Marathon Savings Bank lost a UDRP for MarathonBank.com, so it’s trying a federal lawsuit instead.

Marathon Savings Bank, located in Wisconsin, has sued (pdf) Affordable Webhosting, Inc. for cybersquatting after losing a UDRP to get the domain name MarathonBank.com. The bank uses the domain name MarathonSavingsBank.com.

It filed a UDRP against Affordable Webhosting on September 27. A single-member WIPO panel determined that the bank “has not proved by a preponderance of evidence” that the domain was registered in bad faith.

After the UDRP decision, Marathon says that the defendant forwarded the domain to a website that featured Donald Trump’s tweets.
