Cosmos European Travels AG Wins Summary Judgment

On Friday, July 26, 2002, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia granted our client Cosmos European Travels AG complete relief on summary judgment -- ruling that the domain name must be transferred to our client, and enjoining Eurotech or any of its successors from using, cosmotravels, or any confusingly similar marks in U.S. commerce. The Court had previously dismissed Eurotech's claims that, by prevailing in the prior Uniform Domain Name Policy ("UDRP") against Eurotech, Cosmos AG was liable for abuse of process, tortious interference with prospective business, and conversion under state law. Congratulations go out to the legal team who helped the client achieve its goal: Bob Riggs, Rose Auslander, Jack Cahill, Peter Killough, Eli Bard, Mike Maroney, Patrick FitzGerald, summer associates Marcia Miller and Amy Wood and lead paralegals Mara Leff and Tony Butler. Appreciation is extended to Tom Davis, for his support throughout the litigation and earlier UDRP domain name arbitration, Susan Kalib, who helped on the earlier dismissal motions, and Kim Arestad, who helped with the UDRP.
