Raniere sued ATT, Microsoft; had ass handed to him

Keith Raniere sued ATT and Microsoft for patent infringement.  It seems he invented video conferencing. Who knew?

He did have a shared patent. But it got assigned to a shell corporation which got dissolved. If anyone had patent rights, it appears ironically to be Toni Natalie/Foley. As if she would give him a break at this point.

The big corps had big lawyers, and noticed he couldn’t prove he had any patent rights. So naturally he lied under oath, making up stories that he had the documentation.

The judge figured him out as a pathological liar. And not only ruled against him, with prejudice, but seems his behavior to be so extraordinary that he is required to pay the legal fees of ATT and Microsoft.

Sauce for the gander.  Requiring his victims to pay his legal fees for suing them is one of his standard tactics.

  • From one of the references:

    “Chief Judge Barbara Lynn said, “The case was exceptional because it stands out from others with respect to the unreasonable manner in which it was litigated” and added that Mr Raniere’s conduct throughout the litigation was “culminating in his untruthful testimony at the hearing on the motion to dismiss, demonstrates a pattern of obfuscation and bad faith”.

    The judge further said that, “Plaintiff’s conduct required defendants to expend significant resources to oppose plaintiff’s arguments, which the court now finds were made in bad faith to vexatiously multiply these proceedings and avoid early dismissal.”

  • What goes around comes around. He’s a massive fraud enabled by brain-dead celebrities from Vancouver and two idiotic millionaire sisters who have their head stuck in the sand because he rips off Scientology, New-Age, and centuries old well-known wisdom common to multiple faiths, mixing them together with NLP and hypnosis, so he can pretend he’s some guru in order to sleep with a bunch of women and masturbate his ego. NXIVM is the biggest waste of time ever.
