Melissa Midwest, Adrienne Meints Working to Resolve Lawsuit

Dispute surrounds sale of HotAdri.com domain.

Melissa Midwest, Adrienne Meints Working to Resolve Lawsuit
LINCOLN, Neb. - Attorneys for Internet model Adrienne Meints, aka Hot Adri, and Melissa Midwest, aka Melissa Harrington, are working to negotiate a settlement to a federal lawsuit between the two.

 

Terms of the settlement being negotiated have not been released.

 

In March, Meints filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court in Lincoln, Neb., asking a federal judge to order Midwest to give up the HotAdri.com domain name.

In the lawsuit, Meints, who formerly worked with Midwest, claimed Midwest's company Meltech Inc. purchased the domain HotAdri.com in February from Octogy Media Partners without her consent. Meints claims Octogy did not have the right to sell the name to Meltech.

 

Midwest contends she bought the name from someone else.

 

"We bought it from Steve Adri's ex-photo guy," she said. "He offered it to her at the end of January, but she never returned his message, so he waited a month, contacted us and asked us if we wanted to buy it."

 

Midwest said the seller showed that the site was registered in his name only.

 

In addition to an injunction that would return the domain name HotAdri.com to Meints, she was seeking damages between $10,000 and $100,000 from Meltech and Shane Harrington, whom the suit identifies as the sole owner or a co-owner of the company.

 

The HotAdri.com site now redirects to TeensLikeItBig.com.
