Greg Crane as the former registrant of realestate.info is deeply invested/involved in the "online yellow page business"

see Yahoo article:
"The shareholders voted to re-elect the existing board of directors: Angelo Tullo, Walter Vogel, Harold Roberts, Gregory B. Crane, Daniel L. Coury, and DeVal Johnson."

Now there is a judgement order which gave the domain name to Insurance Claims Yellow Pages of Scottsdale, Arizona.


"State Recording Service was incorporated in Texas In November 1993 by Gregory B. Crane of 10405 N. Scotsdale Road, Suite 4, Scotsdale, Arizona. He listed 603 W. 13th St. in Austin, which is a mailbox service, as the address of his office, the lawsuit states."

--> Mr. Crane is doing business in 10405 N. Scotsdale Road.

"The annual meeting of the shareholders of YP.Net Inc. was held at the Chaparral Suites, 5001 North Scottsdale Road, Scottsdale, AZ 85250"
--> http://biz.yahoo.com/bw/020118/180208_1.html

You can't find any information of value about "Insurance Claims Yellow Pages" in the Internet. Therefore I think it is just another maildrop/mailbox business of Mr. Crane.

My opinion about that whole case:

1. Mr. Crane registred realestate.info with false trademark data fraudulently in sunrise period.
2. He was challenged several times and he knew that he would lose the domain.
3. He filed lawsuit against himself: "Insurance Claims Yellow Pages" as his mailbox business sued Mr. Crane. Mr. Crane didn't answer. Therefore the court orders that the domain should be transferred to "Insurance Claims Yellow Pages"
4. Result:
a) Mr. Crane still controls realestate.info through "Insurance Claims Yellow Pages"
b) All challenges through WIPO are terminated.
