Domain lawsuit holding other parties’ domains “hostage”

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.”
