  Is this a registration/registrar problem that went way too
far?  Is the registrar potentially liable here or did this
lawyer or judge not pre-read his briefs close enough before 
filing and rendering a decision accordingly? ( no pun intended ) >;)  
Or perhaps Ms. Jones was or should have been reading her lawyers 
briefs ect., before he filed them.  Maybe she was reading some 
of his other 'briefs' and got confused? >;)

"It appears that Cincinnati Bengals cheerleader Sarah Jones and 
her lawyer were so upset by a comment on the site TheDirty.com 
that they missed the 'y' at the end of the name.  Instead, they 
sued the owner of TheDirt.com, whose owner didn't respond to 
the lawsuit. The end result was a judge awarding $11 million,
in part because of the failure to respond. Now, both the owners of
TheDirty.com and TheDirt.com are complaining that they're being
wrongfully written about in the press one for not having had any
content about Sarah Jones but being told it needs to pay $11 million, and
the other for having the content and having the press say it lost a
lawsuit, even though no lawsuit was ever actually filed against it."
