...South Carolina attorneys filed a counterclaim Friday in Charleston, S.C., federal court against Righthaven that, among other things, accuses Righthaven of violating South Carolina’s Unfair Trade Practices Act when it sued Dana Eiser of Summerville, S.C., after a Denver Post column was posted on her nonprofit website .
Eiser is affiliated with a Tea Party movement group called Lowcountry 9/12 and has a blog at lowcountry912.wordpress.com.
The Sept. 23 column at issue by Post columnist Mike Rosen was called “A letter to the Tea Partyers.”

Ms. Eiser is not messing around:
Eiser also released emails in which an attorney for Righthaven gave Eiser the opportunity to settle by paying Righthaven $15,000. Eiser's attorneys rejected this demand and instead gave Righthaven the chance to settle by paying Eiser $250,000.
