This respondent is funny, and it has nothing to do with his response.
Sometimes you have to go back to dig up gems, like this UDRP case from 2002. It was recently spotted by domain lawyer John Berryhill.
The case involved the domain name wwwsportauthority.com, a typo of the sports retailer’s site. The respondent didn’t bother to respond to the case but still managed to make this case hilarious.
Here are the parties in the case:
Complainant is The Sports Authority Michigan, Inc., Fort Lauderdale, FL (“Complainant”) represented by Robert S. Gurwin, of Rader Fishman & Grauer PLLC. Respondent is Haywood Jablome, New York, NY (“Respondent”).
Ah yes, the infamous Mr. Jablome. Here’s some deadpan from the panelist, who may not have meant to be funny:
The only information regarding Respondent’s identity indicates that Respondent is known as “Haywood Jablome.”
It’s possible that more UDRP cases will be filed against Haywood. DomainTools shows that he owns seven domain.
It’s also possible that a case will be filed against Seymour Butts some day. He owns one domain, but it’s not UnderTheBleachers.com.
