The Denver Post has been sued for the first time by one of the Righthaven copyright lawsuit defendants.

Attorneys for Dana Eiser, a blogger in Summerville, S.C., and her Tea Party movement group Lowcountry 9/12 sued the Post, its owner MediaNews Group Inc., Righthaven and others Monday in the Court of Common Pleas, a state court in South Carolina. Among other things, the lawsuit alleges barratry, or the improper incitement and prosecution of lawsuits, and unfair trade practices on the part of MediaNews Group and Righthaven.


Eiser was sued in federal court last year in Charleston, S.C., by Righthaven LLC of Las Vegas, which enforces copyrights for the Denver Post and the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
