Thu 31 Mar

A federal appeals court last week may have written the final chapter to a sordid legal saga that helped establish Internet domain names as property.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Stephen Cohen's appeal of a 2001 federal court ruling that he pay businessman Gary Kremen $65 million for stealing the domain name Sex.com in 1995 and building it into a multimillion-dollar business.

Despite the recent dismissal of an appeal he filed to a $65 million ruling against him, Steve Cohen feels he will ultimately clear his name in the long-running Sex.com case.

"I believe this is all going to go back to square one," Cohen told XBiz, "and if it does, I will prevail." Cohen said that a series of judicial missteps and outright lies would bring the case back to trial.

A Tijuana woman registered to participate in the SENTRI program was arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers at the San Ysidro border station Wednesday morning after they found over 200 pounds of marijuana in the trunk of her vehicle, officials announced today.

A suspicious CBP officer referred Jhuliana Aramis Cohen, 21, and her 2001 Kia Optima to the secondary inspection lot at 11:30 a.m. after she entered the U.S. in one of the designated SENTRI lanes.

As the maroon Kia Optima crept toward the United States in a lane designed to speed people through the San Ysidro port of entry, the world's busiest border crossing, two weeks ago, an inspector noticed trouble.

The government's computerized Secure Electronic Network for Travelers Rapid Inspection system, or SENTRI, didn't recognize the transponder, a device the size of a cigarette pack used to identify the car, on Jhuliana Aramis Cohen's windshield.

Gary Kremen, owner of the Sex.com web portal, won a permanent injunction against plaintiff Stephen Cohen Friday, marking a major turn in the road for a longstanding case involving the theft of the Sex.com domain and the recovery of an unpaid $65 million judgment awarded to Kremen in 2001.

Sun 2 Oct

Gary Kremen was awarded the keys to several of long-time nemesis and convicted Sex.com thief Stephen Michael Cohen’s properties Friday by U.S. District Court judge James Ware.

The court turned over to Kremen personal property located at a data center in Otay Mesa, Calif., which turned out to be the jewel of Kremen’s award.

Chris Jester, the owner of hosting service provider Split Infinity, has been working with Kremen in trying to locate Cohen, whom Jester says is currently in Tijuana.

You can't escape to Mexico with your millions.

Or so it seems for Stephen Michael Cohen, a former Rancho Santa Fe resident accused of stealing a pornographic Web site and illegally making millions of dollars from it.

Cohen, 57, was living in Tijuana. He was arrested yesterday by Mexican authorities while applying for a work permit. They turned him over to U.S. officials, who had an arrest warrant signed by a San Jose judge.

Four years after dodging a $65-million court judgment by fleeing the country, former online-porn mogul Stephen Michael Cohen was arrested by Mexican authorities in Tijuana and handed over Thursday to U.S. agents.

Cohen, a multiple felon and longtime con man, had been on the run since before 2001, when a judge ordered him to pay a San Francisco entrepreneur for hijacking the Internet address Sex.com. In 1995, Cohen forged a letter to Internet authorities to gain control of the address, which he transformed into a highly profitable site for pornography ads.
