Photog takes the 2/1000ths and runs
The photographer who just six weeks ago was claiming $385,000 in damages for alleged theft of his work by a Charlottesville blog has settled for $750, less than two one-thousandths of the amount he initially claimed, according to Cvillain, the alleged tortfeasor.
Reached by telephone at her Atlanta law office, lead attorney Carolyn Wright declined to say why she launched a lawsuit– with co-counsel in Charlottesville in the form of Tremblay & Smith– only to let it go for less than some Charlottesville lawyers charge for two hours of their time.
"I'm not going to comment on litigation," said Wright.
Even when it's over?
In a surprising epilogue, just a few hours after announcing the lawsuit settlement, Kyle Redinger, operator of the Cvillain, which has been one of Charlottesville's most active blogs with three to five posts daily (not to mention "a great party"), declared that he was unplugging Cvillain unless a suitor suddenly steps forward.
