Judgment No. 4288
The complaint is dismissed, as is the counterclaim for costs.
The complainant contests the decision to reject his allegations of harassment.
harassment; complaint dismissed
On his complaint form, the complainant requests oral proceedings. However, as the written submissions are sufficient for the Tribunal to reach a reasoned decision, the Tribunal sees no need for oral proceedings. That request is thus denied.
Conduct over a period of time can inform the characterisation of particular conduct as harassment (see Judgment 4233, under 3).
Jugement(s) TAOIT: 4233
WIPO seeks a costs order against the complainant on the footing that his complaint is vexatious, an abuse of process and, in addition, the complainant has used entirely inappropriate and offensive language in his pleas. The Tribunal is not satisfied such an order should be made.
