Firm Successfully Auctions Domain Name Through Rule B Action

In what may be the only case of its kind, Simms Showers successfully used a Rule B admiralty action to attach, and ultimately auction, a domain name. In Bunkers International Corporation v. Carreira Pitti, P.C. (United States District Court, Southern District of Florida, Case No. 11-cv-62753), the Court ordered the United States Marshals Service auction of the domain name following entry of default final judgment against Carreira Pitti.
