MIght There Be A Conflict Of Interest Here?

I mentioned earlier that the Nevada Bar Association was investigating complaints about Righthaven.  But guess who the Chair of the Nevada Bar Association is?  Mark A. Hinueber--right on the masthead of Nevada Lawyer magazine.  And who is Mark A. Hinueber?  General Counsel of Stephens Media, who signed the contract between Righthaven and Stephens Media that Judge Hunt decided was deceptive.

But I am sure that this relationship would never cloud the judgment of the Nevada Bar Association.  Never!

CORRECTION: He is chair of the editorial board of the Nevada Bar Association's journal, Nevada Lawyer. Not quite so dramatic a problem.
