Followers of the IRP proceedings brought by DCA against ICANN will note that the hearing originally scheduled for December 2014 was postponed after one of the three IRP panelists stepped down for health reasons. In January 2015, the International Centre for Dispute Resolution, which is administering the proceedings, confirmed the appointment of the Honorable William J. Cahill to fill the vacancy on the IRP Panel. The case has not yet proceeded to a hearing on the merits because of scheduling difficulties and conflicts associated with ICANN’s previously scheduled stakeholder meetings. Recently, however, the IRP Panel and the parties settled upon new dates for the hearing on the merits: May 22-23, 2015. DCA remains eager to resolve the IRP and looks forward to the opportunity to present its case to the Panel.
