Why Did AVN.com Take Down Erik Everhard Victory Story?

Erik Everhard won his lawsuit against Red Light District yesterday. He was awarded $141,000 by the jury. AVN.com wrote a story about it found here. Then they quickly took it down. Why?

My favorite part of the story is this quote from RLD owner David Joseph: "I’m at the point where I’ve had it with these accusations and these straight-out lies from people that formerly worked for Red Light District. And anybody that wants to come after us and try to use us as a target, that think I’m just going to settle, I’m not settling. I’m going to take them all to trial. I’m not playing games. I’ve had it."

Funny how the jury believed all these "lies" sounded more like truths.

    The Erik Everhard story came dowm off AVN because RLD pays AVN $$ for advertising. Knowing the pussy,scum bag David Joseph he probably threatened them with pulling his add in AVN’s uless rag.

    The porn business is all about play to play. You will notice that Gene Ross and his pathetic website uses a similar tactic.

    1 – Gene Ross does a positive “review” or interview with someone. So what if the person is a known ripoff artist or scammer. No negative stuff is mentioned.

    2 – A few days later Gene asks them to advertise by buying banners on the already completely cluttered 1994 looking website.

    3 – If a banner is purchased Gene will post any “press release” the person asks regardless of how stupid the release might be.

    Any moron who advertises in AVN or Gene Ross is deserves to lose their money. Major money makers like nastydollars and bangbros ignored AVN for years and years and were still successful.

    People who read Gene Ross do not buy adult videos so why on earth would someone need to buy banner space? That shitbag Donny Long who shoots without permits and without tested talent will face Karma soon enough.

    The story still seems to be up on their website. As far as the money angle is concerned, who do you think advertises more; Jules Jordan Video (EE’s distributor) or RLD?

    Whats this “haters” crap? Try expanding your vocabulary..if a man makes an intelligent on-target comment about the hordes of creeps in this industry you might use words lie, oh…”indignant outrage” or “justified contempt” etc etc…look them up there are lots of online dictionaries to help you. BTW some one with a mafia-like name johnnyfiveangels etc. doesnt play a very convincing Ghandi. Peace and love Sunshine.

    Setting the record straight:

    This is Larry Isenberg – I was lead trial counsel for Red Light District at the recent trial between Erik Everhard Entertainment, Inc. and World Red Light District. I am writing this to “set the record straight,” as I have seen numerous inaccurate statements regarding the recent trial.

    First: Erik Everhard did not “prevail on all claims,” despite a quote to that effect attributed to his lawyer, Sean Macias. In fact, Mr. Everhard prevailed on only 3 of the 15 claims that he alleged in his Complaint, many of which were dismissed by the Court halfway through the case because Plaintiff failed to put on enough evidence even to allow those claims to go to the jury; this included all claims that had been asserted against Mr. Joseph individually. In addition, the jury rejected Everhard’s request for punitive damages.

    Second: Everhard initially sought $639,000 from Red Light District. By the time trial began, Everhard’s accounting expert, Steven Sills, had revised his damage claim, and testified at trial that Everhard was entitled to $475,000; Red Light District acknowledged that it owed Everhard $52,000.

    Third: The jury rejected all of Mr. Sills damage theories and awarded Everhard (1) the $52,000 that Red Light acknowledged it owed; and (2) an additional $89,000.

    That is what actually happened at the trial of Erik Everhard Entertainment, Inc. v. World Wide Red Light District. If anyone has any questions about this, they can e-mail me at Lisenberg@kesterisenberg.com

    All this over a measly $140k? It’s just not a big deal at all. This is a clear indication that with bittorrent and youporn there’s going to be even less money to be made off porn as time goes on and we are going to see lots of nasty battles like this over whatever little money is left. I hope for his sake that Everhard invests his winnings wisely……
