Now you're looking at a defamation lawsuit and prosecution for extortion in addition to everything else. You not only stole and highjacked [sic] Judge Skolnik's domain names and website, now you are publishing a false statement to the world using the stolen domain names that [have] harmed his reputation.The note demands that the web designer forward "all codes and domain names, pictures and whatever other property rights you have converted and stole. Failure to comply shall require further legal action."
