding justice is hardly just. Attempting to prevent the appellate process from coming to full fruition is not a just goal and hardly within the realm of equitable action. The right of appeal is a fundamental linchpin of our democratic structure. It would be an affront to the essential foundation of the U.S. judicial system if this Court would permit the Receiver to subvert an appellate process that questions this Court’s very jurisdiction to have even appointed the Receiver. This honorable Court is above the anti-democratic result of not allowing its rulings to be subject to appellate review. While the Receiver has appointed new appellate counsel, the Receiver has questioned the propriety of the appeal itself – which is no surprise given that the appeal draws into question the propriety of the Receiver. Indeed, new appellate counsel was formerly adverse to Righthaven and made no secret of his anti-Righthaven feelings. To have such counsel now be Righthaven’s purported advocate is a tragic, unjust irony. Let’s call a spade a spade: the Receiver, joined by Mr. Randazza, does not want to have counsel chosen by me (the manager of the manager of Righthaven) make oral argument before the Ninth Circuit. The Receiver has chosen anti-Righthaven counsel who, no doubt, will either

dismiss the appeal or may otherwise not make as robust oral argument as current appellate counsel. While this objection is focused directly on the subject of the Receiver’s attempted termination of me as CEO (as I do not represent Righthaven and am before this Court in my personal capacity only), perhaps the most salient notion is that equity should permit Righthaven counsel to finish the appellate process and make oral argument (and allow me as CEO, or at least manager, to directly engage counsel to do so). Oral argument is effectively the only real step left in the appellate process and it is unfathomable how not allowing the judicial process to proceed with Righthaven counsel appearing before the Ninth Circuit would be wrongful, unjust or inequitable (particularly when no Righthaven assets are being used in the process). Regardless, and even more appalling, the Receiver, in its notification, has not followed this Court’s rules regarding notice and hearing and, as such, the Receiver’s acts ought not be given effect without the Receiver following this Court’s rules. Independently, the Receiver has acted well outside the scope of her authority. The Court empowered the Receiver to deal with Righthaven’s intellectual property – and that is all. Indeed, the Receiver has concluded her business with respect to same. The Court did not generally order that the Receiver do more. The Receiver’s belief that she is generally in charge of Righthaven is not consistent with this Court’s order. As such, the Receiver has acted outside her authority and, frankly, the termination of the receivership is proper, particularly as this receiver has demonstrated a willingness to ignore this Court’s rules and pursue an agenda well outside the scope of her equitable mandate. Independently, Righthaven has clearly been prejudiced in 2012 by the inexplicable nonappearance, and non-withdrawal, of Righthaven’s legal counsel (the only one who can appear on behalf of Righthaven as I am not attorney of record). Basically, Righthaven has been left utterly defenseless by the inexcusable absence of counsel. To have the Receiver try to further prejudice the cause of justice by precluding Righthaven appellate counsel from simply making oral argument would be inequitable, to say the least.

If this Court were to now expand the Receiver’s authority, query what equity would require. As expressed to this Court in other proceedings, unless something untoward has occurred, there should remain some Righthaven furniture and equipment in storage. Righthaven has no cash. If this Court exercises its understandably broad discretion to empower the Receiver to liquidate the tangible assets as it has empowered the Receiver to liquidate the intangible assets, then there should be no objection (other than this Court’s jurisdiction remains in question and the subject of appeal). However, there is nothing more for the Receiver to manage or address other than to frustrate the judicial appellate process on an unwarranted basis. Indeed, the Receiver should know exactly where the remaining tangible assets of Righthaven can be found. No Righthaven assets are being used to compensate appellate counsel on the appeal. As such, there is nothing for the Receiver to concern herself with other than to perhaps pursue a curious path of trying to prevent oral argument before the Ninth Circuit. Defendant has already attempted, and failed, to dismiss the appeal based upon the fact that Mr. Mangano failed to perform. The Ninth Circuit denied the motion to dismiss obviously thereby expressing its interest in having the appeal proceed. Even if the Receiver’s termination of me as CEO was somehow within her authority and done within the parameters of permitted procedure, the Receiver’s position that that somehow divests me of authority would be wrong. A limited liability company is ultimately governed by its members and the members have chosen Net Sortie Systems, LLC (“Net Sortie”) as its statutory manager. I am the manager of Net Sortie. While the manager manages the CEO, in the absence of a CEO, the manager would assume management of all affairs of Righthaven. As such, until the Receiver gains this Court’s authority, if ever, to also effectively terminate me as manager and then somehow also terminate the rights of the remaining members to have Righthaven governed by its members (as member-managers), then the Receiver’s conclusion that I no longer have any authority is simply wrong. The Receiver’s belief that the attempted transfer of what this Court determined were copyrights not held by Righthaven negates the vitality of the appeal is simply wrong. If the copyrights were indeed transferred, the right to pursue accrued actions was not and certainly the

rights in this litigation were not transferred. That would have been an entirely wrongful and inequitable result. This Court’s jurisdiction to have entered attorneys’ fees awards and to thereby give rise to the Receiver remains the subject of vibrant appellate dispute. As this honorable Court surely recognizes that there are at least serious questions posed by these jurisdictional questions, equity argues in favor of permitting the vetting of that issue before the Ninth Circuit. It is the just result.

STATEMENT OF FACTS The Receiver was appointed by this Court as the receiver of “Plaintiff Righthaven LLC’s

intellectual property”. (Doc. #62-10). The Receiver has issued its Notification, Doc. #92 (the “Notification”) terminating me without any notification of hearing. In the Notification, the Receiver terminated Miller Barondess as legal counsel for Righthaven. Mr. Randazza, counsel for Defendant, issued a statement to the press arising out of the Notification that he looks forward to having a drink in the context of Righthaven v. Gibson. See Exhibit 1. The Ninth Circuit only has oral argument to hear on the appeal of this case as a matter of Ninth Circuit record. Also as a matter of Ninth Circuit record is the denial of Appellee’s motion to dismiss and the granting of Appellant’s motion to correct certain defects of prior failings of Mr. Mangano (see Exhibit 2), unwithdrawn legal counsel of Righthaven whose whereabouts are unknown (See Exhibit 3, a declaration previously filed with this Court in another Righthaven matter). The Receiver has appointed Mr. Allen Lichtenstein as Righthaven legal counsel without any notice of hearing and without this Court’s permission. Mr. Lichtenstein has appeared in the Ninth Circuit in the appeal of this case. (See Exhibit 4). I remain manager of Net Sortie (see Exhibit 5) who remains manager of Righthaven (see Exhibit 6).

III.

ARGUMENT A. The Receiver Did Not Comply With This Court’s Rules In Issuing Its Notification The Receiver has fundamentally failed to abide by this Court’s rules regarding reports of

receivers and has failed in particular with respect to the Notification. Local Rule 66-4 governs reports of receivers. There does not appear to be any evidence that the Receiver has complied in any respect with the requirements of report filings and hearings as required by LR 66-4. There appears to have been no hearing in which Righthaven has been notified with respect to any report(s) filed, if any, pursuant LR 66-4 and there appears to have been no hearing at all regarding the approval or disapproval of the Receiver’s report, if any, or the determination of whether the “receivership may continue”.2 Indeed, as the Receiver’s liquidation of the intellectual property assets, as they were, has concluded, the continuation of the receivership would appear dubious at best. Moreover, at least with equal seriousness, the Receiver’s further report by way of the Notification to the Court failed to also meet with Local Rule 66-5 requiring the giving to “all interested parties and creditors at least fourteen (14) days notice of the time and place of hearings of . . . (a) All further reports of the receiver . . .”. There has been no notice of hearing of whatsoever nature. Indeed, it appears as if the Receiver has altogether ignored her duties under the Local Rules. For these reasons alone, the acts of the Receiver, at a minimum, should be subject to the notice and hearing requirements and, as a Court-appointed arm, the Receiver should be held to the highest standard; the Receiver’s failure to follow court rules draws into serious question the continued propriety of this Receiver as the receiver. Certainly, the Receiver made, for the first time, efforts to notify me directly at my work email address of the Notification. As such, the Receiver has demonstrated an ability to find the means to provide me notice of any hearing – but, as an interested party presently, I have not received any hearing notice or any prior communication from the Receiver (other than by way of Mr. Mangano prior to February). Also as an interested party, and as Mr. Mangano’s whereabouts are unknown, I As Mr. Mangano has not been communicative with me since February, 2012, it is possible that he is aware of something that I am not particularly as I am not counsel and therefore have not received notifications as counsel would.

certainly desire a hearing so that finally someone interested in something other than Mr. Randazza’s agenda3 is before the Court.4 While the Receiver did not inform me of same, I learned that the Receiver hired Mr. Lichtenstein as Righthaven counsel for the appeal. It should be noted that the Receiver, yet again, failed to follow this Court’s rules in hiring Mr. Lichtenstein. Local Rule 66-6 clearly provides that “[a] receiver shall not employ an attorney . . . without first obtaining an order of the court authorizing such employment.” It does not appear that this Court has issued any order authorizing such employment. Moreover, the Receiver’s choice of Mr. Lichtenstein is dubious. Mr. Lichtenstein was, prior to withdrawing and/or substituting out of the case in the face of a Rule 11 motion, adverse to Righthaven when he previously represented a Righthaven defendant. As such, there is at least circumstantial evidence that Mr. Lichtenstein has a motivation that is not one of zealous advocacy of Righthaven’s position. Indeed, I would not waive the conflict of interest if somehow Mr. Lichtenstein was an appropriate candidate to represent Righthaven. He was adverse to Righthaven on the same subject matter which would appear to pose a conflict, arguably not waivable. I suspect that Mr. Lichtenstein will do nothing more than dismiss the appeal – a mere tactic driven by Mr. Randazza to subvert the clear desire of the real Righthaven to have vindication of Righthaven’s interests by way of appeal. In addition, the Receiver’s supervision of appellate counsel is dubious as the Receiver’s power is at some level the subject of the appeal. If this Court does not have jurisdiction, then the argument goes that this Court did not have the constitutional power to award prevailing party attorneys’ fees or do anything else beyond dismissal. For the Receiver to hire and supervise

Mr. Randazza has leveraged the Righthaven experience tremendously in the press and his vituperative remarks in the press and before this Court demonstrate, in my opinion, an approach of more than merely a scholarly, jurisprudentially-based examination of the merits of the issues. 4 Mr. Randazza has made numerous accusations before the Court that have gone unattended to by Mr. Mangano and to the extent that such accusations are relied upon by the Court in this present context, I would welcome the opportunity to address same. Indeed, he was recently quoted in the press as looking forward to having a drink in the advent of a misguided lawsuit of Righthaven vs. Gibson.

appellate counsel, the Receiver is effectively having to instruct counsel to argue successfully that the Receiver should not be in power. The Receiver is thus in a massive conflict of interest as is counsel appointed by the Receiver. There simply is no need for these issues. Present counsel is fully capable of making the oral argument and there is simply no need for the Receiver to interfere in this process. Of course, this assumes that Mr. Lichtenstein will in good faith even attempt an argument rather than merely dismiss the appeal. B. Even if the Receiver Followed Procedure, the Receiver Is Acting Outside Its Authority As the Receiver was appointed by this Court as “Receiver of Plaintiff Righthaven LLC’s intellectual property” and as the Receiver’s job has concluded with respect to effecting the transfer and/or other liquidation of Righthaven’s intellectual property, the further acts by the Receiver to terminate me as CEO, to hire Mr. Lichtenstein, to interview and attempt to procure contingency lawyers to engage in litigation not concerning the intellectual property and to take further acts as if the Receiver is generally in charge of Righthaven is both outside the scope of the Receiver’s authority, unnecessary and inappropriate. The role of the Receiver is limited. It is clear that the only authority sought by Hoehn from the Court was to have, effectively, the Receiver appointed to address, more or less, the liquidation of Righthaven’s intellectual property. Hoehn has clearly argued that the scope of the Receiver’s role would be with respect to the Court “to appoint a receiver for Righthaven’s intellectual property assets” (Doc. #62, p. 4). As already expressed, the Order generally provided for the Receiver to be the receiver of Righthaven’s intellectual property assets.5

While the coverage of the Order is specifically with respect to intellectual property, there was inserted a reference to the delivery of “tangible assets”. First, as Righthaven has no ability to pay for delivery, delivery would not be possible. It is my understanding that Mr. Mangano clarified with the Receiver the locations of the tangible assets that was also addressed to Mr. Randazza in a judgment debtor’s examination. To date, there appears to have been no attempt by the Receiver to work with the U.S. Marshal to obtain the tangible assets. To the extent that the Receiver desires to do so, the Receiver should have all the information required to obtain said tangible assets. This should be a simple logistical matter that ought not require any further court attention. Note further that Mr. Randazza took whatever funds were left in the Righthaven bank account further establishing the lack of funds possessed by Righthaven.

However, it is entirely unclear how preventing the appellate process to proceed (either by terminating me, present appellate counsel or hiring (without authority) Mr. Lichtenstein), so long as no Righthaven assets are used to do so, is somehow either a just cause for the Receiver to pursue, within the Receiver’s authority or equitable in nature. Rather, it appears that the Receiver is following the agenda of Mr. Randazza who apparently has a very serious concern that the Ninth Circuit will rule in Righthaven’s favor and unravel, finally, his vigorous press campaign, his personal attacks and any right to legal fees he currently enjoys. Unlike Mr. Randazza, Righthaven generally has made a conscious decision to not litigate matters in the press, to not engage in personal attacks either before the courts or otherwise and to address the legal arguments in a clinical fashion. Independently, as addressed more fully, infra, I remain the manager of the manager of Righthaven and I should have the right to hire or terminate Righthaven counsel. By way of this Objection, I hereby seek the Court’s recognition that I have the right to terminate, and so terminate, Mr. Lichtenstein’s so-called representation of Righthaven and that any further act undertaken by Mr. Lichenstein will not be undertaken with proper authority. Indeed, Mr. Lichtenstein’s confusing appearance before the Ninth Circuit should subject both the Receiver and Mr. Lichtenstein to liability. Mr. Lichtenstein should have known that the Receiver did not follow this Court’s rules in having himself employed as counsel and therefore his appearance before the Ninth Circuit is per se malpractice and unprofessional. Mr. Lichtenstein should also have known that I remain the manager of the manager of Righthaven and therefore retain authority to conduct the affairs of Righthaven (which, as made clear, merely constitute the interface with appellate counsel to conduct the appeal as Righthaven has literally no other activity).6

The Receiver has made mention that a malpractice action against Mr. Mangano may be appropriate. I would not argue with same and would be delighted to work with a newlyappointed receiver (one that follows this Court’s rules) to pursue same to the extent that this Court believes that another receiver is required.

C. Regardless, the Receiver’s Attempted Prevention of Oral Argument Is Inequitable, Inefficient And Curious Assuming arguendo that the Receiver was vested with general power over all the affairs of Righthaven regardless of their nature, it is inexplicable that the Receiver, unless pursuing a curious agenda, would be acting appropriately or equitably in attempting to preclude appellate counsel, acting on my instructions on behalf of Righthaven, from making oral argument. By the time the Receiver issued the Notification, virtually all appellate briefing has been completed. Righthaven appellate counsel filed a motion to late file a reply brief given the failure of Mr. Mangano to do so and attached the proposed reply brief. In theory, as Mr. Randazza opposes such motion to late file, Righthaven appellate counsel could file a reply brief, but that would be elective. Moreover, given that the reply brief is elective in and of itself, nothing now precludes oral argument. As such, the only thing remaining is the Ninth Circuit to set a hearing date and hear from the litigants. The oral argument itself should not absorb more than a couple of hours. Therefore, appellate counsel merely has a few hours of oral argument and it is hoped not more than a few hours of preparation time in addition. Therefore, the Receiver appears to be attempting to inequitably prevent7 a few hours of appellate counsel work that in no manner adversely affects Righthaven or its creditors – unless, of course, Righthaven succeeds in appeal in which case Righthaven should have no judgment creditors. Therefore, query what positive, equitable agenda is achieved by preventing the appeal to come to a conclusion. Arguably, one agenda only: Mr. Randazza’s personal invective and attempt to not have his attorneys’ fees rulings overturned. However, preventing justice is hardly a means to justice. It is black-letter law that the purpose and parameter of a receiver’s role is equitable in nature. Therefore, even if the Receiver had the power and authority to terminate me as CEO and therefore my instructions to appellate counsel, how subverting the appellate process is equitable is unfathomable.

I understand that if Mr. Lichtenstein is appropriately instituted as counsel that he, in theory, could make oral argument, but query why Mr. Lichtenstein as opposed to appellate counsel who drafted, at least in part, the briefing before the Ninth Circuit and clearly is attempting to vindicate the real interests of Righthaven.

Independently, there is an amicus brief filed in favor of Righthaven that squarely addresses this Court’s jurisdiction to decide the fair use issue (after this Court decided that it did not, in fact, have subject matter jurisdiction over the case at all). Presumably, permitting not only Righthaven to pursue appellate decision, but other amicus, would maximize an equitable result. Allowing this particular appeal to move forward is also judicially efficient. First, the appeal is almost done. Second, if the Receiver’s termination of me as CEO were to stand, then such action in this Court, in theory, ought to provide me with an opportunity to appeal. I would, also in theory, have the right to appeal on the very same basis as Righthaven is currently appealing: that this Court, having declined subject matter jurisdiction, no longer has jurisdiction over this case, did not have jurisdiction to award prevailing party attorneys’ fees and thus did not have jurisdiction that gave rise to the Receiver, i.e., the termination was ultimately grounded upon this Court’s jurisdiction, which it declined. Another view is that the Receiver’s authority is grounded upon this Court’s rightful continued assumption of jurisdiction. Rather than Righthaven pursuing the appeal, it would be myself as an interested and affected party, but the issue would be identical. Of course, if I were to win the appeal, then the result would by definition be the same with this Court’s actions in the absence of subject matter jurisdiction overturned. On the other hand, if my aforementioned theory of appeal is wrong and if Mr. Randazza’s hoped-for drink-inducing event occurs whereby the Receiver instructs counsel to sue me on some strange malpractice action, a defense of mine will surely be that the underlying jurisdiction of this Court and thus ability to even appoint the Receiver was inappropriate (one of the same issues presently on appeal). Thus, having the Ninth Circuit set oral argument and have counsel actually advocating strongly the absence of this Court’s jurisdiction is the most efficient path to have ultimate resolution of the relevant issues. D. The Ninth Circuit Appears To Desire That the Appellate Process Conclude The Ninth Circuit appears to be proceeding towards oral argument. I trust that this Court can take judicial notice that the Ninth Circuit, at times, rules on appeals without undertaking oral argument. Indeed, oftentimes the Ninth Circuit will rule on appeals fairly rapidly on the briefs

submitted. Despite Mr. Mangano’s failures to file a reply and to also fail to abide by other procedures, the Ninth Circuit has permitted current appellate counsel to correct certain of Mr. Mangano’s failures and has not yet ruled, presumably anticipating oral argument. This permission was even in the face of a very aggressive motion to dismiss on the part of Mr. Randazza wherein he advanced, illucidly, tangential matters such as an argument to pierce the corporate veil. Without need for Righthaven to even brief a reply, the Ninth Circuit granted Righthaven’s motion to have Mr. Mangano’s failures corrected and denied Mr. Randazza’s motion to dismiss. Clearly, if the Ninth Circuit was of a mind to not permit the appeal to move forward, granting the motion to dismiss would have been an option. Also before the Ninth Circuit is the amicus brief which sets forth that not merely Righthaven counsel believes that this Court did not have jurisdiction to make further rulings after this Court declined jurisdiction.8 E. The Appeal Is the Most Effective Path For Righthaven to Satisfy The Accounts of Non-Judgment Creditors Practically, only if Righthaven succeeds on appeal will Righthaven be able to return to a going concern and thus satisfy the debts of non-judgment creditors; if Righthaven succeeds, then there should be no judgment creditors. While the Receiver presumably believes that funds might be made available through some form of malpractice action against Mr. Mangano or myself, that does not appear to be well-founded. Mr. Mangano’s poor conduct, for the most part, happened after January, 2012 and may not create the damage structure the Receiver anticipates. As there was more than just a reasonable jurisprudential basis for every single Righthaven action, although courts have certainly held that the assignment structure was not legally sustainable, that does not mean there was malpractice. If that were true, then there would arguably be malpractice

This also demonstrates the illucidity of the Receiver’s drumbeat that the appeal is not going to be successful and that there was somehow malpractice in bringing the actions originally brought by Righthaven. It should be noted that some of the finest attorneys in the nation, including, without limitation, Harvard Professor Dale Cendali, of Kirkland & Ellis, drafted briefs on behalf of Righthaven carefully articulating the propriety of Righthaven’s legal actions and underlying jurisprudential basis. To claim that malpractice exists would be an indictment as well of Judge Navarro’s decision in another Righthaven case whereby Judge Navarro differed from other decisions in this district and assumed jurisdiction. Variant judicial decisions and the articulate, well-grounded briefing by established copyright counsel do not malpractice make.

every time one side loses an argument before the court. As indicated, Righthaven has been provided counsel by some of the best legal minds in the nation well-experienced in copyright law. The various courts that have ruled on Righthaven issues have varied significantly in their jurisprudential positions. Even the Ninth Circuit was split in the Silvers decision (7-4). If Righthaven is merely seen as having attempted to advance the law and clarify a fact-pattern significantly stronger than the Silvers fact-pattern, then that does not constitute malpractice. The years that will be consumed and the unlikelihood of success on the merits of a malpractice action make such strategy nothing more than a vehicle of harassment. F. The Receiver’s Belief that CEO Termination Negates My Authority Is In Error Even if I am terminated as CEO, I remain manager of the manager and thus in a position of controlling authority to at least administer the appeal – presently the only “business” of Righthaven. Righthaven does nothing now other than administer the appeal. It does not conduct any business and has no revenue stream. To the extent that this Court requires further assistance with the disposition of tangible assets, that would be some further Righthaven business. However, a debtor’s examination has already occurred where tangible assets were identified as were the location of those tangible assets. However, despite no doubt having knowledge of same, the Receiver has apparently declined to take any action to liquidate such tangible assets. As Righthaven has no funds, it is not in a condition to deliver to the Receiver a bunch of desks, chairs and the like. In sum, termination of me as CEO does not negate my statutorily-granted authority as manager. If the Receiver actually terminated me rightfully as CEO and acting as manager would subvert the spirit of the Receiver’s actions, then that might be worthy of consideration. However, that is not the case – particularly as I have not even had the opportunity to have a hearing before this Court on this issue to understand this Court’s position. G. The Receiver’s Belief that Transfer of Copyrights Negates The Appeal Is In Error To suggest that Righthaven’s appeal is subverted by the attempted transfer of something associated with the copyrights is not legally grounded and certainly not what was anticipated by this Court when granting such attempted transfer. I cannot believe that this Court would subvert the appeal by issuing such order.

See H. The Challenge To this Court’s Jurisdiction In A Democracy Ought to Be Able to Proceed The law that this Court, upon declining jurisdiction, no longer had jurisdiction to do such thing as award attorneys’ fees is clear and therefore that issue at least poses a serious question that equity and justice require the Ninth Circuit hear. In Righthaven’s appellate brief, Righthaven set forth a very powerful jurisprudential basis for the proposition that this Court could not take further action after declining jurisdiction: Numerous courts from a variety of jurisdictions have held that there cannot be an award of attorneys’ fees unless has jurisdiction over the action absent an award of fees as sanctions. See Brereton v. Bountiful City Corp., 434 F.3d 1213, 1216 (10th Cir. 2006) (“[T]he court having determined that it lacks subject matter jurisdiction over the action, is incapable of reaching a disposition on the merits of the underlying claims.”)(emphasis in original); Hudson v. Principi, 260 F.3d 1357, 1363 (Fed. Cir. 2001) (“This court and others have established that there cannot be an award of attorneys’ fees unless the court has jurisdiction of the action.”); W.G. v. Senatore, 18 F.3d 60, 64 (2d Cir. 1994) (“Where there is no subject matter jurisdiction to proceed with the substantive claim, as a matter of law ‘that lack of jurisdiction bars and award of attorneys fees under [42 U.S.C. §] 1988.”) (internal brackets omitted); Johnson-Manville Corp. v. United States, 893 F.2d 324, 328 (Fed. Cir. 1989) (finding a lack of subject matter jurisdiction barred fee award); Lane v. United States, 727 F.2d 18, 20-21 (1st Cir. 1984) (determining that a want of subject matter jurisdiction precluded an award of fees). Consistent with the decisions from other circuits, this Court has determined under at least two federal statutes that a lack of subject matter jurisdiction precluded an award attorney’s fees. See United States v. 87 Skyline Terrace, 26 F.3d 923, 927 n.6 (9th Cir. 1994) (listing cases holding that “subject matter jurisdiction is a condition precedent to an award of fees under the EAJA”); Branson v. Nott, 62 F.3d 287, 293 (9th Cir. 1995) (declining to confer prevailing party status under 42 U.S.C. § 1988 where subject matter jurisdiction was lacking); Clark v. Busey, 959 F.2d 808, 810 (9th Cir. 1992) (“Subject matter jurisdiction to decide the merits of the underlying action is a condition precedent to an award of fees or costs under the EAJA.”) (internal quotations omitted). Barring the recovery of attorney’s fees under such circumstances is wholly consistent with this Court’s finding that district court action beyond dismissal after subject matter is found lacking would be vacated as a nullity.

Finn, 341 U.S. 6, 18 (1951) (requiring a district court to vacate judgment after having determined that the district court lacked subject matter jurisdiction over the suit); see also United States v. 51 Pieces of Real Prop., Roswell, N.M., 17 F.3d 1306, 1309 (10th Cir. 1994) (“[A] judgment is void if the court that enters it lacks jurisdiction over . . . the subject matter of the action.”); Peralta Shipping Corp. v. Smith & Johnson (Shipping) Corp., 739 F.2d 798, 804 n.6 (2d Cir. 1984) (“[A] judgment entered by a court lacking in subject matter jurisdiction may not stand.”). In sum, the foregoing authorities are in agreement that a district court’s entry of relief following dismissal for lack of subject matter jurisdiction cannot stand. The amicus brief also argued comparably that this Court, having declined jurisdiction, could not have continued to rule effectively on fair use: The district court should not have considered the merits of the defendant’s motion for summary judgment due to Righthaven’s lack of standing. See Giddings v. Vision House Productions, Inc., 584 F. Supp. 2d 1222, 1229 (D. Ar. 2008) (declining to address the merits of summary judgment motion where plaintiff did not own copyrights at issue); see also Charles Allan Wright & Arthur R. Miller, et al., 13A Federal Practice & Procedure § 3531 (3d ed. 2011) (“The fear that unnecessary decisions will prove unwise is deepened by the belief that the functional needs of the adversary system require litigants who will be affected tangibly by the decision.”). In the absence of subject matter jurisdiction, the court did not have the authority to adjudicate the claim. See Steel Co. v. Citizens for a Better Env’t, 523 U.S. 83, 101 (1998) (“Hypothetical jurisdiction produces nothing more than a hypothetical judgment -- which comes to the same thing as an advisory opinion, disapproved by this Court from the beginning.”). This Court should vacate the portion of the district court’s order that granted the defendant’s motion for summary judgment. See Orff v. United States, 358 F.3d 1137, 1149 (9th Cir. 2005) (where subject matter jurisdiction was lacking, district court orders were vacated as “nullities”), aff’d, 545 U.S. 596 (2005); California, 215 F.3d at 1014 (vacating district court judgment in favor of defendant due to lack of subject matter jurisdiction). I urge that my termination as CEO was singularly designed to do one thing: subvert the appeal as the only thing I am doing as CEO is directing appellate counsel. As such, allowing me

to continue as CEO and/or manager is effectively doing nothing more than permitting me to interface authoritatively with appellate counsel with respect to oral argument.

IV.

CONCLUSION For the foregoing reasons: (a) my termination of CEO should not be permitted; (b) at a

minimum, a hearing should occur; (c) the Receiver’s continued appointment should be drawn into serious question; (d) Mr. Lichtenstein should be immediately forced to withdraw from any representation; and (e) the oral argument before the Ninth Circuit should not be further subverted by the Receiver.

Respectfully submitted this 2nd day of July, 2012.
