Pace sues after losing UDRP to dancewear company.
Stanley Pace, a Texas resident who has faced his fair share of UDRP complaints, lost another one last month. A three member UDRP panel ordered the domain name Yumiko.com transferred to dancewear company Yumiko, LLC.
He’s fighting back to halt the transfer and is asking for damages under the Anti-cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act for reverse domain name hijacking.
Pace filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Texas on December 30. This will halt the transfer of the domain name, and now Yumiko will find itself on the defensive.
Howard Neu, who represented Pace in the UDRP, is also representing him in the lawsuit.
