It’s been filed for over a month, but we have not seen anything mentioned. So it is possibly an exclusive, breaking news from the BFE. We will be accessing court documents soon, the filing should be illuminating. If someone else wants to do that legwork, have at it. The info you would need appears below.
Some words come to mind, unkind words. Let’s just leave it at she is a nuisance, in so many ways. We are unhappy that an overworked court with scarce time has to expend any of it dealing with this.
Case Filed in: Federal Court, Northern District of Ohio, Toledo
Case #: 3:2013cv00615
Filed on: 3/21/13
Plaintiff demands trial by jury
Some background info: Hovey claims to have received a picture years ago. Others also received it. Hovey issued an ultimatum to the picture taker and eventually published it with a copyright to the American Bigfoot Society, one of those self-founded organizations where the person claims the dictatorship. Poling makes a video and posts on youtube panning the picture and the whole copyright strategy. Others also publish the photo, which is widely panned. Hovey threatens Poling and black lists Team Taze Bigfoot. And about one year later she ponies up the $350 filing fee and sues Poling individually in federal court on a copyright violation.
An interesting cached post about the nuisance, we saw a pattern long ago, it continues. Confirming evidence that her version of fieldwork is sitting by a fire in the field, we’ve heard that one before and it crops up again.
