$262,000 Awarded in monumental victory!
Legal victories versus hoaxers continue!
A four year legal battle finally concluded ON 11/5 with Wolgang Halbig failing to appear in court and judgment for SHF in the amount of $261,967.89 as compensation for attorney fees and including an additional 25% as compensation for Halbig's shenanigans.

Wolfgang Halbig sued a number of bloggers with a SLAPP suit to attempt to silence them; SHF fought back and has soundly defeated Halbig at every hearing and on every point. The first judgment totaling about $23,000. Halbig then appealed and lost. ShF cross appealed because $23,000 was too low. The appeal court agreed and instructed the trial court to recalculate the original insufficient award to SHF and to now include cost on appeal. The appeal was a published decision, meaning it is now new case law.
Prior blogs have discussed this in detail.
After the appeal, Halbig fired his attorney and laughingly attempted to represent himself.
On Monday, prior to the hearing, Halbig apparently lied to the court when he phoned in a request to continue. He reportedtly tried to claim he did not have notice; his lie only more preposterous considering the countless ridiculous emails he has sent to SHF attorneys in preparation for the hearing.
Sample email from 10/29:
The court was not impressed with Halbig's nonsense and the hearing went forward.
SHF fully anticipates Halbig will continue his shenanigans upon the Court and the award will continue to rise.
Official orders should issue relatively soon.
