Subject: TRO . . . Class Action

        Who here would be willing to commit 33% of the value of their .info domains (should they be obtained in landrush) to an attorney in Philadelphia in return for that attorney pursuing a temporary restraining order (TRO) on a contingency fee basis (assuming we can locate an attorney who would be receptive to this form of payment)?  The purpose of the TRO would be to impose upon Afilias a system that effected the Domebase proposal, i.e., that would ensure that the rights of prevailing landrush preregistrants were somehow preserved.

Incidentally, the problem that I see with a class action (unless it includes a successful TRO) is that the damages would likely be some small percentage of the pregregistration fees.  This is nothing compared to the opportunity that was lost, i.e., registration thru landrush of some very valuable .info domains.
