Domain Protection LLC’s motion to dismiss this Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act action was denied by a federal district court in Texas. Mercury Luggage Manufacturing Co. owns the luggage and trunk manufacturer Seward Trunk and its trademark of the same name, and it claims that Domain Protection registered the domain name sewardtrunk.com in bad faith. According to the court, Mercury’s claim isn’t barred by the statute of limitations due to the fact that the suit was filed 14 years after the domain was registered, because under the continuing tort doctrine, the four-year statute of limitations restarts each day the domain is used. And although laches applies to Lanham Act claims, Domain didn’t show that it took any action it otherwise wouldn’t have taken if Mercury had filed suit earlier, the court found. The case is Mercury Luggage Mfg. Co. v. Domain Prot., LLC, 2020 BL 24535, N.D. Tex., No. 3:19-cv-01939-M, 1/22/20.
