There is a very interesting story about FF.com on Jalopnik.com. The article deals with the broker of FF.com not getting paid their 15% commission. Hat tip to George Kirikos. Looking at Domain Tools the seller was Bank of America.

The complaint asks for economic damages in an “amount to be proven at trial but not less than $210,000, representing a 15 percent commission on the $1,400,000 transaction,” along with miscellaneous costs and expenses of the suit.
