Los Angeles--The U.S. District Court for the Central District of California has dismissed VeriSign’s antitrust suit against the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, a nonprofit organization that manages domain naming systems.

VeriSign’s suit was dismissed “with prejudice” on the grounds that it had failed to sufficiently allege an antitrust claim.

VeriSign, which manages the .com and .net domains, claimed its competitors dominated ICANN’s board of directors.
