Domain lawsuit holding other parties’ domains “hostage”

ZFBot

A lawsuit that was filed to reverse a court-mandated domain portfolio auction, has somehow taken over the domains of 3rd parties, who are unrelated to the original dispute.

In an article at Domain Name Wire, the unfolding story mentions some well-known domainers, “including Adam Strong, Nat Cohen, Merlin Kauffman and Andrew Rosener, who either bought domains directly from the auction’s receiver, or now own domains that were sold by the receiver.”

We could locate 11 domain names that are actively managed by Associated Recovery LLC, the company that filed the domain recovery lawsuit.

These domains were somehow taken away from their Registrants and were moved to a Uniregistry account:

3dcamera.com
744.com
fxf.com
jtz.com
kou.com
ruten.com
sdu.com
uhw.com
vgj.com
yey.com
ylz.com

It is unclear how they were transferred away from the previous domain Registrar; as they are all .com, we’re assuming that Verisign was served with some type of court order.

Domain law.

Domain law.

The following domains were temporarily in the possession of Associated Recovery LLC, but not any more:

ocu.com
yjx.com
yte.com

These three domains belong to three separate owners, which presumably filed some type of legal motion and got them back.

It is unclear, at this time, what is the status of the pending lawsuit.

    The court order awarding the names to Associated Recovery has been floating around. Here is a copy:

    The court docs say that the name were stolen from Associated Recovery and the court gave them back.
