Audrey is now asserting a cause of action of cyberpiracy prevention, with alleged damages up to 0,000 per domain name, plus a claim for unfair competition.
"Defendant knew at the time she registered the Accused Domains, that Plaintiff would soon change her name to AUDREY DUNHAM," states the lawsuit. Jeff Dunham says that on January 31, 2012 (after the engagement, but before the marriage), she filed for a trademark registration on "Audrey Dunham" for personal fitness training services and consultancy.
The examining attorney at the Trademark Office is said to have determined that the mark was distinctive and protectable.
Dunham was previously married for 14 years to Paige Brown, with whom he has three children -- Bree, Ashlyn and Kenna.
Jeffrey "Jeff" Dunham (born April 18, 1962) is an American ventriloquist, producer, and stand-up comedian who has also appeared on numerous television shows, including Late Show with David Letterman, Comedy Central Presents, The Tonight Show and Sonny With a Chance.
For allegedly using her name in bad faith, Audrey wants to restrain Paige from cybersquatting and unfairly competing with her.
