Zuccarini Files Another Lawsuit, This Time Adding ICANN to the List
Friday, February 18th, 2011
Zuccarini sues three companies for negligence.
John Zuccarini has filed another lawsuit (pdf) stemming from the sale of 14 domain names on NameJet.
In this case he counts Network Solutions, NameJet, and now ICANN as defendants.
Zuccarini owes the IRS and creditors $550,000, some of which involves a cybersquatting judgment against him.
A court-appointed receiver was holding some of his domain names to satisfy these debts, but he accidentally let some of them expire. 14 domain names were subsequently auctioned off on NameJet.
Zuccarini says Network Solutions should have placed a special lock on the domain names since they were subject to a legal action. He claims Network Solutions, NameJet, and ICANN were all negligent.
He also says Network Solutions and NameJet received unjust enrichment from the auctions.
Zuccarini filed previous lawsuits in this matter that were thrown out by a judge.
He also just filed a case in Philadelphia for motions against court receiver Michael Blacksburg.
