In a lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, Public Citizen seeks an injunction against John Dozier of Dozier Internet Law prohibiting Dozier from pursuing defamation and trademark claims against Ronald Riley, who runs the Web site CyberTrialLawyer-Sucks.com. The suit also seeks attorney's fees and punitive damages. "In the past month, three successive Internet hosting companies have taken down Riley’s Web site after each company received a warning letter from Dozier. Among Dozier’s complaints was that Riley used his firm’s name to link to an unrelated Web site, which Dozier claimed was a trademark infringement."
