The domain name hasn’t been seized or transferred.
Sometime today UDRPSearch.com started forwarding to ravi.lahoti.com, a page that includes information about a lawsuit against Ravi Lahoti of California.
The lawsuit makes a number of allegations against Ravi Lahoti and domain names in his possession. The suit alleges conversion, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of bailment and declaratory relief.
I’ve read the lawsuit and its allegations. It seems like a big mess.
Without commenting on the lawsuit itself, I do want to clarify one thing because a couple of people have reached out to me asking what’s going on.
Ravi Lahoti, the defendant in the suit, is the brother of UDRPSearch.com owner David Lahoti. UDRPSearch.com has not been transferred and is not connected to this case.
Although I imagine the point of forwarding the domain was to attract attention to the case, I hope that the useful service at UDRPSearch.com is restored soon. I also hope the alleged mess described in the lawsuit can be resolved soon.
