Domain investor files preemptive lawsuit after UDRP filing

It’s his second lawsuit in just a few days, too.

An image of justice with scales and the words "lawsuits"

If you’re going to court for one domain name matter, why not a second one?

Last week, I wrote about how domain name investor Stanley Pace filed a lawsuit to block the transfer of Celluvation.com. Pace filed the case after losing a UDRP for the domain name.

It turns out that’s not the only case Pace filed with the court last week. On Friday, his attorney Derek Newman filed a second case (pdf). This one is against Normani GmbH over the domain name Normani.com. [Update: Pace dismissed the lawsuit after winning the UDRP.]

Like the Celluvation.com case, Pace is asking for declaratory relief as well as a finding of reverse domain name hijacking.

Unlike the Celluvation.com case, World Intellectual Property Organization hasn’t yet published a determination on the UDRP for Normani.com. [Update 11/6/20: WIPO denied the UDRP.]

Pace has a history of challenging UDRP decisions in court.
