Eichenwald Celebrates Holocaust Rembrance Day By Suing John Rivello & Threatening Action Against Others

Kurt Eichenwald

I don’t believe for one second that Kurt Eichenwald had a seizure over some flashing gif. He’d talked about his condition in public before and he detailed how he was going to turnoff the gif “autoplay” option in the Twitter settings. The guy is a known liar and a conman, and was even caught up in some shady shit surrounding the exploitation of a minor. Long story short, in my opinion, he’s a fraud and a hack who prominence in the mainstream media landscape shows you all you need to know about those band of thieves.

Oh, and he an interesting way to celebrate Holocaust Remembrance Day (the second one we’ve had this year, but I digress). He decided to sue the veteran he already stuck with multiple federal and state charges over the high crime of sending his goofy ass a “strobe effect” flashing gif. So not only is jail time a real option for said veteran, John Rivello. Now he’s also facing possible financial ruin on top of that.

Newsweek journalist Kurt Eichenwald is not done with the man he says gave him a seizure via tweet. He filed a federal lawsuit on Monday against Twitter user John Rivello.

The lawsuit stems from a December 15 incident where Rivello allegedly sent Eichenwald a tweet with a strobe light image and the text “YOU DESERVE A SEIZURE FOR YOUR POSTS.” The journalist, who suffers from epilepsy, said he actually did suffer a seizure from the incident.

News of the lawsuit comes after the FBI arrested Rivello in March. “Based on publicly-available documents associated with the criminal proceedings against Mr. Rivello, we believe that other individuals conspired with Mr. Rivello in planning and executing the sending of the strobe light to Mr. Eichenwald,” a statement from Eichenwald’s attorney reads. Eichenwald is hoping that through the discovery process his attorneys will find the people who allegedly conspired with Rivello.

“We are also considering additional civil actions against the more than 90 people who have sent flashing strobe lights to Mr. Eichenwald subsequent to the public disclosure that Mr. Rivello’s strobe attack had caused Mr. Eichenwald to have an epileptic seizure,” attorneys for Einchenwald said.

Oh, and he’s on the lookout for more lawsuits to file. What a guy! He’s like a one man walking advertisement for the pettiness of media-types. Here’s hoping that all his moneymaking schemes fail, along with the criminal charges against Mr. Rivello.

    What a small, pathetic man.

  • Celerity

    So he has seizures and tries a legal seizure?

  • Celerity

    Hahaha holy fuck, so much salt from this guy. I just had a look and it’s like 3 pages of WAH let’s attack Trump supports AH HOLY FUCK YOU’RE FIGHTING BACK QUIT FIGHTING BACK DJDNKJJKFJJKFJKFJKF while Magikarp splashing on the floor.

  • Lost Question

    would his constant litigating mark him as a vexatious litigant (cause suing a guy multiple times in a bunch of different courts for one thing seems to fit the bill)

    • Toastrider

      Depends. It’s HARD to get labeled as a vexatious litigant in a lot of jurisdictions (see: Brett Kimberlin, Bill Schmalfeldt). You generally have to show a pattern of being a colossal pain in the ass not just to the people you’re suing, but to the courts as well.

    I guess it’s up to the folks of /pol/4chan/8chan/Reddit/etc…. to search and post online his hidden skeletons in his closet.

    • ExiledV2

      What good would that do? It wouldn’t affect the lawsuits.

      • StephaneDumas

        I won’t affect the lawsuits but on the other hand showing these hidden skeletons in public like they did with Moldylocks and Eric Canton will cool his head off if he don’t have another seizure. However, he could also became a internet meme like Aids Skrillex, Carl the Cuck and Trigglypuff.

    It’s like someone didn’t realize when you fuck with petty people, they will retaliate with pettiness.

    I don’t believe for one second that Kurt Eichenwald had a seizure over some flashing gif.

    Apparently he’s got his wife’s and doctor’s testimony that he did. Hard to beat that in court.

    He decided to sue the veteran he already stuck with multiple federal and state charges over the high crime of sending his goofy ass a “strobe effect” flashing gif.

    Ayup. He said he was going to do that as well as have him charged.

    Here’s hoping that all his moneymaking schemes fail, along with the criminal charges against Mr. Rivello.

    The Feds don’t arrest unless they know they’re going to win; that’s why the conviction rate for federal charges is somewhere around 85-88%. Based on that, I’m pretty sure the charges will succeed – and if they succeed, that will affect the civil case to the detriment of Rivello.

    • ExiledV2

      ….what happened to the article about Hokoana?

  • ExiledV2

    So I don’t know where the previous post went, but in other news of the legal kind, it appears the Hokoanas have been arrested for assault. For those who don’t remember, they were the ones who shot in self-defense when they were attacked by a leftist at a Milo speech in Seattle.
