Spaulding Hefner sued by Continental Resources…

If you get any creepy DMs from Carol Hefner this week talking about her son's innocence, I guess we know why!

Over the weekend, we received multiple alerts via The Ogle Mole Network informing us that Robert "Spaulding" Hefner the Whatever'ith is the latest Junior Oil Overlord to be sued by House Hamm & Continental Resources for allegedly conspiring to steal the company's oil and gas secrets.

The lawsuit is similar to the one Continental filed against Blaine Dyer and his Merry Men back in April of 2020, which Spaulding is connected to as well.

Basically, Continental Resources is alleging that Spaulding and a cohort named Justin Woody conspired with a Continental employee named Matt Powe to acquire land and mineral rights in areas where the company secretly planned to do business.

As a result, the energy giant is now suing Hefner and his brosephs on a variety of claims, including breaching fiduciary duty, tortious interference with contractual relations, the misappropriation of trade secrets, and the misappropriation of business information.

The Oklahoman – which in the past has given Spaulding editorial space entirely due to his last name – also got word of the lawsuit and filed a report. Spaulding gave them the following comment:

When asked if he had anything to say about Continental Resources' lawsuit, Hefner said, "the allegations are false, and I look forward to the opportunity to address these claims." 

Yep, the allegations are false and Hefner looks forward to the opportunity to address his claims. I'm not a trust fund kid with a legacy last name, but something tells me Continental's lawyers feel the same way, especially since they have text message transcripts between Spaulding and his alleged coconspirators that give some credence to their claims:

You can view the entire lawsuit over at OSCN. It's a good read. Continental's lawyers, who I assume are big TLO fans, even cited the following tweet in an effort to expose something that we like to call in these parts the "Hefner Hypocrisy."

Just like when a restaurant chain puts "We Value Family Values" on their cups, you should always be wary and suspicious of an aspiring oil overlord who leaves a sanctimonious #reflection that muses about his or her moral superiority while experiencing the condition of man. Nine times out of 10, that's code for he's a shady screwball with no ethics who will eagerly launch a clandestine operation to acquire another company's trade secrets, and then stupidly leave behind the text message receipts.

Anyway, I guess we'll continue to monitor this insufferable lawsuit that we hope both parties find a way to lose. Stay with The Lost Ogle. We'll keep you advised.
