Gawker Files for Bankruptcy, Also Files Lawsuit Against Infamous Troll Chuck C. Johnson

The tables are turned on the Rage Furby

You may have heard that Gawker filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection today, but as part of their action they’ve also filed an “adversary” lawsuit naming Hulk Hogan, journalist Ashley Terrill, and our old pal, infamous cyberstalker and all around nasty douchebag Chuck C. Johnson.

After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and priming the way for its planned sale to Ziff Davis, Gawker Media has now sued Hulk Hogan, journalist Ashley Terrill, Charles C. Johnson and others who Gawker has been battling in court in recent months.

By initiating an adversary case, Gawker hopes to stave off the possibility of paying off judgments that it says would have a “crippling effect on the Debtor’s estates, prospects of reorganization, and distribution to creditors.”

Chuck the Rage Furby talked to the Daily Caller about this, boasting and preening of course, but check out how he describes his failed lawsuit against Gawker and Nick Denton:

Johnson told The Mirror that he has dropped his lawsuit against Gawker. In fact, he didn’t even show up to a May court date on the matter. “It is kind of interesting of them to come after to me, although I think it’s a move of desperation on their part,” he said.

In the real world, Chuck C. Johnson’s lawsuit against Gawker in Missouri was thrown out of court.

The other suit he filed in Fresno, California, that he says he “dropped?” Well, not exactly; he’s just lying to make himself look better, as usual.

In fact, he simply failed to show up for his hearing, and is now under court order to show cause and explain why he shouldn’t face sanctions from the court for wasting its time.

And now he’s on the receiving end of a lawsuit himself, for which he’ll have to spend his own money. Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.

Here’s the legal document filed by Gawker:
