A Washington County city recently settled a lawsuit that it had brought against the son of the city’s former mayor. The lawsuit involved a website that the ex-mayor’s son had set up and run for the city. Upon leaving office of the Washington County city, the ex-mayor’s son took the domain and all related e-mail addresses with him. The city sued the man, claiming that this was akin to a former employee of the city taking a city car when leaving the city’s employment. Although the son offered to sell the city the website, the city refused and instead sued the man. Under the terms of the settlement, the man is required to give back the domain and all access to the website to the city.
