United States District Court, Eastern District of Virginia, Alexandria Division
May 12, 2015
TRAFFIC NAMES, LTD. Plaintiff,
ZHENGHUI YIMING In Re: 224.com; 605.com, and 452.com Defendant.
Leonie M. Brinkema United States District Judge
On April 14, 2015, a magistrate judge issued a Report and Recommendation ("Report') in which she found that none of the defendants had responded to the complaint brought under the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, 15 U.S.C. § 1125(d) ("ACPA") and in which she recommended entry of the plaintiffs proposed relief requiring the transfer of the three defendant domain names to the plaintiff. The Report advised the parties, including defendant Zhenghui Yiming, who is alleged to be the individual who unlawfully took control of the three defendant domain names, that any exception to the Report was due within 14 days and that failure to file an exception waived appellate review of any judgment based on the Report. As of May 11, 2015, no exceptions have been filed.
Finding that the Report fully addresses the issues of jurisdiction, venue, and the facts, the Court adopts the Report's findings and recommendation as its own. Accordingly, for the reasons staled in the Report, plaintiffs Motion for Entry of Default Judgment [Dkt. No. 15] is GRANTED, and it is hereby ORDERED that registry Verisign, Inc. promptly cancel Zhenghui Yiming as the registrant of domain names 224.com, 605.com, and 452.com and transfer these names as directed by plaintiffs counsel, and it is further ORDERED that all other claims in this lawsuit be and are DISMISSED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
The Clerk is directed to enter judgment pursuant to Fed. R. Civ, P. 55 in favor of the plaintiff and forward a copy of this Order to counsel of record for plaintiff and to defendant via email at zhizhu2Q firstname.lastname@example.org.
