In our last blog, we reported that out of 1,261 total cases decided by the FORUM in the past 6 months, only 29 Panelists filed Decisions with RICHARD HILL Deciding and reporting almost one case per day. For the 12 months ended December 31, 2022, Mr. HILL alone decided and reported 308 cases of which 300 resulted in the transfer of the subject domain name. How he could read Complaints and some Responses, analyze the the claims, and write decisions for that many cases in one year is truly a puzzle.
So for the year ended 12/3/122, the FORUM reported 2,381 total Decisions of which 2,285 (96%) were transferred to the Complainant Trademark Holder. For Contested cases, The FORUM reported 144 cases in which 93 (64.5%) were transfers, 51 denials with 10 findings of RDNH. That amounts to about ⅓ of the contested cases being denied. Still not a great percentage. The individual Panelists are listed below in rank of Denials.
