James Solakian filed suit against Bible.com, Inc. in Delaware Chancery Court, according to Reuters News Agency. He says the Web site should be worth at least as much as Dictionary.com, Reference.com, and Thesaurus.com, which together sold for $100 million in 2007.
R.S. “Bud” Miller, an Arizona pastor, registered the domain name in 1996 for $50, according to Reuters. Solakian acquired 28 percent of the company’s equity in 2001, Reuters reported.
Bible.com did not return requests for comment. According to the Web site, it draws more than 2 million visitors each month and is part of a non-profit ministry that offers daily devotionals, Scripture verses, and Biblical answers on many topics.
