Vortal Group, Inc. is guilty of Reverse Domain Name Hijacking

Case Number: Case #37

Complainant: Vortal Group, Inc.

Represented by: Roger N. Behle Jr., of Behle Law Corporation

PoliceAuction.com – Complainant is Vortal Group, Inc. (“Complainant”), represented by Roger N. Behle Jr., of Behle Law Corporation, 575 Anton Boulevard, Suite 710, Costa Mesa, CA 92626. “Moreover, the Panel finds that filing a UDRP proceeding – which on its face can be qualified as frivolous – without any basis to do so should be construed in the present case as harassing. Here, Complainant admitted it knew that the domain name was registered prior to its using the at-issue mark in commerce. When, as in the present case, Complainant is unable to show trademark rights through use or otherwise which predate registration of the at-issue domain name, then it becomes impossible for it to prevail. In the case before the Panel, there is no way that Complainant could have reasonably expected to prevail and its counsel should have known better. “Vortal Group, Inc. is a convicted Reverse Domain Name Hijacker and “counsel should have known better”
