    Nothing in the UDRP permits a resolution provider to change its decisions after they are announced. If NAF suddenly made up a new rule that allowed them to do so in response to a threatened lawsuit, then that itself would be evidence of corruption and bias on the part of the resolution providers, and would in fact in the long run work against the interests of individual domain name holders, because in the future it would be likely that any big corporation that lost an attempted reverse domain hijacking under the UDRP would simply threaten to sue the provider unless they reversed the decision immediately, and under the precedent you want them to set in your case they'd have to comply.

    You have the right to seek overturning of the decision in court; several other UDRP losers have gone that route, and some of them might even win. But the supplemental rules of NAF don't permit you to directly sue them or their panelists unless you can prove intentional wrongdoing on their part. Sure, you're alleging such wrongdoing, but can you prove it?

    Have you ever heard the quote "you'll get nothing and like it." Well, that's what's going to happen in your case. You say:"The Case MUST be overturned, reversed or reheard or both ICANN and NAF will be put out-of-business PERMANENTLY. I will make sure of it if they do not." But the case won't be overturned, because the panel made a fair decision. It's not going to be reheard (out of 7,000 cases, a respondent has never had a case reheard). You're at the back of the line, bloke. If any case should be reheard, how about heel.com? barcelona.com? (oh that's a WIPO case, anyway).

    There is nothing that you can do, successfully, that will cause the NAF to stop issuing UDRP decisions. You're bitter, but too bad.
