Consulting company settles fight with Wolfgang and Gelila Puck.
New top level domain name consultancy Minds + Machines has settled its lawsuit brought against restaurateur Wolfgang Puck and his wife Gelila.
Minds + Machines, along with its parent company Top Level Domain Holdings and Frederick Krueger, sued the Pucks last month, alleging that Gelila Puck inserted herself into all of the plaintiff’s business dealings and that Wolfgang Puck had not upheld his end of the agreement to promote .food.
The Pucks, who are engaged in a number of lawsuits, asked the court to extend the deadline for responding multiple times. Today the court issued a stipulation (pdf) that the plaintiffs have dismissed the case with prejudice, meaning they have settled all claims.
The nature of the settlement was not disclosed, but presumably the Pucks gave up many, if not all, of their claims to an interest in top level domain names introduced by Minds + Machines. Perhaps Mrs. Puck realized that she was not going to be the “next Bill Gates”, as she allegedly told her friends.
