The U.S. Marshals Service has made some progress in seizing the assets of copyright company Righthaven LLC, disclosing Thursday it has served a writ of execution on a Las Vegas bank branch.Alas, it was only $1000, and Righthaven continues to operate. Righthaven's CEO has been ordered to appear at a judgment debtor's hearing, where he will be required to testify under oath where their assets are located. (Answers such as, "in our secret, offshore account" and "it all just disappeared" are likely to get some serious consequences, so we can hope Gibson is as arrogant in that hearing as he has been all along.)\
A court filing said a writ of execution of a judgment against Righthaven was served Tuesday at a Bank of Nevada branch and that the writ says "seize all assets in the Righthaven LLC operating account and any other bank accounts belonging to Righthaven LLC." The bank branch's operations manager was served with the writ.
Gibson is dragging this thing out as long as he can--I sure hope that the final result is his personal bankruptcy, jail time for contempt, and perhaps some prison time for fraudulent transfer of assets in anticipation of bankruptcy.
