Debevoise & Plimpton v. Moore, 2000 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 6126 (D.D.C. Mar. 9, 2000).
Factual Background Edit
Plaintiffs, several national law firms and a national accounting firm, sued defendant after he registered a variation of each of the firms' names as domain names ("debevoiseplimpton.com," "fulbrightjaworski.com," "kirklandellis.com," "kpmgpeatmarwick.com," "omelvenymyers.com," "sidleyaustin.com").
Trial Court Proceedings Edit
Pursuant to a final consent judgment, the court granted a permanent injunction against defendant's use and registration of these names and any confusingly similar or dilutive names, ordered transfer of the domain names to plaintiffs, and awarded plaintiffs $25,000 in damages.
